May I ask where home is.  I am in the Greater NY/NJ area.

 

There is very interesting weekend being held at the Mohonk Inn in New Paltz, NY.  Very costly to stay there, but I a  waiting to get a brochure to make any decisions on that one.  Luckily, I have friends in the area!  :-0

Way over here on the west coast - california. 

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25

There must be wonderful "crafty" places and people there.  I used to love to vista shops in SF area when I traveled for business..and in the wine country too.  NYC has very sophisticated knit shops....when in that mode-I prefer a friendlier atmosphere.  thanks again for your input

My thinking exactly.  All up and down the little towns and bigger cities, plenty of shops along the coast and in the valleys too.  We love the wine country drive too.  Also I have to say I love going to a library and meeting people living in the area, making a connection with local knitters as well.  I have a few favs where the libraries are super cozy and nice place for quiet knitting and books and dvds to take home.

Thanks for the information. I live in Durham, NC and always feel like all the good retreats and classes are somewhere else. I love the Blowing Rock area. I doubt I'll be able to make this one, but it's great to know it's there.

I see this post is quite old, but I live in Essex and teach knitting & crocheting lessons privately. I can be reached at Kimberli@TheMacKayWay.com.
