Our next yarn swap is fast approaching! This month I’m doing a little spring cleaning, and I’m purging some extraneous yarn in my stash – namely, ALL of my Mission Falls 1824 Cotton. Right now, I’m packing it up in tidy bags and labeling it. I’m also getting rid of a few balls (3 of 4?) of Cascade Fixation that was also sitting around.
Additionally, we’ve received already received a few donations this week! A bunch of crochet cotton came in earlier this week, and two big garbage bags of yarn just walked through the door (I haven’t had a chance to peek yet, but lets just leave it as a surprise).
What is a Yarn Swap? A yarn swap is a big eco-friendly redistribution of yarn, needles and other craft supplies. Bring in the crafty stuff you never want to see again and deposit it in one of our baskets. Poke around at all the other donations and take home whatever you like. It’s OK If you don’t have any yarn to bring, you can still take whatever you like – sometimes you have stuff to give, and sometimes you don’t. Don’t be embarrassed by the quality of yarn you bring, whatever is left over is donated to charities like Street Knit, Sistering Toronto, Women’s Shelters and the Hospital for Sick Children, most of whom prefer acrylic! After the swap, stay and hang out with us for s Stitch ‘N Bitch!
