EVENT : SATURNALIA 2018 Countess Ablaze

Our annual Saturnalia Party is back for its fourth year and this time we are doing it differently on Saturday 1st December!

During the day, the studio in Manchester's Northern Quarter will be open where you can buy yarn and fibre not only from us but also from a couple of vendors we've invited as pop up shops. This event is free and open to everybody.

During the evening, we shall be hosting our ever successful party for knitters and crocheters at Castlefield Rooms, 18-20 Castle Street, Manchester, M3 4LZ. This is a ticketed event at £35 each and includes a festive BBQ and a glass of wine or soft drink upon arrival.

We begin at 5:30 pm and end when the Countess is sobbing in the corner after too many cocktails at 1 am, undoubtedly wearing something ridiculous (last year was Hipster Santa with a beard and man bun; it's best not to question such things).

We can accommodate ALL food allergies and intolerances and yarn won't be available to buy in the evening.

If you wish to come alone, please please do! Many people come to our parties alone and we bond very quickly over our love of stitching. If you're coming alone and you're nervous, let me know in advance so we can ease you in and introduce you to people we know who are calming influences.

Please note that tickets are bought via Eventbrite (because we're efficient and they automatically do the guest lists for us). Full details about accessibility are on the event page.
