The Big Craft Swish is Back! December 07, 2017 17:23
The Big Craft Swish is back, and it's even bigger this year! So get Sunday 28th January 10.00-12.45 in your diary because it's going to be huge...
Purge, streamline, springclean, whatever you want to call it, it's time to open those dusty boxes and pull out the stuff at the back of the drawer! Your unwanted crafty stuff, that fabric you bought on sale but are afraid to try and sew with, that candle making kit you haven't got round to opening, the 57 variations on the same colour yarn - it needs to go to a new home!
Clear our your cupboards and give something back to the crafty world by putting it in the Big Craft Swish. Your rash buys are someone else's perfect crafty find! And you might find a treasure trove of inspirational new stuff to rescue and rehome, so let's make up for our moments of credit card madness and make sure nothing goes to waste!
All profit will be split between Mind and Stop the Traffik
It works like this!
1) Everyone must bring at least one item of quality craft material or kit (drop off from 10.00am)
2) You will have half an hour to browse before the swish opens (10.30 – 11.00am)
3) No item may be claimed before the swish opens at 11.00am
4) As soon as the swish is declared open, everyone may take what they want.
5) Remember we’re here for sharing not sharp elbows!
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! The Swish needs quite a few people to run it on the day. We need some people to sort the contributions as they come in, and keep the tables tidy, someone to check tickets on the door, someone to set some quiz questions and someone to compere the quiz! Volunteers go free, and get in first to the Swish, so have the best chance of getting their stuff!
*Any piece of crafty materials or kit will count as a crafty contribution, as long as it's not broken or spoiled in any way.
