Oh... this has been a long time in the planning! Who wants to come knit with me and Kate Atherley in my hometown of Ithaca, NY?




November 10th-13th, 2017



(e-mail Laura to be put on a wait list)


I've planned an extra special intimate weekend with lots of time to expand our knitting knowledge, explore the Finger Lakes Region, eat great food, taste our local wines and spirits, and knit together! Part of what took so long to make this happen was finding the perfect home base! We'll be based at the brand new Marriott, right at the base of The Commons in Ithaca, NY. This means there are a plethora of amazing restaurants, shopping, coffee, used book stores, craft galleries, bars AND BEST YET? A yarn store right across the street!

We've arranged to have the meeting rooms on the 2nd floor of the Marriott over looking downtown Ithaca all to ourselves, it will be open from 7am-11pm everyday for knitting/hanging/being together!
