Stitching on the RIGI

Cancel all previous date changes. I blame the heat! Most member comments are clear votes for the 6th of July. I apologize if my wishy washyness has caused you any stress. Let's meet up and then take the train together to Arth-Goldau, then up! Bring your needles and food for lunch- sharing encouraged but not required. If you have questions, write Lindsay ([masked]) or Melony ([masked])

Scheduled for July 6th. In case of rain ☔️or snow ❄️an email will be sent to all who RSVP'd. Tip: If you are thinking about getting a Tageskarte for your travels, consider checking with your Gemeinde to see if they have any Gemeinde Tageskarten available for our travel date.

    What a lovely day. Beautiful scenery and lovely company. Another S&B team triumph! Have a great week everyone. I don't know where you will be getting your weather from but the BBC says sunny in Nice so I take it :)

    Friends I'm really sorry, but I'm not 100%, so won't be able to join you. Have a fantastic time & look forward to hearing all about it. Thanks for understanding & see you soon. Hilary x

    Good morning, for the pot luck lunch everyone should bring something to share, but not too much, not feeding an army- 9 of us for today. Also please bring a bowl or plate and your own fork or spoon- like camping! <Leave nothing but footprints behind.>

  • Murielle D.

    Sorry ladies, my sister and I have other plans. Have fun and see you in August!

    Hello, sorry, I have to back out. I hope the weather holds up for you tomorrow!

  • Sabrina

    Ladys, I don't know where you check the weather. But it looks good for tomorrow. Sunny an in the later afternoon there will be thunderstorms.

    July 5

    • Melony

      Ok! We're going! Same plan, 9:45 at Hb to Arth Goldau then up, up and away? Hopefully srf is correct.

      July 5

    • Sabrina

      And if we're earlier back in Zürich thean expected we can have a Caipirinha at Caliente Festival....

    sorry, I'm still in Germany....business trip got extended when I spotted a knitting workshop all weekend :)

    2 · July 5

  • Melony

    Green light! All engines on full, beam me up to the RIGI! I think 28 is too optimistic on the mountain- but dress in layers to stay comfy. See ya'll in the morning.

    2 · July 5

  • Talei

    As the forecast is so bad I wonder if we should look for a new date and go for the usual Starbucks tomorrow?

    1 · July 5

  • Susanne

    Sorry, I'm still having trouble with my hay fever ... I'd better stay at home tomorrow.

    July 5

  • Julia N.

    Even though I'm sure you won't want to do this, but I can host you all at my parents in laws house in the mountains (with a view of the rigi if the weather clears up). We have a lovely little apartment, we can eat lunch there and go on a little walk if there is a break in the weather. I wi be at the apartment this weekend anyways. It's in emmetten, and takes about two hours to reach from zurich hb- which is the catch. I'm just putting it out there, even though it's very far and impractical.

    July 5

    • Julia N.

      If you guys can carpool, it's only an hour drive from zurich.

      July 5

  • Kathrin

    Sorry girls, something came in the way, can't come.

    July 5

    • Melony

      I think the mountain will be too dangerous tomorrow anyway.

      July 5

  • Claudia Pinto P.

    Yes, the forecast is dreadful. It will be raining everywhere! It's perfect for watching movies, eat popcorn and knit ;)

    July 5

  • Melony

    Ladies,
    The weather forecast looks terrible. Who has a brilliant idea what we can do instead?

    July 5

  • Melony

    Everyone cross your fingers for a good day on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for an alternate plan- please post in comments. Thanks

    July 3

  • Melony

    Hello ladies, I've been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for the RIGI, it doesn't look good for Sunday right now, hopefully it will improve! This one day sun, next day rain crap we've been having is not making me happy.

    July 3

  • Julia N.

    I might come, I'm getting all of my wisdom teeth out three days before!

    June 11

  • Talei

    Any idea when the train gets to Arth-Goldau as I will meet you there. Also which Rigi station as there seem to be lots!

    July 2

    • Melony

      Update on travel: meeting at HB 9:45, departing track 8 at 10:09, arriving Arth Goldau 10:46- walking to RIGI bahn station and riding to... one stop before the top or the top RIGI Kulm. The short hike is steep but beautiful!
      Any other questions?

      July 2

    • Talei

      Thanks Melony. I will meet you when you get off the train at Arth-Goldau at 10.46

      2 · July 3

  • Claudia Pinto P.

    Good question Talei, I was wondering the same.

    July 2

  • Hilary F.

    See you then! Hilary

  • Louisa B.

    Can't make it anymore :( I have an all day course the day before and I think we'll be ready for some family time. Next year...

    July 1

  • Murielle D.

    I still have to talk with my sister, but if she is willing to come, it's going to be two-for-one! :)

    2 · June 29

  • Sabrina

    I might come. If yes (and of course it depends on the weather) I'll bring my paraglider.

    4 · June 26

  • Rachel W

    Wish I could come! I will be on holiday in Italy, possibly even getting a bit of stitching done :-)

    June 4

  • Kathrin

    I'm in for the 6., though could not make it in case it will be the 22.

  • Talei

    May 11, 2014

  • Helen B
