Rhinebeck is one of those events you HEAR about as a knitter! It was the talk of my knitting friends every fall. It’s an incredible weekend: the events, the friends, the knitwear, the vendors, the food, the scenery, and the cute Airbnb’s! Seriously every part of the experience is great! For those of you going, here are the details. For those of you not joining us, there are online shopping opportunities for you!
When talking about Rhinebeck, you need to remember folks are talking about a whole weekend of events in and around the Hudson Valley!
