We are chartering a paddle boat on the beautiful St. Croix River and we hope you'll join us for an fun, casual afternoon with other fiber junkies.
Bring your knitting or crochet project or your spinning wheel and join us on the river!
September 17th, 2017
Cruise time from 12:00 - 2:30
Boarding begins at 11:30
The boat leaves at noon promptly. It does not wait for anyone...trust us, come early!!
Darn Knit Anyway will be open at 9am if you want to come early and do a little shopping. The shop will close at 11:45 so all of us can enjoy the river with you. We'll reopen as soon as the boat docks and we'll be open until 7pm if you want to to swing in and check out all the new fall yarns. The shop is jammed full of new stuff!
The $42 ticket price includes the 2.5 hour river cruise, lunch, lots of door prize drawings and endless conversations with folks that are just as passionate about fiber as you are. It's priceless when you think about it!
The boat is beautiful, with many seating choices.
The lower level is fully enclosed with ribbon windows all around. It has plenty of furniture for comfortable lounge knitting. The next level is the banquet area. With many larger banquet tables and chairs. The next level up is open to the elements. The back is covered for a bit more protection from the weather. The top deck is completely open. You are sure to find a spot to your liking.
The boat dock is directly to the south of our building. Just a few steps from our side door.
If you are coming from the cities on Hwy 36, or from Hwy 94, you will be coming north on Hwy 95 (main street). As you get into town, just before you get to our building, on the river side of the road, you will see a metal building with the name St. Croix Boat and Packet. Turn right just past the building.
Follow the St. Croix Boat & Packet parking signs to free parking, or park for $5 all day in the parking lot.
Luncheon meal includes: deli sliced ham, turkey breast, roast beef, salami, pepperoni and deli cheeses served with fresh bakery rolls and sandwich fixings. Accompanied by pasta salad, potato salad, seasonal fresh fruit and cookies!
The small print...
The boat sails rain or shine so no refunds will be given for inclement weather, there is plenty of indoor seating on the boat. No coupons or discounts apply to this item
There won't be a Great American Wool Festival this year, so come join us at this event instead!!
