Monarch Holiday Open House

Please join us on Saturday, December 6th, as we celebrate together and share our love of this wonderful craft. We are busy planning a fun day that will include treats, drawings for prizes and an opportunity to share the projects you are working on. We are grateful for all who have made Monarch a part of their knitting world and we want to take time to thank you and share the holiday spirit. The party will go throughout the day on the 6th and we hope you can stop in and stay to enjoy some of the cheer.
