Vermont Knitting Getaways start on Wednesday and end on Sunday after lunch. However, you may choose your arrival day, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, as long as you stay 2 or more nights. Over the years folks have had so much fun that most come for three nights Knitters and many for 4 nights. The price includes your accommodations, meals and all knitting classes.

Our knitting retreats are very relaxed with informal classes featuring a class project or knitting technique. Classes are based on attendees suggestions. A small sampling of the classes held over the years are: lace knitting, entralac felted bags, brioche knitting, cabled hat, color Knitted Items techniques, various sock techniques, sweaters: start to finish. You are not required to take the classes if you would like to just enjoy the company of folks sharing your same passion for knitting. The Vermont Knitting Getaway retreats average between 15 to 25 participants. And, due to the intimate size of the group, you are welcome to bring your own projects and receive individual knitting asssistance. There is but one requirement and that is you knit an item for donation to a local charity. The item can be for a baby, child, adult, man or woman. Knitting Weekend

The atmosphere is that of a traditional ski lodge complete with antique skis and snowshoes on the walls, large fieldstone fireplaces in the public rooms (where you will gather to Mountaineer Inn Dinnerknit, chat, laugh and snack) and plenty of room to spread out. Breakfasts are cooked-to-order, lunches are served buffet style and dinners are 4 courses with your choice of entree each evening. The Inn is BYOB, allowing you to bring your own spirits if you so Mountaineer Inn Foodchoose.
