Join Me For AffiKNITy Knitting Retreat
AffiKNITy Retreat, Sept 11 – 14, 2020
I am so excited announce our first knitting retreat in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I hope you can join me, and an amazing group of teachers, at Sebasco Harbor Maine for the first AffiKNITy.
I wanted to create a special weekend where every knitter feels welcome. Whether you’ve been knitting for 2 months or 20 years, whether you’re traveling alone or with a group of friends, whether you like to be in class all day or have a ton of free time . . . this is the retreat for you.
Please join me for three days of knitting, laughing, learning, and spending time with like-minded people in one of the most beautiful places on earth — Truly HEAVEN!
I hope to see you there!
Κnit, Learn, Laugh, Repeat
Welcome to AffiKNITy, The Knitting Retreat You Customize!
This is the retreat you can make your own! Enjoy two different class packages with our amazing team of teachers.
Customize it all! You will be able to pick from two class packages, build your own schedule choosing the times and class style that fit your needs — first come first served, so register as soon as it opens to get your first choices. Choose a little or a lot, it’s up to you. Everyone will be together in the evenings for knitting, games, fashion shows, and fun.
You Choose It All — How Registration Works
1) Choose Class Package
Some knitters want three days of education, some knitters want to take a class or two and have plenty of hang-out time. That’s why we offer two different class packages.
- Full Hank
3 classes, one from each guest teacher
- Mini Skein
1 class from one guest teacher
Both packages will have the chance to take a Tips & Tricks class with Patty (come with your questions!), and access to all evening events, a workshop from Kate Atherley, a talk from Bristol Ivy, and the kickoff session for Patty’s fall video sweater class (included free with the retreat!)
2) Choose Class Style and Time
Everyone learns at their own pace, so we are offering three different class styles. In addition, you can choose when you take classes because each teacher will present their class four times.
In the detailed schedule in the brochure, you will see that each instructor teaches one “Relaxed,” one “Mixed,” and two “Loaded” sessions.
This class will spend a bit more time on fundamentals as we take our time to explore the class content. Perfect for both the newer knitter or the knitter who wants a more relaxed class pace.
A little something for everyone! This class will be for mixed levels. It will dig a bit deeper than the relaxed group. Perfect for knitters of different skill levels who are traveling together, or for the newer knitter who doesn’t mind jumping right in.
This class will be chock full of goodies. We’ll be taking a deep dive into the class topic, and we may even get into extra credit tricks. Perfect for the knitter who wants to gobble up all the ideas or the newer knitter who doesn’t mind observing new things!
Schedule at a Glance
There are classes during the day, and crazy fun at night. Whether you pick the Full Hank or Mini Skein, you will still have lots of time to just relax, hang out, knit, and enjoy all that Maine has to offer.
