you are invited to a TORONTO CRAFT ALERT fabric and clothing swap

Hasn't it been awesome out? If you’re like me you are feeling that spring urge to clean out unwieldy drawers and closets to shed dusty winter layers in favour of spring lovelies. As a fabric hoarder I am feeling the same way about my stash: out with the old and unused and in with the new and inspiring.

So I propose a fabric and clothing swap, open to all TCA readers. It will happen on Sunday May 7 starting at 2pm - please arrive on time-ish for smooth swapping. This is a completely free event (though snacks for sharing are most welcome).

Just in case any of you are new to this concept, you will need to bring a pile of your unwanted (but possibly awesome or useful to someone else) clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. and if you’ve got, fabrics and sewing notions that you can bear to part with. Then you get to root around in other people’s loot for things to take home. Left over items will be donated to a charitable organization (suggestions welcome).

In order to keep things from getting out of hand, please email me to confirm your attendance and get the contact info. If you would like to bring a friend, pretty please include that in your email.

Hope to see you there!

Without much luck, I was searching for blogs about Dolls & Bears when I happened across yours. It's a cool blog. Evidently you like telling it like it is! I have a really great ebay website that is easy to use that you may like. If you get a chance, check it out
