Knit Ithaca is my flagship retreat here in my hometown of Ithaca, NY.
Every year the workshops are different, and this year I am excited to welcome local makers to guide us through natural dying and jewelry making, in addition to having knitwear designer Carol Feller join us from Ireland. We'll also visit Ithaca's infamous local farmers market, see my favorite waterfall, and stay up WAY too late knitting and talking.
Knit Ithaca will be based at the Marriott, right in the heart of downtown. That means we’ll be within walking distance to a plethora of amazing restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, used book stores, craft galleries, and bars. Our Knitting Headquarters (KHQ) will be the big meetings rooms on the 2nd floor of the Marriott that overlook downtown. These rooms will be open from 7am-11pm everyday just for us to knit and hang out together!
The retreat starts on Thursday Nov 4th at 3pm with check-in and then a local food spread, it ends Sunday morning at 11am (checkout time). Those staying for Spa Sunday will check out Monday at 11am.
What's Included in the Retreat?
Optional: Spa Sunday at The Spa at the Inns of Aurora (only 20 spots available)
Includes: Transport to the Spa, 1 spa treatment (you'll sign up for this with Laura), lunch at the spa and accommodations at the Marriott on 11/7.
