Knitters around a campfire


"The KnitWit at the Shores Retreat was wonderful. Great food, a beautiful setting, new knitting friends and incredible instructors! I learned a ton and my confidence in my technical abilities has skyrocketed, which makes me eager to cast-on lots of new projects. I can't wait for next year!"  - Heather S.

"A must go event!!! Great teachers, great classes, great friends = a lifetime of wonderful memories."  - Laurie G.

"I want to thank you for a wonderful retreat! It was the first knitting retreat I have ever done. The classes were engaging and the teachers were most helpful and supportive. It was easy to meet new knitters from all over the states and exciting to see what projects were in progress! Most of all, I found the instructors very approachable and candid! I am continuing work on the new techniques I learned; -knitting backwards-not the tinking kind! Looking forward to next time!" - Gwen K.


We will once again be descending upon Searsport Shores Campground in Searsport, Maine. This campground is a magical place for makers. Everything about this location creates a feeling of home for artists. KnitWit at the Shores is open to all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. What brings us together is the love of our craft, and that makes us family.

When you’re not in class you’ll have the opportunity to go kayaking, visit the adorable mid-coast towns in Maine, hike the trails, or hang out in the gardens or with the cashmere goats and sheep. You may choose to relax, visit the marketplace, or just knit in the beautiful outdoor setting.
