MOONTIDE Lace Knitting on Cape Cod
Week-Long Retreat
June 1-8, 2019
Wellfleet, MA
JUST A FEW SPOTS LEFT!  Register today!
Join us for a fabulous week spent with fellow knitters in beautiful, serene Wellfleet, Cape Cod. Focus on your knitting and enjoy a lovely beach vacation at the same time. Classroom time is mixed with free time for vacation activities and show/share/knit in the evenings.  Lodging options include right by the ocean, in a group of cottages which back up to the National Seashore, the same ones we've been enjoying for years.
 
The pattern for the retreat project will be exclusively available only to the retreat attendees and is a strictly kept secret until the first day of the retreat!  You'll advance both your technical skills and your ability to translate your creativity into a knittable piece. There will be approximately 24 hours of instruction at our class house which has a large, comfortable classroom. We will have classes each morning, Sunday through Friday in the class cabin.  Afternoons are free for vacation fun. Most evenings include a get-together of some sort. Total number of students is limited to 18.

CLASSROOM: The classroom is in a private home with a large first floor living room at 110 Commercial Street, Wellfleet, MA.  There's a variety of seating options for students.  The rest room and refreshments are provided on the first floor as well.
 
LODGING: We recommend cabins in Surfside Cottages www.surfsidecottages.com (not roughing it, these are comfortable small houses). You can share these cabins comfortably if you would like, usually with 3 people per cabin. All cabins have one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, heat, clock radios, telephone, free wifi with internet access and blankets. Most cabins have two bedrooms with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate 2-3 stair steps, a few have no stairs at all. Most also have an outdoor shower.  You will need to bring: sheets and towels, food (stores are expensive in the village and the nearest supermarket is ½ hour away), perhaps a small fan, lawn chair or bike if desired. All indoor spaces in Wellfleet are non-smoking by law.
 
THE TOWN Wellfleet has it all when it comes to water—ocean (Surfside is right on the ocean), kettle ponds and the bay. The National Seashore Park takes up 1/3  of the town and is free from development. Sand roads throughout offer endless nature walks. The paved bike trail winds through on the old railroad bed. The village itself is known as a gallery town. There is a marvelous flea market on Sat & Sun and several antique stores. Provincetown is 20 minutes away for serious arty shopping and other cultural activities including whale watching.
   
COPYRIGHT I do not copyright my class handouts other than the project book.  I want you to share anything taught or discussed in class.
 
GETTING THERE Wellfleet is 2.5 hours from Boston airport and about the same from Providence RI. Figure about 1 hour after you cross the canal.  Arrival time is Sat in the afternoon.  Departure is Sat in the morning.
 
COST: All instruction, pattern and yarn is $700.   
 
Payment Schedule is as follows:
$400 Registration reserves your spot (not refundable)
$300 Final balance due by April 1st (not refundable)
 
If you would prefer to pay more in advance or make monthly payments that can be arranged.

This is a rare non-lace workshop suitable for any knitter! We'll use creative shaping techniques and different types of stitches to recreate the drape of this cozy wrap featured on the character Briana of the show series Outlander in the episode in which she is reunited with her mother and meets her father.  I'm using a Malabrigo aran weight superwash merino which is just perfect in weight and color for the project.  Contact me in advance to arrange to order some for your project, or bring your own yarn.  Anything close to an aran weight or heavy worsted weight would work well.
