2018 Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat Registration
A hearty southern greeting to the male knitters of the Southeast! It has been a wild and crazy year for me and I am more than ready to start planning the Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat 2018!!!
We are returning to Asbury Hills Retreat Center in Cleveland, SC (about 30 minutes north of Greenville). We are keeping the weekend the same in order to incorporate a visit to SAFF, Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair ( http://saffsite.org/ ). This year’s retreat will be Thursday, October 25-Sunday, October 28. Our field trip is an afternoon trip to SAFF. After our field trip we will have dinner out that evening. Dinner will be determined in the next few weeks. I’ve confirmed this weekend with Emily at Asbury Hills and they are very excited to have us back. We will either be in Creekside and/ or Batson depending on the number of attendees. I have tentatively planned out for 23 attendees. There are a very limited number of private rooms (3) available on a first come first served basis. Prices have increased a little this year so I raised the deposit and cost to reflect this increase. We are still very affordable. I also need a show of hands/commitment before I can make a deposit on the reservation. The deposit and contract are due on July 31st. The deposit total is $2340.00. I can bill you for a deposit to hold your spot ($125.00 shared room, $150.00 private) or you can pay in full.
Thursday, October 25 (1 pm-ish)-Sunday, October 28 (Before Noon)
Here’s the fee/price breakdown per person:
$285.00 – shared housing for 4 day/3 nights (Thurs dinner-Sun breakfast includes 7 meals, LINENS, and retreat fees!!!)
$335.00- private room for 4 day/3 nights (Thurs dinner-Sun breakfast includes 7 meals, LINENS, and retreat fees!!!).
$285.00(sharing)($335.00 private room) GRAND TOTAL
Private Rooms SOLD OUT – Shared Rooms Still available!
Check-In Time is 1 pm-ish (10/25), Check-Out Time is 11 am-ish (10/28).
I must have at least 8 sign up and pay to book reservation (for 1 building), then at least 12 more for the second building. Private rooms will go fast and sharing is economical and appreciated.
There will be ABSOLUTELY no refunds, once we reach the 30 Day mark (9/25). In the past if someone has not been able to attend, I have been able to refund money or they graciously donated their spot to someone. This year being on the ball with reservation and fees, I am not sure I would be able to refund full amount within the 30 days.
I have given Asbury Hills our request for reservation but we don’t officially have the reservation until I make the deposit. I’ll be signing the contract by the end of the month. I need to be able to book the reservation soon so no one else books the spot. The sooner you can reserve and make your payment, the sooner I can sign the contract. If you’re interested in going, please let me know and I will give you info to send deposit or full amount through Paypal. I am not going to send invoices this year, money sent directly does not incur fees.
If you are ready to pay, choose a payment option and Click on the Paypal button! All fees will come through the Men’s Knitting Retreat Website:
I look forward to seeing all your faces for this year’s retreat! Please share this with anyone I’ve overlooked or that you think would like to join us. Thanks, Ya’ll !!!
