Sit n' Knit Holiday Party

  • Dec 17, 2006 · 2:00 PM
  • David Copperfield's

Hooray for the holidays! Hooray for Sit n' Knit!

This year we have a new location. A little bigger, a few more knitters. The event fee of $15 covers snacks (vegeterian options included), soda/juice/coffee/tea. (If you'd like an alcoholic beverage, it's a cash bar. They have a huge beer selection and can make yummy cocktails. Go for it! Celebrate!) Event fee also includes 1 raffle ticket. Additional tickets will be available for $2 each. Each event this past year you all have generously donated money to help me with operating costs, thank you so much! Money raised at this party goes to paying our monthly Meetup fee - last year we paid for a whole year! Monthly fee is $19 a month - a little less if you pay for a full year. Let's see if we can do it again!

Also back this year - the gift exchange! Participation is not mandatory, but a heck of a lot more fun if we all participate. The rules are simple:

1. Your item must be handmade by YOU. Either knit or crochet (or both).

2. You can not spend money on this gift, the yarn must be from your stash.

3. A skein of yarn or non-knit item is not acceptable. See rule #1!

All gift exchange participants will put their names in a hat at the party. Each participant will have an opportunity to pull a name from the hat. The name you pull is the person you give your gift to!

More detailed information on both the raffle and the gift exchange are on the message board.

***Event fee is due ASAP! Since the initial deadline has passed and there are still some spaces available, you must pay the event fee the day you RSVP 'yes'. ***

Payment is only accepted by Paypal. Your 'yes' RSVP is not considered final until payment is received. You will receive an email confirmation from me once payment is made. Due to limited number of spots available for this party and a lot of Sit n' Knit members, no payment by the end of the day means you will be removed from the group. Yikes! It is the only way I can make your spot available. I can't change your RSVP. You will of course be welcome to rejoin, all you have to is fill out a profile again. But why go through that? Just pay the event fee or update your RSVP. HOORAY!

Details will be updated often so please check back to the site.

OPEN TO SIT N' KNIT MEMBERS ONLY - PLEASE NO GUESTS.

    It was great! I'm so pleased with myself for making the effort to get out the house and meet such a lovely bunch of women. Anne-Marie is the most adorable pregnant women I've ever seen on the planet!

    This was my first Sit n' Knit event and I had an excellent time! I was so excited to win the "Happy Hooker" raffle, I have been meaning to teach myself how to crochet for a while, now I have absolutely no excuse! Also a big thanks to everyone who helped me start my second attempt at a hat. You ladies (and guys!!) are amazing!

    I had a great time with wonderful women who were very friendly and eager to assist. I didn't make a xmas present this year because I thought that my gift would have been cheezy but next year I will definitely particiate.

    I absolutely loved my time with everyone.

    I had a lot of fun. I was happy to see some familiar faces and new ones too. The Gift Exchange and Raffle are great ideas...since I lack the skill I didn't participate but next time I will. Looking back I should have tried for the 'Happy Hooker' raffle. Too funny!

    This was only my second Sit n' Knit event. At first I was a little shy because I didn't know anyone but as time went on I felt more comfortable. The gift exchange was alot of fun! As a beginner it's nice to see what kind of projects I can strive to knit in the future. I look forward to more great events like this!

    It was even better than last year, and last year REALLY ROCKED! It's always a totally wonderful crowd, with lots of old and new faces, and I totally love getting to meet lots of great new friends to "sit'n'knit" with! Anne-Marie is the best ever! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    So much fun! I am always blown away by how much fun a knitting party can be. The gift exchange was fantastic! 27 people participated. Thank you to all who bought raffle tickets. We raised enough money to pay for another year of Meetup.com use. WOOOOO HOOOO! Y'all rock. Seriously. I love Sit n' Knit!

    I had a great time! It was very well-organized, and the fun little extras (raffle, gift exchange, cookies) were a nice touch.
