Join us at TOURISTS in the Berkshires this winter for our first-ever weekend-long knitting retreat in partnership with Purl Soho, a modern supply store in New York City known for their innovative designs and pure, natural fibers.
Meet a community of fellow knitters and cozy up around our lodge fireplace and other nooks while you learn tips and tricks for all skill levels. Opportunities for inspiration throughout the weekend abound, from nature walks on the surrounding trails to a guided tour of the internationally-acclaimed MASS MoCA and many more surprises. All skill levels are welcome.
