Geek Craft: Craft Supply Swap

Crafters, unite! It is time to reach into those forgotten craft supplies, the leftovers, the unused bits and bobs that have been left lonely and untouched, that project you bought 7 years ago and just never felt the passion to work on, and pass them on to a new home.

Yes, it's time for a crafting supplies swap!  Personally, I know I have lots of unused supplies I could declutter, like small cross stitch kits, fabric, card making and scrapbooking supplies, pattern books, craft books or magazines, craft tools, yarn, fabric, beads, stamps and probably more. Bring what you no longer want to hang on to and maybe someone else will love it and put it to good use.

Any questions, just ask in the comments!

As always, don't feel it is necessary to participate in the craft of the day, please feel free to work on your own project in the company of your fellow geeky crafters.

Our weekly Dinner and Death event will also be happening this evening, once the event gets posted, if you plan on staying for at least the dinner portion, please make sure that you RSVP separately in that event.

There is no cost to join the event, but we do ask you to show respect to our headquarters (La Fontana Caffe) where our events are held, so please don't bring in any outside food, and please clean up after yourself (ie, left over craft pieces such as scrap yarn or paper cuttings)

      Mel, I cannot come -- but if no one brings thick yarn, I several skeins of bulky, boucle in either green or brown I can give you.

    Drat. Meant to come, but made commitment to visit my Mom instead. And get raw cat food.

    Very tempted to join this but I also have studies to do. Perhaps I could just bring my stuff and study there?

      I've seen people doing homework there before, I think it could work ;)

    July 8, 2014

    • Samantha

      Yes, on August 10, but this event needs more preperation for some people, that's why I posted it now.

      July 8, 2014

  • Kevin O.
