Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat – Upstate NY
The annual Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat takes place at Easton Mountain, in Greenwich, NY. It typically takes place over the third weekend in May each year. The retreat officially starts on Thursday afternoon and ends after lunch on Sunday. The retreat is open to any man, age 21 or over who cares to enjoy the community of fiber-enthusiasts (knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, tatters, etc.).
Registration fees for the Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat include:
- Nine meals (starting with dinner on Thursday evening and ending with lunch on Sunday afternoon)
- Lodging in different accommodation options
- Participation in retreat activities
The retreat rents the entire property for the duration of the retreat, so other than staff and volunteers of Easton Mountain, we are the only people on premises. We use gathering places such as the great room, front porch, the temple, the sun porch, and the back deck for social stitching, workshops and impromptu tutoring sessions.
Amenities of the retreat center include a hot tub, a pool and a nightly wood-burning sauna.
Registration typically opens on the first Saturday of the year (unless that day is New Years, and then it’s the second Saturday of the year) at 11:00 am (Eastern U.S./Canadian time).
The Spring retreat fills up VERY quickly each year. Usually in under ten minutes. So, if you’re interested, be prepared to register at the exact time registration opens and/or get your name on the waiting list early. Get notified about the retreat by signing up to be notified.
