Knit.
Relax.

- Rank classes when registering

- Price: $995

Wayfarers: 

- Have free time each morning, followed by an informal 90-minute session

- Get a session from each of the wayfarer guides

- Price: $845

Everyone: 

- Gathers together for meals and evening events

- Attends as many (or few) of the afternoon sessions as they like

- Has time to relax and explore Sebasco

Curious about the rooms? Lodging is not included in the retreat price, due to the wide variety of options at Sebasco. They've held a large group of rooms for us at a discounted rate - upon acceptance, you'll get a room information sheet with instructions for how to register. Rates for a single room vary from around $130 for a room in a cabin with a shared bathroom to $270 for a suite with jacuzzi tub and fireplace - and there are plenty of rooms to share, as well!

..it was a wonderful weekend with good food, attentive staff, amazing teachers, and a great group of knitters. Thanks!

You are wonderful. Your positive attitude sets the tone for the entire weekend. I truly appreciate your acceptance of everyone as they come.

Had a great time as always. My fourth time attending... ...I brought a friend for the first time and she loved it too.

This was so much fun Amy. The people were nice, the location was beautiful, the accommodations and food were surprisingly good - typically mass food production is just okay. Me, my sister and my mom loved every minute of it. Can't wait for next year.


we're full! but don't despair...
