In pictures: the S&B London Christmas Party Yarnorama 2009
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on December 15, 2009
Christmas is a time for knitting like crazy, screaming at people to shhhhhh because you are counting rows because this knit has to be finished in two weeks’ time and staring with horror at the calendar as the day between your Christmas knitting and the big day get nearer and nearer.
Lucky for Stitch and Bitch Londoners it’s also a time of year for the S&B London Christmas Party and this year we did our best to make it a Yarnorama worth coming along to.
Raising over £300 for the Treasure Trove charity we spent the evening knitting, exchanging some heavenly bits of handmade in our Secret Santa and eating, drinking and being knitty. It was Christmas with a woolly flare.
If you missed it you can have a virtual S&B London Christmas Yarnorama along with us by looking at the pictures and wishing really really hard that you were there.
Some Really Rather Marvellous Raffle Prizes:
Some stitched and rather swish Secret Santa swaps:
Before the raffle Emma told us a little about the charity we were raising money for. Cue all of us feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
The raffle begins. A selection of our prize winners as we had 27 prizes this year:
And we said goodbye to the lovely Startitis and it all got a bit emotional. :*(
There were over 70 photos taken at the party so if you can’t see yourself here hop along to our set on Flickr and hunt yourself down there.
The Stitchettes would like to thanks all the lovely Yarn Sellers and Magazines mentioned here who donated prizes to the Really Rather Marvellous Raffle and to our sponsors Debonnaire, Yarn Box and KAL Media. We heart you all. You helped us raise loads of money for a good cause and put some smiles on our lovely stitchers.
Thanks also to everyone who attended and the shops who gave vouchers and discounts too.
See you in the New Year as the woolly Godzilla that is S&B London stomps across 2010 roaring “Submit to the Knit” to the non-knitting masses till they pick up sticks and join us.
