Sweets & Swap Meeting

Come enjoy a summer evening of Sweets & Swaps!  We haven't had a meeting for the month of August in the past, but we just couldn't resist this year!

The Sweets:
We'll have a spread of cupcakes and other sweet treats along with tea and coffee, perfect to go with an evening of yarn crafting!  Feel free to come early and pick up some dinner or enjoy a local beer from the taproom.  

The Swaps:
Is the size of your stash causing you stress?  Do you have shelves of knitting and crochet books that are languishing unread?  Bring your yarn (in good shape and full balls only) and books or needles/hooks and swap them for something new!  New to you, that is!  All swaps will be arranged between individuals and you can barter for other items and/or cash.  

This month's event is $5 to partially cover the cost of renting the space from Whole Foods.  Pay through Paypal by clicking here.  

As always, we will be having a raffle and will do a show and tell of your recent projects.  

The fine print:  The Guild is not responsible for any trades or outcomes of trades. This should be a fun, good natured event for all involved.  We are not asking you to limit what you bring in terms of quality or quantity, but higher quality items will probably yield you better swaps.

    I'm also following Susie's lead and have started putting yarn, etc. in bags. Whatever doesn't get swapped will be donated to the Horizons kids!

      What a great idea, to donate to the Horizon kids. Will go through my stash. Have already tucked aside some straight bamboo needles for Horizon. :-)

      Thank you, Merryl! Yes, straight needles are what's needed, sizes mostly 7 to 12, but do have a couple of girls who are more advanced and love to try smaller sizes.

    I didn't pay my $5 can I give it to you on Thursday?

      Yes. Well, not to me, but someone who is responsible for such things will be more than happy to take your $5 on Thursday.

    I am going to follow Susie's example and prepare my stuff! I have yarn, I have books, I have magazines!
    I am also looking for donations of yarn for my knitting programme with the Horizons kids, as we have no budget for yarn and needles, and I just gave the 19 knitters who participated this summer a skein of yarn and some needles to take home! Anything you really don't want and cannot sell or trade, partial skeins fine!

      I can probably dig out some stuff. Any particular weights/colors/fiber?

      Not black, not lace, but pretty much anything else! They particularly love multicoloured yarn, and pinks and purples!

    I've already set aside some things I'm bringing: there's some yarn (enough for sweaters), some Madelinetosh & Malabrigo that in colors better suited for others, single skeins of various weights as well as some books, magazines & maybe needles. I'm looking for yarn suitable for US needle sizes 4, 5, and 6 but I'll look at everything every you brings. Look forward to seeing everyone :)

    I am looking forward to this and sure hope we get enough people to come! It looks like a lot of fun, and the space at Whole Foods is great! I know I'll be bringing stuff and hoping to find "other" stuff!

      You can - but we need to know for sure if you're coming. If we don't have enough people we will have to cancel the event. :-(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
