The Blue Shutters wanted to let its Good Morning Gloucester friends know about a cool new event planned for early next month. On April 1-3, we’ll be welcoming those folks who like to "sit and stitch" with our first-ever Knitters Weekend. When we started to think about ways to make this a special getaway for our guests that weekend, little did we know that we’d find an author who wrote knitting mysteries….and that these stories were set right here on Cape Ann! Many of you have learned about Sally Goldenbaum and her Seaside Mystery series right here at Good Morning Gloucester. On that weekend, our guests can check our these books — and take home signed copies. We also were turned on to the folks at the Coveted Yarn, and discovered an amazing knitters heaven right here in Gloucester. Even if those of us not into knitting, were impressed with this yarn shop, located just a few minutes from the Blue Shutters. We chatted with the owner, Rob, who gave us some ideas for our Knitters Weekend — he has agreed to let us organize a "field trip" to the Coveted Yarn on that Saturday April 2, where our guests can check out their extraordinary selection of yarn and other knitting items. And the Coveted Yarn has graciously offered a discount for any guests who stay with us that weekend. There’ll be other treats for those who join us for the Knitters Weekend — beginning with the opportunity to work on that knitting project or meet others who love to knit (or want to learn) while enjoying the most awesome views of Good Harbor Beach from our comfy sofas. Guests can stay one or two nights — we’re offering special discounts for groups and for two-day stays that weekend. Call or email us for more information — and please pass this news along to those knitting lovers you know.
