2020 Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat Registration

Hey Ya’ll,

A hearty southern greeting to the male knitters of the Southeast and elsewhere! It has been quite an unusual year for us all and I am more than ready to start planning the 2020 Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat!!!  This is our 10th year and I am excited that we will have our own space this year for all activities including meals.  I am also researching an item to commemorate this occasion.

We are back at The YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC (just east of Asheville).  This year’s retreat will be Thursday, November 12-Sunday, November 15. There is a possibility of an additional day for those who wish to arrive on Wednesday.  I would need to know if you want to stay the additional day.  There would be an additional fee to stay the extra day and We would need at least 15 to make it cost effective.  Our field trip is an afternoon trip to Black Mountain Yarn Shop at their new location.  All our other outings and activities will be determined by our COVID-19 Phase (Currently we are in a Phase 2 extension).   I’ve confirmed this weekend with Danielle at Blue Ridge Assembly and they are very excited to have us back. We will be in McCarty Lodge and I have tentatively planned out for 25 attendees. There are a very limited number of private rooms (5) available on a first come first served basis. Prices have decreased a little this year (because we are cooking for ourselves).  I also need a show of hands/commitment before I can make a deposit on the reservation.  The deposit and contract are due as soon as we are able to pay.  The deposit total is $1000.00. You may pay a deposit to hold your spot ($125.00 shared room, $150.00 private) or you can pay in full.  


Thursday, November 12 (3 pm)-Sunday, November 15 (Before Noon)

Here’s the fee/price breakdown per person:

$250.00 – shared housing for 4 day/3 nights (Thurs-Sun, Room, LINENS, and retreat fees!!!)

$300.00- private room for 4 day/3 nights (Thurs-Sun, Room, LINENS, and retreat fees!!!).  – Private Rooms SOLD OUT


Check-In Time is 3 pm (11/12), Check-Out Time is 10am (11/15).

I must have at least 20 sign up and pay deposit to book reservation. Private rooms will go fast and sharing is economical and appreciated. 

There will be ABSOLUTELY no refunds, once we reach the 30 Day mark (10/12/2020).  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 hook for reservation and fees, I am not sure I would be able to refund full amount within the 30 day window.  

I have given Blue Ridge Assembly 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 July. 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 Register/Pay button!

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 !!!
