Ghastly is a monthly yarn (and book!) club for the first half of 2021 that celebrates six classic works of the gothic horror genre.
Ghosts! Forlorn wanderings on the moors. A love story, or a criticism of the wealthy class and violence?
"a compound of vulgar depravity and unnatural horrors….” –Graham’s Lady’s Magazine, July, 1848
First published by an "Ellis Bell," Wuthering Heights caused quite a ruckus in 1847, first for the subject matter which challenged conservative Victorian ideals and religious values, and a second uproar when folks found out that Ellis Bell was actually a woman named Emily Brontë.
How the Yarn Club Works
Each month a different classic work of gothic horror is featured, with a mood board that will guide the limited, surprise colorway.
