Knitting Getaway

Pre-Registration for Session I:Knitting Getaway has Closed
Shakerag Workshops will open its traditional two weeks of programming with a three-day getaway just for knitters, hosted by Ann Shayne and Kay Gardiner of Modern Daily Knitting.


Course Description

The Shakerag Knitting Getaway will be a true getaway: a few beautiful days for knitters to gather at St. Andrew’s-Sewanee to enjoy good food, beautiful natural surroundings, and each other. There will be a variety of fun things to do. We will knit and hang out; eat and drink; hike Shakerag Hollow; swim in pristine water; do yoga; and enjoy a variety of short classes.

Each participant will do all of these things, any of these things, or, perhaps, none of these things—exactly as we wish. The one constant will be relaxation and knitting in the company of other knitters.
