A craft swap allows folks to drop off unused crafts, and: a) feel good about sustainably donating items that will be reused by new crafters and/or b) get first dibs on “shopping” for new craft supplies!
How it works:
1) Drop off any unused or unwanted craft items at the Morse Institute Library between Tuesday, October 10th, and Thursday, October 12th.
2) Receive a ticket for early access to the Craft Swap (from 9-11 am on Friday, October 13th in the Lebowitz Meeting Hall.)
3) Early access “shoppers” get the first pick of what’s available
4) At 11 am the Craft Swap will open to the general public in the Lebowitz Meeting Hall.
Do I have to donate a certain amount of stuff to get an early access ticket?
No, we don’t judge. Drop off stuff, and get a ticket! It’s that easy
Do I have to donate crafts in order to participate in the swap?
No, you will be able to “shop”: from Friday, October 13th at 11 am through 3 pm on Saturday, October 14th.
I have a couple of shoe boxes full of beads and metal wire. I don’t have time to sort it all out. Can I just drop it off and be done with it?
We gently ask that all donated craft supplies have containers (i.e. please don’t give us a handful of beads), and be clean and free of damage. These should be new or gently-used items you would like to find a home.
Am I limited in how many craft supplies I can take?
No, there is no limit to the number of free craft supplies you can take with you. The only thing we ask is to please be respectful to other folks who also might be interested in items and to always be kind.
Will you have bags or containers on hand for me to put all my stuff in?
No, you will have to bring your own bags.
