WELCOME!

We’re delighted you’ll be joining us in Hudson, NY, as we inaugurate this new single-day version of our Knitting with Company Retreats. As retreat day draws closer, we’ll be sending more information specifically about your day with us; in the meantime here’s a taste of what we have in store for you and some information that may be helpful as you begin to plan your visit to Hudson.

 

THE DAY WITH COMPANY

When
Saturday, September 9, 2017
from 9 am to 5 pm

Where
3rd Floor Gallery — 341 Warren Street — between 3rd and 4th Streets
The 3rd Floor Gallery is an open, light-filled space that will be furnished with tables and chairs. Please note that it is on the 3rd floor of the building and that it is accessible only by stairs, so be prepared to walk up two flights.

What the day will look like
9 am: A continental breakfast from Talbott & Arding (our caterer for the day) will greet you when you arrive and the pop-up shop will be open.
9:30 am: Welcome from Julie, Catherine and Sarah.
9:45 am to 12:30 pm: Knitting, laughter, stories, help from your hosts (should you need any).
12:30 to 1:30 pm: lunch.
1:30 to 2:30 pm: panel discussion of all things knitting featuring Julie, Catherine and Sarah — more about this in a later email.
2:30 to 5 pm: more knitting, laughter, stories and help; interrupted about 3:30 for coffee, tea and snacks.

What to bring
Bring a project that’s well underway or one you’re just starting. We’d be thrilled to see one of our designs on your needles and happy to answer any questions you may have about it or help you with any unfamiliar techniques or difficult pattern instructions. If you’re stuck and need some inspiration for a new project, we’ll be delighted to offer that as well.

What you’ll find in the pop-up shop
Our pop-up will be small, but well-curated. We’ll have a few things you haven’t seen and a few that are familiar. There’ll be yarn to support the designs we’ll be featuring, notions and needles from Catherine’s regular inventory, and some surprises from a few friends who have graciously accepted to help stock our shelves. 

Getting to Hudson
Hudson is located on the east side of the Hudson River, 120 miles north of New York City, 45 miles south of Albany and 160 miles west of Boston.

By car: 
From the south via the Taconic Parkway or the New York State Thruway; from the north via the New York State Thruway or Rte. 9; from the east via the Massachusetts Turnpike to the Berkshire Spur of the New York State Thruway to the Taconic State Parkway to Rte. 82 to Rte. 9. Please consult Google Maps or your preferred navigation app for specific directions.

Parking: 
On-street metered parking is enforced 9 am - 5 pm Monday through Saturday; meters are $.25 per hour and take only quarters. City parking lots are $.25 per hour, but free on weekends. Warren Street is metered above 3rd Street, not metered between 3rd and Front Streets. Parking on Union and Columbia Streets (parallel to Warren and on either side of it) is not metered.

If you plan to stay overnight, the city enforces alternate side of the street parking. Please ask your host for more information.

By train: 
Amtrak’s Northeast Regional trains provide service to and from Hudson daily on an almost hourly schedule from Penn Station, New York City. Travel time is two hours.

Train travel from Boston is more complicated and requires traveling first to New York City/Penn Station and then from Penn Station to Hudson.

From the train station to 3rd Floor Gallery:
With the Amtrak station behind you, walk to the left up Front Street to Warren Street; turn right onto Warren Street and continue up Warren. 3rd Floor Gallery will be on your right, between 3rd and 4th Streets.

By plane:
The nearest airport is Albany International Airport, served by American, Delta and United Airlines.
