... relax . renew . connect ... with Trips for Knitters!

We're retiring! Due to the rising cost of travel, the impact of travel on climate change, age, and financial losses related to the pandemic, Trips for Knitters is retiring. After years of providing quality knitting events in special places, this was a difficult but practical decision.

An enormous, heartfelt THANK YOU to those who did get a chance to travel with Trips for Knitters. The unique experiences and connections with others provide us with wonderful memories to enjoy … we have some great ones!

June 2021

Trips for Knitters brings groups of knitters together for knitting retreats in special locations while enjoying all the settings have to offer. Natural beauty, great food, inspiring architecture and cultural appeal are a must. On top of that, Trips for Knitters plans time to relax and enjoy the company of other knitters.
