The February Guild meeting will be our annual Stash Exchange. A great way to fight the winter doldrums….NEW (TO YOU) YARN! This is our opportunity to change out our old, unused yarn for something new and exciting. This is the way it works: you bring your yarn, other people bring their yarn. It’s put on display. All those who brought yarn get a number. When your number is called you get to choose from the yarns on display. It’s optional, of course, but most of us have at least one or two skeins we bought on impulse that we’ve never used. It’s fun to trade it for something that hopefully we will use. Don’t neglect to bring those small balls of leftovers, either. There are things to be done even with bits and pieces. Come to the meeting and get some ideas.
Yes, in addition to exchanging yarn, let’s exchange ideas! As part of the program, bring your ideas, patterns, completed items for projects using one skein or less of yarn. Let’s see if we can get some really creative ideas!
There will be a swift and ball winder available at the meetings to assist anyone who would like to wind their yarn.
We look forward to seeing you all in February.
