It’s that time of year again … time to tidy up your yarn stash and purge the stuff you’re never going to use. That’s right, you can bring us your shame and leave your guilt in our yarn swap bins with the assurance that the yarn that didn’t work out for you will have a second (or third, or fourth) life in a new home. And while you are here you can also drop off your knitted donations for Street Knit and Knitted Knockers of Canada!
What Is A Yarn Swap?
What do you do at a swap? Bring in the yarn and needles you don’t want and take home whatever you like from our swap bins.
Leftovers Go To Charity
The leftovers are donated to charities, and don’t be embarrassed by the quality of the yarn you bring, whatever is left over is donated to charities like Street Knit, West Toronto Support Services, and Gilda’s Club, most of whom prefer acrylic!
Donate Any Time
If you want to donate but can’t make the date please feel free to drop it by when we are open, sealed up in a plastic bag. The only yarn we can’t accept is anything that is strongly scented (cigarette smoke or perfume). We are also a drop-off point for Street Knit and Knitted Knockers of Canada.
Yarn swap is a congenial, collective, happy event. We gently remind our swappers to play nicely in the yarn boxes:
- Be Kind
- Be Gentle
- Don’t Grab
- Don’t Hoard
- Don’t bring anything that smells of cigarette smoke (it is unfortunately destined for the garbage).
This is a FREE drop-in event, you do not need to register, just show up!
