Maine Knitting Cruises
We will be sailing from Friday, June 19 to Monday, June 22 (everyone must be aboard on the evening of Thursday, June 18). Non-knitters are welcome - there's plenty to do and see, even if you don't knit! We'll explore the small islands, have a lobster bake on the beach and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery around Penobscot Bay.
Our guest instructor will be well-known designer Casapinka. You'll receive yarn and a pattern for our project.
You must be able to climb up and down at least 4 steps and to step in and out of the boat.
This end-of-the-season cruise is one of the best! Discover the pleasures of Maine just as Sweater Weather begins. Once again, you must be on board on the evening of Sunday, September 20. This will be our last cruise with the crew of the J&E Riggin. You won't want to miss this amazing experience.
Still have a question? The lovely people at the J&E Riggin have kindly prepared this FAQ page, but please feel free to send a note if you still need an answer.
