NEW FOR 2014! By popular demand, Flint Handmade Craft Supply Swaps are moving back to The Lunch Studio in Downtown Flint! Plus, instead of happening just twice a year, the Swaps will now be offered FOUR TIMES A YEAR on the first Saturday of January, April, July and October from noon-3pm!
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 first Saturday in January, April, July or October.
On the day of the Swap, Swappers sign in and are encouraged to make a donation of $3-$5 at the Flint Handmade table inside The Lunch Studio.
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 take as much or as little as you like whether you brought supplies to swap or not. Remember to bring your own tote bags or you may purchase Flint Handmade grocery totes for $2 each.
The Lunch Studio will be serving up delicious soups and sandwiches, so be sure come hungry! After you get lunch, you can Swap some more!
When the Swap ends, our volunteers will pack up any remaining supplies and donate them to local charities. If you would like to volunteer at the Swap, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
