During the month of March, the North Thompson Arts Council (NTAC) held it’s first ever Cashless Craft Swap.
Although there were not a lot of participants, those who did attend seemed to thoroughly enjoy it, with several tables full of items to rummage through.
Now that everyone understands a bit better how it works, and what sorts of things to bring, it’s time for another Swap. On June 8, from 10 a.m. till noon, NTAC will have another Cashless Craft Swap for the community to enjoy. This will be held at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (the Ridge).
For those of you who missed the first one – no money is involved in any way shape or form. Just bring your unwanted craft related items: rubber stamps, balls of wool, ribbons, charcoal pencils, paintbrushes, paper punches, ink, paper of any description, material, knitting or crochet needles, thread, patterns, how-to books or magazines on any craft or art, or that old box of crayons your kids no longer use.
Then browse the tables full of things everyone else has brought, and pick up some items for the craft or art that you are interested in.
Any items not claimed by the end of the swap will either be saved for the next swap, or if books – donated to the library, or may be donated to the thrift store at the Church of St Paul (depending on the items that are left).
Everyone is welcome.
