Knit the River Cruise

September Cruise Cancelled --- Ticket Holders Read Below. 

Wow, We can't believe it's been almost 6 months of this Covid crisis. When we shut down in March, we thought it would be for a few weeks and then we would be back to normal. Little did we know that every month would bring a different challenge. 

We had hoped that we would not have to cancel our September cruise, but we have decided that it's the best thing for us to do. It is not what we want, but it is the best decision for the safety of our customers, and us. If the weather is nice, there would be ample room to be socially distant on the boat, but if it rains, we would all have to be indoors. We just don't think that is the safest thing at this point and aren't willing to take the chance.

So now, if you have purchased a ticket, the ball is in your court. You can do "whatever floats your boat"...see what I did there:)

1. Move the ticket/s to our 2021 cruises, either June or September and get a $10 gift card per ticket to use immediately. What a fun celebration our 2021 cruises will be!
2. Store Credit 
3. Full Refund

The choice is yours. Just reply to this email and let me know how you want to proceed. Dates for the 2021 cruises are listed above.

Thanks for all of your support during this crazy time. We hope this email finds you and all you love doing ok.

we hope you'll be able to join us on the river in 2021! Our 5th year of Knit the River cruises! We'll be celebrating!! 

We are not selling tickets yet, but don't fear! We'll give you plenty of time to sign up when the time comens.

We are chartering a couple of boats on the beautiful St. Croix and we hope you'll join us for a fun, casual afternoon or evening with other fiber junkies.

Bring your knitting or crochet project or your spinning wheel and join us on the river!

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.


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.
