party friday, dec 12th – save the children

It’s officially the holiday season!

Join us for a PARTY and POP-UP Jewelry Sale

Friday, December 12th

5:00-7:30 pm

We’ll be getting in the holiday spirit with music, wine, nibbles, gift ideas, prizes and a storewide 10% discount!

 

We’re partnering with Heidi from Hands Occupied and supporting Save the Children, to help make the world a better place for children this holiday season.

December 12 is National Christmas Sweater Day, and Save the Children wants the world to wear a sweater and donate $5 to help fund their important work with kids around the world.

If you have a hand-knit or crochet sweater, you should wear it!   Or just wear any sweater (regular, festive, ugly or otherwise).

 

POP-UP SHOP

Need some bling?

We’ve invited our friend, Luisa, to bring her jewelry and accessories to our Party.  So you’ll get some easy holiday shopping done.

fun sparkle & snowflake bracelets

 

 

If you’re knitting or crocheting your holiday gifts, we can help you choose a project and get you started.

How about one of these great new staff designs by Maura and Jen?

Clementine Cashmere Mitts

 

Cable & Seed Stitch Cowl

 

If you’re pressed for time, you can whip up this cowl in an evening.  We’ll provide the bulky yarn, big needles, and a simple free pattern.

 

Want to knit a mini sweater to use as an ornament, gift topper or fun decoration.  We can show you how.

 

Need to buy a gift for a crafter (or yourself!)?  We can help with that too.

Here are some of our favorite gift ideas.

If you can’t decide, there’s always a Nina Gift Card.

 

We’ve got lots planned for a festive evening!

Even a fun Photo Booth!

And Ugly Sweater Cookie Decorating!

So let’s come together and party for a good cause!

Save the Children does amazing work for children all over the world.  Their efforts include working to stem the ebola crisis in Africa, as well as advocacy and policy work to help create laws designed to protect children.

We’ll be accepting $5 donations for Save the Children at the PARTY, but if you can’t attend, you can still donate here.

Hope to see you December 12th!

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
