Check these lists for what to bring:

SCRAP has lists of acceptable and unacceptable items.  Please RSVP to Megan McCoy to reserve a space at the craft supplies swap. Also please read through the following two links and tailor what you bring:

As with past craft supplies swaps, please RSVP to Megan  Neither SCRAP nor Megan will be taking remainders this time. Attendees need to be prepared to take back home any un-claimed items.

We will lay out all the items and when the swap coordinator says “Go,” everyone may take what they will use.  It’s FREE, no money changes hands.

To keep swaps fun for everyone, there is no “pre-swapping.”  Swappers wait until all participants have their stuff laid out and the swap coordinator says it’s time to start.  It is important that all items are clean on the outside – no wet paint drips, grimy coating, etc.

You don’t have to take away the same amount that you brought.  Bring what you no longer use, and take what you will use, whether that means you bring one craft tool and take away a whole new set of supplies, or unload a huge collection and only find one or two items to take home.

Here’s a few suggestions of items to bring:

(Neither SCRAP nor Megan will be taking remainders. Attendees need to be prepared to take back home any un-claimed items.)

It will make setup time go more smoothly if you “presort” your items into groups so you do not have to stand there and sort out a mixed collection before the swap can start.

If you have anything very large you are looking to give away, please do NOT bring it to the swap.  Remember most people will be taking items home in a small car or on the bus.  You might bring a picture of a large item and/or your contact information.  We will have an opportunity for you to announce your item then.

Please note: this is a CRAFT swap.  Please do not bring items for other hobbies such as cooking or gardening.  Bring them to the Spring Stuff Swap – information here.
