Knitter's Retreat
Pack your knitting bag, your half-done projects, your favorite yarns and patterns, and join us on the island for a mid-summer getaway designed for those who love the fiber arts. Amidst wild roses and towering spruce, with unobstructed views of Penobscot Bay, you'll learn from and be inspired by your fellow knitters and local experts. We'll discuss challenges and share ideas while enjoying the beauty of Whitehead Island, its rich maritime history, the elegant Keeper's House, and delicious fresh meals (sample menu) prepared with local ingredients. Whether you're a skilled knitter or a beginner, this is an opportunity to relax and regroup in a breathtakingly beautiful setting, enhance your knitting skills, and enjoy good company.
