ANNUAL FIBER SWAP!!!

  • Jan 13, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Happy 2013 Y'all!! Let's ring in the new year with a little 'out with the old, in with the new'!!

This was *SO* fun last year, we're doing it AGAIN! Bring fiber-related things that you don't or won't use again. Patterns for sewing, embroidery, knitting, felting, crocheting. . . yarn, fabric, thread, embroidery floss, tools like needles, embroidery hoops - WHATEVER so long as it relates to what we do and is in decent shape. (Don't bring broken things or things you plan to sell.)

Some of you may have been to other swaps where money is exchanged if the swap doesn't seem fair. Not happening here. Think of your contributions as 'donations' with the opportunity of walking away with some sweet free loot!! What doesn't go to a new home will be dropped off at a charity / after school program. (TBD)

Also, if you DO have some fiber related tools you wanted to sell - (like a sewing machine), go ahead and post the details on our meetup 'Discussions' page -and if anyone is interested, they can message you.

Please bring something to stitch to this meetup! The swap won't take that long and we've got cozy seats by the fireplaces and hot tea and coffee! mmmm!!!

Also, feel free to bring your favorite savory or sweet appetizer to share!

Tastes change. . . Hobbies change...Time to go through all of that crafty stuff you will never use and give it a new home!!

See y'all there!!

Hearts!

    What a good time. I think I came home with less than I brought and hope whoever took possession of my oldies-but-goodies enjoys their loot. I promise to join you again in the future.

    Is it ok if I bring my nursing baby? I know kids aren't usually welcome at this type of thing, but we just moved and I have a big box of things to swap!

    can we add WOOL SWEATERS to the list of materials to swap? as in, i need 'em if you got 'em... i will be bringing plenty yarn to give away... and i'd love to take your sweaters in exchange: any animal fiber or blend is great, also finer gauge cotton sweaters. skip goodwill, bring your old clothes to me!! THANKS :)

      I don't mind digging through unfinished yarn projects. Anyone else want to weigh in?

    Timing couldn't be better for me! I am SO needing to get rid of some crafting stuff. Can't wait...

    This sounds great! My mother gave me her sewing machine a couple months ago, so aside from knitting, I'll also be interested in patterns, fabrics and maybe some tips as well. This is the perfect excuse to finally go through my yarn stash and bring along some goodies I'm finally willing to let go of.

    In the meantime, I hope everyone has a joyous holiday season and a wonderFULL New Year.
