Yarn Swap

Sunday January 22, 1 to 3pm

Our 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 from the donations. Don’t be embarrassed by the quality of yarn you bring, whatever is left over is donated to charities like Street Knit, Sistering, Silver Circle Seniors Services, and Gilda’s Club, most of whom prefer acrylic!

Sixteen Bags Full!

Many thanks to everyone who came and/or donated to our yarn swap in October! It was literally an embarrassment of riches – we collected about eleven bags of yarn and hand knits for StreetKnit, three bags for West Toronto Support Services, and another bag for “A Good Yarn” of  Sir John A MacDonald CI (they especially appreciated the needles). When the ladies from StreetKnit (above) left their car was FULL.

If you want to make a donation of yarn, needles or hand knits but can’t make it to one of our swaps please feel free to bring it to the store in a sealed plastic bag any time we are open.

Our next swap is Sunday January 22, 2017, 1-3pm.

P.S.
I spent a little time tonight bagging (zilpoc bags from the dollar store are my best friends), labelling, and ruthlessly weeding my stash. The first bucket is already full – treasures abound!
