Celebrate like it is 1859! Madame Defarge is our knitting and craft night mascot – and one of Charles Dickens’ most memorable characters. We’ll serve up Dickensian realness at this gathering with a touch of steamed pudding Victoriana! A chance to wish the best of the season to other local crafters – and work on a last minute project or two; bring any favored, portable project to work on while we nibble, sip and laugh.

This is our fifth annual Present Knits workshop – a series of one-night classes that focuses on a chic and simple project that you can knit up in a couple evenings – if you do your homework. Each of our teachers will be bringing a favorite pattern to their night of Present Knits; and all of our teachers will be there in case you have questions about other projects you’re working on.
