Flint Handmade is hosting Craft Supply Swaps all over Genesee County in 2017! For October, we’ll be back at The Lunch Studio in Downtown Flint where you can get an amazing lunch while you swap with friends!
How the Craft Supply Swaps Work:
Throughout the year, gather up clean craft supplies in good condition that you no longer use or want. Hold on to these supplies until the Swap.
On the day of the Swap, Swappers are encouraged to make a donation of $3-$5 to Flint Handmade in support of our mission to provide opportunities for creative expression and artisitic entrepreneurship.
We have tables with labeled bins for every craft supply category (e.g. yarn, fabric, patterns, etc.). If you bring supplies to Swap, Flint Handmade volunteers will sort your items onto the appropriate tables.
You may then take as much or as little as you like whether you brought supplies to swap or not. Remember to bring your own tote bags.
When the Swap ends, our volunteers will pack up any remaining supplies and donate them to local charities. If you know of any charities, community groups, etc. that are in need of craft supplies please have someone come to the swap in the last 30 minutes of the event and they will be welcome to take any remaining swap items. If you would like to volunteer at the Swap, please comment on the event page.
Supplies may include, but are not limited to fabric, thread, ribbon, sewing notions, buttons, patterns, crafting books, scrapbook supplies, adhesives, painting supplies, embroidery hoops & floss, yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles, beads and beading supplies.
