Lolodidit Gathering April 2023
Yes! We are finally meeting in person! I can't wait!! Read below for all of the details.
DATES: April 13 - 16, 2023
PLACE: The Origin Hotel in Lexington, KY
The Origin Hotel is gorgeous! It's also at a really nice shopping center with walking access to restaurants, outside space, and shopping. It's 15 minutes away from the Airport, and about 20 minutes from the center of Downtown Lexington.
Lunch and dinner is on your own, but there are tons of options that are walkable or close by. There is also a Starbucks and Whole Foods in the same shopping center the hotel is in.
This is super casual! Our purpose is to meet each other, hang out, knit together, and I'll be setting up "shop!"
We will have a large conference room booked for all day Friday and Saturday. You can come and go as you please.
I plan on having a gathering t-shirt, which you can order in advance. And a gathering exclusive colorway, which I'll also have a pre-order and bring more with me.
After doing a lot of numbers crunching, and options to make this a really nice weekend, but not too much fuss, the cost here covers the conference room, chairs and tables, breakfast, and snacks!
This is non-refundable.
Last day to check out will be Nov 30, 2022.
BOOK YOUR ROOM:

The hotel is offering a discount to our guests, with a block of rooms. $169/night for 2 queen beds. You can book your own whenever you'd like. Book as soon as you can! They do have free cancellation, according to their website, just in case you can't come last minute.
All booking and customer service about the hotel room is through the hotel, not through me. Though I would love to know your experience, for future potential gatherings.
Check with others through MN to get your roommates if you want to share a room with someone.
Thursday April 13
Arrive! If you need a ride from the Bluegrass Airport in Lexington, let us know in MN. There are plenty of people driving who have volunteered to pick up if you don't want to rent a car. Uber/Lyft are also great options!
We are planning on making reservations for dinner at 6pm Thursday night. Details will be discussed in March within MN.
Friday and Saturday April 14-15
Join us in the conference room! I will have our "shop" set up throughout the morning, and of course you can chill and knit together.
Breakfast is served! We will have a buffet set up with a beautiful breakfast spread.
Warm morning pastries, seasonal fruit salad, yogurt parfaits with berries & house made granola, warm biscuits with sausage gravy, breakfast potatoes, scrambled eggs, chicken & waffles, country ham....etc.
There will be chairs set up, tables, and plenty of space to knit and enjoy each other!
At lunch time there will also be snack and drinks provided, so you don't have to do lunch out if you don't want. You can pick up food at the local restaurants and bring it back, or walk across to Whole Foods and pick up your favorites. I'm sure people will all plan their own thing ahead of time in MN.
Dinner will be planned, with reservations! Of course, it's also optional! But, I'd encourage you to join us and plan for the expense. Jocelyn is leading the charge of planning out restaurant options and getting together price ranges and we will have a vote.
After dinner, you're on your own!
Sunday April 16
So sad! Headed back home!! Everything for this day is on your own. Find your friends and plan to go out to breakfast. Make sure you have arranged ahead of time with people who have cars to get dropped back off at the airport, etc.
