3rd Annual Sit n' Knit Holiday Party

  • Dec 16, 2007 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Each year our holiday party gets a little bigger and a little better. This year is no exception! So put on your handknit party socks and kick up your heels. IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE!!! The event fee of $25 covers appetizers (vegeterian options included), soda/juice/coffee/tea/booze. Yes, you read that correctly. Booze. As in open bar. SHAZAMM! KNITTING PAR-TAY! 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 because it is such a hit- 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.

Now the fine print:

***Event fee is due by 8pm, SUNDAY DEC 9***

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 on Dec 9 means I cancel your RSVP. Yikes! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING A KNITTING/CROCHETING GUEST - you are responsible for advanced payment for your guest. I will not be accepting payment at the door.

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

    The event was A-MAZ-ING!!!! I had so much fun. I especially like my gift that I recieved, and my swap recipient was ecstatic as well. We have to have another party before the next winter holiday season. I can't wait a whole year to have this much fun again.

    Anne Marie is always so thoughtful when putting together this spectacular event. Come to think of it this is my anniversary since the first time I ever came to a sit and knit was the christmas party 2 years ago.
