I went to the last one of these and it was amazing! If you haven’t gone to a big free-for-all swap like this one, do yourself a favor and mark your calendar now.
When: Sunday, October 7th, 12-4 pm
Where: The 100th Monkey Studio, 110 SE 16th Ave (SE 16th and Ankeny), Portland
Admission: Bring any craft supplies you want to swap, and a $5.00 donation for 100th Monkey’s Art Scholarship Fund.
What happens: You’ll drop off your stuff at the entrance, and then head inside. We’ll give you an empty bag, and you can take any materials you can use from the swap tables.
We do have some guidelines on what to bring. Here they are:
– This swap is for yarns, beads, buttons, papers, rubber stamps, fabrics, sewing notions, art/craft books, paints, drawing materials, and anything else that relates directly to making art or crafts.
– Please don’t bring discarded items that could be “reclaimed” into other projects. We’re big fans of reclaimed materials, but they aren’t the best items for this kind of swap. (But you might consider donating them to SCRAP instead.)
– Fabrics must be at least 1/2 yard. Please do not bring smaller scraps, or finished or half-finished garments.
ps: I seem to be locked out of flickr at the moment, but once I’m back in I have some pretty photo posts ready to go… Viva Sampler!
