Vintage Faith Church has asked us to arrive after 10:00, when their office
opens, instead of before. Therefore, day meetings are now planned to start
at 10:15 and run until 12:15, to allow for some set-up time after 10:00.
So here’s the revised version of what I sent earlier:
Was your New Year’s resolution to clean up your yarn stash? Good, because
now you can swap for more. There’s no such thing as too much yarn!
Welcome to: The Knitting Guild Annual Yarn Swap.
Here’s how the swap will work:
– If you have yarn that you no longer want or know you won’t use and you
want to simply give it away or swap for something else, that yarn will go
on the “free for swap” table. [Please bring a reasonable amount; this
isn’t the place to unload.]
– Depending on how many people want to participate in the “free for swap”
table, we’ll draw numbers to make sure everyone has a chance to find a yarn
she might like.
– Don’t have any yarns to bring? That’s OK. After yarn contributors swap,
the table will be open for others to review. Whatever unwanted yarn is
left at the end will be donated to charity (or if your yarn wasn’t swapped,
you can take it back if you want).
– Have some yarn that you’d like to sell? That’s OK, too. Simply mark the
skeins with your name and the price and those yarns will be available for
anyone at the meeting to purchase from you directly. So bring cash or a
checkbook if you think you might be purchasing yarn. All money
transactions are done independent of the Guild.
This is a great opportunity to pick up some yarns that are new to you or
yarns that might supplement ones in your own stash. At least one swift and
ball winder will also be available at each meeting. After the Yarn Swap,
the meeting will continue with our usual show-and-share.
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, February 10, from 6:30 to 8:30
p.m. in the Fireside Room at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, 2500 Soquel Ave.
The DAY MEETING will be on Thursday, February 19, from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15
