Welcome to the WEBS Knitting Retreat! We are happy to have you join us in May to celebrate yarn, take some great classes, and enjoy food, friends, and our beautiful Pioneer Valley. You’ll find registration information below.
Your registration fee covers all your meals from Thursday’s Welcome Dinner through Sunday brunch with Keynote Speaker Patty Lyons, two full days of classes on Friday and Saturday, and transportation to WEBS for an After-Hours Shopping Spree with owners Steve and Kathy Elkins. There will be late-night knitting get-togethers with snacks, desserts, and cocktails, plenty of time to meet up with friends or make new knitting buddies, creative meals, and lots of yarn to see, feel, and buy. Registration is limited to 120 peoples.

How to Register
Step 1: Register for the Retreat
To complete your registration click the Register Now button above. Registration is only accepted online and will open to the general public at 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 17. A minimum $100.00 deposit, payable online by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express, is required to complete your registration. You may either pay this $100.00 deposit or you may pay your full balance due. If you decide to pay only the $100.00 deposit, you may return to this page to submit additional payments by card, or follow the emailed instructions contained in your registration confirmation to pay by check. All registrations must be paid in full by the close of business on March 15, 2019.
Registration is limited to 120 attendees and is expected to fill fast, so early registration is strongly encouraged. To expedite your registration we also recommend each attendee registers themselves using their own account - registering multiple people may mean that capacity is reached before you can finish registering yourself and all of your friends. If capacity has been met by the time you try to register, you will automatically be prompted to add yourself to the waitlist using this online form. For the fall retreats over 50 people were ultimately added to the Retreat from the waitlist, so it is in your best interest to place yourself on it! Interested attendees will be moved off of the waitlist if registered guests cancel, and will be moved off of the waitlist on a first come, first served, basis, depending on the date and time the waitlist request was received. Those added to the waitlist will be contacted by phone and email if a space opens.
Step 2: Submit Your Class Preferences
On Wednesday, February 13, registered attendees will be able to sign up for classes by returning to this page, logging back in, and entering the first and second class choices for both Friday and Saturday. Detailed instructions will be emailed to registered attendees in mid-February. Click the "Class Description" tabs above to learn more about the classes being offered!
