I was given permission to post this information to my blog in hopes of getting the word out about what should be a FABULOUS weekend! The following is from the flier:

Friday Evening-Sunday Noon
June 8-10, 2007 and/or September 21-23, 2007
$195 per person, meals included

Knitter are taking over the entire 60 acres of beautiful Wiawaka Holiday House, a National Register Historic Place near Lake George Village, NY. Our location was once owned by the Trask family of Saratoga's Yaddo fame and was established 100 years ago to provide affordable vacations for women in the textile industry of Troy & Cohoes , NY. Funds from the retreat will support the Wiawaka Scholarship Fund to enable all working women an affordable vacation.

Enjoy the scenic beauty of the 1500 feet of Lake George frontage, with boat house and all of the property at our exclusive disposal. Knit in peace, or join friends old and new.

For more information on Wiawaka's fabulous history as a National Park Service "Place Where Women Made History" visit www DOT wiawaka DOT org. A $100 nonrefundable deposit is required. Lodging is primarily single rooms--we are seeking individuals willing to share rooms with 2 single beds. Reserve early for full room & date selection--some rooms are heated only by your knitted warmth!

I omitted Katherine's phone number and address, however you can email her when you are ready to reserve.

I wanted to include some of our Lake George photos, but blogger wasn't cooperating. Maybe next time!
