November 5 - 8, 2015
Come away with us... and experience a heartwarming weekend in the historic Vermont countryside. Surround yourself in the early American atmosphere of the Quechee Inn at Marshland Farms filled with antiques, warm fires, cozy quilted beds, and uninterrupted knitting.
Lisa has created a fulfilling weekend getaway retreat just for you. With a carefully planned schedule that allows you to be only as involved as you wish. Lisa and her staff provide ample time to knit, visit with new friends, take walks in the woods of Quechee or go shopping in the town of Woodstock, Vermont. Enjoy meals prepared by the chefs of the Quechee Inn, known for their exquisite country gourmet cuisine, and afternoon knitting workshops surrounded by the beautiful Vermont countryside.
This year’s retreat will include many fun new adventures! More than any Vermont weekend we've ever had, we will be delving into the true essence of life in this quinessential New England location. Rachel Kahn will be leading us in an exploration of her unique and very artistic style of knitting. She will also introduce us to her love of locally raised, spun and dyed yarns when we visit local producers.
Continuing our Vermont immersion we will be dining at Cloudland Farm, an amazing farm-to-table restaurant/farm in Pomfret, VT. By the end of the weekend we will have a Vermont experience to be remembered and may never want to leave.
Our daily schedule will continue to include rejuvenating yoga sessions led by Holly Hofman. Holly has a very fun, gentle approach to yoga that has been well received by those new to yoga while offering more advanced yogis the ability to extend themselves safely under her guidance.
Likewise, Mary Alice Goering, our staff massage therapist will offer a 1 hour massage to every participant in our weekend. With years of experience in private practice as well as being a member of the massage teams for the Athens, Greece and Salt Lake Olympics, the Boston Marathon and the Beach To Beacon in Maine, Mary Alice brings an amazing depth of knowledge and skill to our weekend.
