It’s the last day of our winter sale so don’t wait to take advantage!
Spring must be on the way, because I just caught myself going through my stash and letting go of things that have been hanging around for far too long! It’s a bit early to publicize the yarn swap (it’s still a month and a half away), but I figured you might be in the same boat and also get a hankering to do some spring cleaning ….
NEXT SWAP: SUNDAY April 28, 1-3 pm
$5 – Proceeds go to the Red Door Women’s Shelter
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. 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. 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, the Mitzvah Knitters, Sistering’s Spun Studio, and Gilda’s Club, most of whom prefer acrylic! 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.
- $5 to participate in the swap (proceeds go to the Red Door Women’s Shelter)
- Drop-in, no need to sign up
- Everyone is welcome, all skill levels
- Location: 1382 Bathurst St, Toronto ON

By the way, our last swap in January was one of our best ever! We raised $100 for the Red Door Family Shelter and the company was excellent, so a big THANK YOU to everyone who donated and attended!
