After Hours event! $120 WITH ENORMOUS FREKN AWESOME SWAG BAG NOT AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC SWAG BAG INCLUDED
From Samantha herself: “This year’s event is a little sweary and entitled: “Get Your Shit Together,” so you'll need to leave your pearls at home and out of reach of clutching. I plan on making everyone who attends play Cards Against Humanity with Keith and I, so be warned.
"Susan plans on having some wine and some sort of something that we can stuff our faces with while we catch up with each other and pet all the yarns! Yaaas! I'll be dying up some sweary skeins that will only be available to the after hours event ticket holders.
"This time around the After Hours event price includes some serious swag! Without spoiling everything I can tell you that the swag will include MORE than one skein of yarn, there will be one full skein and then some! Hell yes! Swag also includes a super heavy and large snarky canvas bag that I paid out the ass for, there are also 4 other sweary items in the bag along with some snacks & treats because it's not a party without snack time. Space is limited for the After Hours party so Get Your Shit Together and grab a ticket and secure your spot! Squueee!”
