PSKC First Annual Alterna-Yarn Swap

Hello fellow crafters!

Our regularly scheduled Saturday evening meetup will start a bit earlier so we may have the PSKC First Annual Alterna-Yarn Swap.  What is an Alterna-Yarn Swap you ask?  It is exactly like our regular yarn swap except there is no point system.  As long as someone likes the yarn you bring and is willing to trade... you're set to swap!

There are only 2 rules:

1) New Yarn Only

2) If you have a pet, kindly put yarn in a baggie with note, as we have some members with allergies.

Please bring a chair or blanket for yourself so you may have a comfortable place to sit and any snack or beverage you'd like to have since Hanco's will not deliver to us

In case you have trouble finding our group, my cell phone is (917)[masked]

This meetup will be from 2p - 6p.

    It was a beautiful day for the Park. We had a great time knitting and swapping and of course, eating :)

    It was really nice having and Inclusive yarn swap. No snooty judgments! Our group was always better than that.

    It wasn't much of a swap, but a joy of a picnic in the park in the perfect weather... Life does not get much better than this! P.S. Sorry for my neurotic dogs...

    It would have been nice if we hadn't had to have a separate meetup or if we had a chance to do it at a time when there are not so many conflicting events. NICE yarns found new homes without any worry about price. We should do this again.

    Can I trade a knitting book to a yarn?

    September 28, 2011

  • Jackie

    Yes, any yarn which has its label and has not been used is accepted. Discontinued yarn is ok. Yarn in your stash for ages is ok. Haven't seen you in a long time - we miss you :)

    What do you mean by new yarn? Yarn which hasn't been upcycled, discontinued yarns, yarn that has been in your stash for ages and you forgot about ?

    Just FYI: The weekend of October 1/2 is also NYC Yarn Crawl Weekend. I know a lot of yarn stores will be having promotions and giveaways and such. Didn't want anyone to miss your swap because of the conflict. :-)

    Love-love-love the idea! Unfortunately, I have to work on September 24th, but, please, don't go by my schedule. The most important thing for a meeting in the park is a warm weather!

    I just realized I have a conflict on Oct 1st - my apologies. Perhaps we can reschedule to the week before (Sept 24th) or the week after (Oct 8th). Let's discuss at this Sat's meeting. Thank you!
