Our swap parties are not about politely trading one thing for another. Here’s how it works: You bring in all the fabric you are willing to part with. Rummage through your linen closets, hope chests and project boxes and purge all that you can. Then we neatly arrange all the fabric goodies on our studio work tables. You will have a chance to review all the contributions before we all dig in. Then the organized arrangement swiftly turns into rummage chaos. If someone gets that chiffon you were eyeing before you do, you might have to persuade them to trade with you. Join us for a cup of tea and share your fabric foibles at the swap. Get rid of your excess fabric. And since it is happening in October (Breast Cancer awareness month), we are raising money for the Breast Cancer Society. Trade trash for treasure. Be inspired by your fabric findings and help raise funds to put an end to breast cancer

Time: 6:30 – till we drop
