2018 Newport Knitting Retreat

The perfect gift for yourself….

We are excited to announce the 2018
Newport Knitting Retreat

Hosted by The Mermaid’s Purl

How tremendous does 3 days of knitting, learning, sharing stories, enjoying great food and relaxing sound?
We invite you to the luxurious Gurney’s Hotel of  Newport for the evenings of March 2 & 3, 2018.


Gurney’s Hotel and Spa is an icon of the Newport skyline, located on Goat Island. Perched along the edge of  Newport harbor, it has spectacular water views from every room. The entire facility has recently been renovated from top to bottom.


This year we are joined by Rhode Island native Lori Versaci of Versaci Knits.

Lori’s designs span the spectrum of inspiration with socks, cowls, sweaters and shawls – all made with beautiful yarns, interesting techniques and careful instruction. 



Pamper yourself!  There are two all inclusive retreat packages available.  
If you share a room, $525 per person.
$695 for a single room.
Price is per person and includes TWO different knitting workshops with Lori, access to our private knitting room, dinner for both nights and breakfasts for both mornings.
We are still working on a few other details, so expect even more fun activities for the weekend. It’s going to be an exceptionally good time.
