with Thea Colman and Laura Nelkin!

November 8th-11th, 2019
(with optional Maker Monday extension)


I do have a waiting list... please e-mail me to have your name added to it!

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, AND bars.

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!
