KnitWit Yarn Shop is hosting their first of what we hope to be annual knitting retreats!
KnitWit Yarn Shop in Portland, Maine is thrilled to be offering a fiber-retreat this summer. Located right on the ocean, this event will be held at Searsport Shores Ocean Campground in Searsport, ME, June 24 - 27, 2021. This campground is a magical place for makers. Everything about this location creates a feeling of home for artists. KnitWit at the Shores is open to all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. What brings us together is the love of our craft, and that makes us family.
Bristol Ivy, Jackie Ottino, and Alicia Plummer will be joining us to teach knitting, spinning, dyeing, and designing classes. When you’re not in class you’ll have the opportunity to join a yoga class, go kayaking, visit the adorable mid-coast towns in Maine, hike the trails, or hang out in the gardens or with the cashmere goats and sheep. You may choose to relax, visit the marketplace, or just knit in the beautiful outdoor setting.
We will follow all current COVID guidelines and be limited to 50 people. Classes will be held outdoors with masks and social distancing. Should the state open up to larger groups we may be able to open the event for more attendees.
Your investment includes all meals, three 3-hour classes (one of your choice with each teacher), class supplies (for dye classes and Sheep to Sweater)*, a fabulous swag bag, 2 hours of kayak rentals (if you choose lodging at the campground), some extra surprises, yoga classes, and all taxes and gratuities. There are also options to include meals for family members joining you or an extra class.
*A full list of all homework and materials needed for your classes will be emailed to you 30 days prior to the event.
Retreat investment is $1299. Early bird rate of $1098 extended for the first KnitWit retreat!.
