Your favorite holiday party is back! The mod-elves have been busy, and we're ready for our best, most spectacular Knitmas yet! 

IMPORTANT: To make Knitmas its most fabulous, this event is being limited to 30 guests. After 30 are signed up, there will be a waiting list. You must RSVP to this event, and you must keep your RSVP current. If you realize you won't be able to make it, please update your RSVP so someone on the waiting list can go in your place. Now back to the fun details ...

The Great Skein will be bringing gifts, and there will be raffle prizes throughout the evening. We'll be playing notions bingo (so bring your notions bag!), and we're bringing back the white elephant swap. 

If you'd like to participate in the swap (it's not required), please bring a wrapped gift with you (new or re-gifted, keep it around $10). The gift doesn't have to be knitting- or crochet-related, but it should at least be crafty-related.

We're so excited to be bringing Knitmas back as our way to celebrate the holidays and say, "Hey, thanks for being a CKU member!" We can't wait to see you all there!

A little bit about the venue and our policies:

This family-owned restaurant has a fully stocked bar and hearty dinner menu of delicious burgers, pastas, salads, and more. When you come in, take a right and head straight to the back -- we'll be in the party room at a nice long table.

Leona's, just around the corner from the Belmont Red/Brown/Purple Line stop at Belmont and Sheffield. If you're driving, there are meters outside on Sheffield, and parking usually isn't a problem.

As always, we will be collecting the $1 meetup fee, and we ask as a courtesy to our venues that you order something -- even if it’s just a coffee -- while we use their space.

    What if we don't have a notions bag? Or say...we need a nap very badly and show up a little late?

    What's a notions bag? :/

      it's the bag you keep all of your stitch markers, post-it notes, pens, tapestry needles, measuring tape, and anything else that's small and handy for knitting or crochet.

    Has anyone thought about doing either a toy or food drive as part of the party?

      That's a really great idea! With Knitmas approaching, I don't think we can pull it off this year, but if you would like, we can contact you when we start planning the next one so you can organize a drive.
