Pre-YarnCon Swap and Packing Party

Dig through that closet and examine your bookshelves: It's time to destash (or at least make room for interesting new stash).

Bring yarn you want to trade (or donate to YarnCon) and books you just don't use. With luck, you'll leave with gorgeous new-to-you yarn and books.

We'll meet down in the cellar at Goose Island for some brunch and socializing, then we'll get down to the business of packing mystery bags for YarnCon.

    The Goose Island brain trust are piggish so I will never spend money there. Always great to see my knittas!

    Does yarn for donation need to be a full skein? And, does it matter if it's already wound in some fashion?

    • Dani

      Nope! It goes in our surprise bags. Wound, partial skeins are just fine.
