Cashless Craft Swap coming on July 28 at North Thompson Volunteer Centre

Everyone is welcome, and you don’t have to bring something to take something home

It’s time for another Cashless Craft Swap.  This one will be held on Monday, Jul. 28, 10 a.m. to noon at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre in the Ridge, Barriere.

If you haven’t been to one before, it is quite simple.  You bring any unwanted crafting supplies – such as knitting needles, balls of wool, books or magazines on a particular craft, paper, paintbrushes, thimbles, scissors, etc – and put it out on the tables for everyone else to see.

Then you browse through what everyone else has brought and if you see something you like – well, you take it home.

No money is involved… it’s as easy as that.

It’s fun to see all the interesting things everyone brings.  Sometimes there are cook books, sometimes there are patterns for baby clothes, sometimes paints.  One never knows what may be brought.

Once the event is over, anything not claimed will either be stored for the next swap, or given to the local thrift shop.

Everyone is welcome, and you don’t have to bring something to take something home.

For more information, contact Margaret Houben at 250-672-9330.
