No money needed for upcoming craft swap

Cashless Craft Swap to be held in Barriere on January 25

It’s time for another Cashless Craft Swap.  It will take place on Jan. 25, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (the Ridge).

For those of you who haven’t yet attended one of the swaps – 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, paint brushes, 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 (to name just a few of the types of things you can bring).

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. You don’t need to bring anything in order to take anything home, but, of course, the more the merrier.

Any items not claimed by the end of the swap will either be saved for the next swap, or donated to the library (if books), or donated to the thrift store at St. Paul’s (depends on exactly what is left).

Everyone is welcome. These swaps will take place four times a year.  If you miss this one, the next will be in April.  For more information, contact Margaret Houben at 250-672-9330 (evenings).
