Yarn Swap
How does it work? Bring in any yarns from your stash that you haven't been able to find a use for, and trade them in for something new!
Here are some ground rules:
  • Only bring yarn you are absolutely ready to part with.
  • Because everyone will be bringing yarn with varying price points, it's best not to come with a specific monetary value in mind that you're looking to recoup
  • Both Annie and Co and non-Annie and Co yarns are welcome
  • Yarn must still have a label accompanying it (indicating fiber content, yardage, etc.)
  • You must bring something to contribute in order to participate - no coming in just to graze the pile for free
 Yarns that aren't chosen at the end of the swap will be donated.
