Cool! Let's make it a get-together then!

All we need to do is decide where we want to stay. Asheville should be gorgeous that time of year, with beautiful fall leaves, so we'd better reserve rooms NOW, before they fill up!

Here is the main website for the Western NC AG Center.
http://www.ncagr.com/markets/facilit...tern/index.htm

Their address is posted on that site, for looking up driving directions. (1301 Fanning Bridge Rd, Fletcher, NC)

Here is the Google Map I looked up for that address.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...1157&z=13&om=1

Fletcher is the place we might want to look for accomodations, just to make travel easy. There is a small airport nearby - I'm not sure if it lands big planes. (Asheville Regional Airport) If anyone flies in, they could probably take a small plane to that spot.

Here is a map I just detailed that shows the place where SAFF is held:

If you have lots of bucks, and want a VERY NICE room, this place looks FANCY-SCHMANCY!!! http://www.chateauonthemountain.com/

If you want to make it a get-away with your SO, this place fits the bill. http://www.bbonline.com/nc/tudorhouse/index.html

Here are some more B&B's for that area:
http://www.bbonline.com/nc/fletcher.html

If you want to bring your dog(s), here's a place you can stay together: http://www.barkwells.com/

Budget-minded folks (like me) will want to stay at the Days Inn or Econo Lodge or Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn

Classes cost $10 per hour. So if your class is 2 hours, it's $20. If it's 1.5 hours, it's $15. Sometimes, there is an additional fee for materials.

Here's the workshop listing:

I will certainly be there. My family and I divide our time between Cullowhee NC, primarily, and Asheville, secondarily. We are house-hunting in Asheville right now. By October we should be reasonably settled in to something quasi-permanent.

I'm sort of new to the forum....what exactly would constitute a KH get-together during this event?

Welcome, MrsDavis3!

I'm not sure what our get-together will involve, but I'm sure we'll think of something cool, with all us fun KHers involved in the planning!

I'm just looking forward to seeing everyone, and sitting and knitting together! Maybe we can find a big room at a hotel where we can congregate!

Very tempting! I have a sister who lives in Fletcher so may be a good excuse to visit Just a little concerned that I am new enough to knitting that LYSs still overwhelm and confuse me right now - can't imagine dealing with everything there! Might enjoy it more if I waited until next year ? I'll have to think about this one...
