Cel-e-bra-tion, come on! It's time to celebrate & have a good time.

January's SBS clubs are all about celebrating. Celebrating the start of a new year, new beginnings, knitting, life, you, family, friends, the every day, everything.

The chosen bag for this month is the Take A-long Tote.  This is my ultimate knitters tote bag.  It features a zippered front pocket and a clear vinyl slip pocket on the back that's perfect for holding your patten.  It not only makes it easy to know what project is inside the bag but makes the pattern easy to read as you knit.

The yarn color will be dyed on my Evergreen base - 75/25 SW Merino/Nylon fingering weight.

Here are the clues:

Clue #1:

Here we come a-wassailing

Among the leaves so green.

These cocktails are alcohol-free

This bag a knitters dream.


Clue #2:

Love & joy come to you

And to you your wassail too.

Rings of orange & lemon afloat.

This cider drink will rock your boat.


Clue #3:

Stir the eggnog; lift the toddy.

Happy New Year everybody!


Bonus Clue:

 This one's on me.


What is the Secret Bag Society?

The 2020 Secret Bag Society is a fun monthly mystery club.  It runs from November 2019 - October 2020.  Clubs go on sale on the 15th of every month and close on the 25th.  Clubs ship approximately on the 10th of the following month or when they are completed.

Each month is a different "mystery".  I will pick fabrics, dye yarn, and select candle scents all based on that month's theme.  I will also choose a different bag style and yarn base that I think best compliments that months chosen fabrics and yarn color.  Every month I will post a collage image with clues about that month's club along with information on the chosen bag style and yarn base.  If you're a subscriber to my email list you will get this information first but it will also be available on my blog, Instagram and Facebook.  While you won't know exactly what the bag will look like or the yarn color you will have some idea based on the clues and collage photo.  But it will all be a surprise when your package arrives in the mail.  It is called the Secret Bag Society after all.

There will be 5 club options to choose from each month.

  • Just the Facts Bag Club - Includes a bag only.
  • It's In The DNA Bag + Yarn Club - Includes a bag and a skein of yarn dyed in an exclusive colorway.
  • On the Scent Trail Bag + Candle Club - Includes a bag and a scented soy candle.
  • Guilty as Charged Bag + Yarn + Candle Club - Includes a bag, a skein of yarn dyed in an exclusive colorway, and a scented soy candle.
  • Suspect Pool Yarn + Candle Club - Includes a skein of yarn dyed in an exclusive colorway and a scented soy candle.

As a bonus, if you purchase 8 clubs (any combination thereof) you will receive a free exclusive project bag. You must place an order for 8 of the 12 months for any  one of the club options to be eligible for the free bonus bag.  You can purchase any combination and do not have to purchase the same club each month.  So mix it up and have fun.  Choose the Suspect Pool Yarn + Candle Club one month and the Guilty as Charged Bag + Yarn + Candle Club the next.  The choice is yours but you must make 8 club purchases.  The bonus bag is exclusive and will only be available to those customers who have completed 8 club purchases.  Also, any clubs or club items made available for purchase once the club is revealed will not count toward the free bonus bag.

Please note:  This is not a subscription and your purchase will not automatically renew.   You must come back to the shop each month to make your purchase.  Purchases of other items do not count toward the bonus.  Also, clubs are limited and once they sell out they will not be relisted.

You can check out previous clubs on Instagram.
