Murder Mystery Knitting Weekend with Patty Lyons - Registration is Open!

*** Sold out!  If you would like to be on a waiting list in case spaces open up, please send an email to ***

Join us for a knitting-filled murder mystery weekend in Gettysburg, PA from March 1st to 3rd, 2024!  Our Founder, Cheryl, will be joined at the *skein of the crime* by Patty Lyons (yes, that Patty Lyons!) to host you for the knitting portion of a weekend that requires both your sleuthing and knitting skills.  We’ll be at the Gettysburg Hotel, in Gettysburg, PA, for a murder mystery weekend; the murder mystery is for everyone (not just knitters).  For knitters (and crocheters!), we'll be adding on plenty of fun, swag, and knitting time.

The murder mystery kicks off Friday, March 1st, at cocktail hour, and the murderer is revealed on Sunday, March 3rd during breakfast (we’ll have a farewell lunch on Sunday just for knitters – see below!).  The Murder Mystery Weekend package at the Gettysburg Hotel includes two nights hotel, cocktail hour with heavy appetizers on Friday, three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday, as well as the murder mystery entertainment.  The price is based on the level of room you select – all of the information is available on the Murder Mystery Weekend Gettysburg Hotel web page.  You must also reserve your room and murder mystery package with the Gettysburg Hotel, regardless of whether you are a knitter or not.  The hotel has a $150 non-refundable deposit for the Murder Mystery Weekend package, so we recommend booking your Knitting Detective Package with us first.  

In addition to the above, knitters who purchase the “Knitting Detective” Package through Row House will also get the following:

  • Plenty of time in our private knitters' room to connect with other Knitting Detectives and Patty Lyons (and knit!)
  • Gift bag, which includes a kit of Patty Lyons' Affiknity Hat with Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Worsted in your choice of color, and other goodies
  • Meet and Greet and Knit on Friday night after the cocktail hour, a casual space and time to meet the other Knitting Detectives
  • An Affiknity Hat class with Patty Lyons filled with some of her special tips and tricks
  • Murder Board Knit-a-long – just like the professionals, we’ll assemble for a private session to work through the suspects and the clues to make progress on solving the case – while knitting!
  • A Frog It or Fix It session - do you have a project in *time out* and you'd like help deciding what its punishment should be?  Bring your project and share it with the group.
  • Farewell lunch – after the live murder mystery entertainment has concluded, we’ll assemble for one last time for a light lunch Sunday and some final knitting time before people head home.

To join us:

1)  Starting November 15th, you can purchase your “Knitting Detective” Package at (here's the link!).  The package will be live starting at Noon Eastern Time on November 15th.  The Knitting Detective Package will be $595.00, with an early bird registration price of $545.00 available from November 15th to December 1st.

2)  Thenyou’ll need to reserve a room at the Gettysburg Hotel to ensure that you have the hotel/meals/murder mystery entertainment to join us for the weekend. You must book both packages to join us.

You MUST call the hotel directly for the Murder Mystery weekend package. Do NOT book directly online with the hotel.
When I called to book the package, a recording said you could book a room directly so I did. Unfortunately, now I have a room and no mystery package, but I do have the knitting package which I booked first, so not sure how that’s all going to work (and would appreciate a private reply.)

Christine - November 10, 2023

Greetings from Ohio. I am interested in the Murder Mystery weekend but confused about the price. Is the cost $595 for the knitting detective package plus the $499 cost to the Murder Mystery group? Total of $1084 for the two night weekend? If my non-knitting spouse comes along, it is an additional $499. Have I gotten this correct? Thank you for your consideration. Regards, Chris
