Textile Material Swap in the Hilltowns
Ashfield Needles and Threads Material Swap
Sunday, January 22nd at 1pm
Do you have bits and pieces of textiles left over from holiday craft projects that you’ll likely not use anytime soon, or tattered and torn clothes your kids have outgrown and you don’t want to see them thrown out? Or are you a crafter in search of inspiration (or perhaps some new yarn or fabric) for your next project? Ashfield Needles and Threads (ANTS) is hosting a free materials swap!
On Sunday, January 22nd at 1pm, ANTS’ swap will take place at the Ashfield Congregational Church. Sewers, knitters, and crafters of all sorts can bring their yarn, patterns, needles, fabric, buttons, thread, and all other bits and pieces (including great ideas to share!) to the swap in order to thin out your collection or bulk up your supplies (or perhaps do a little of both).
Sharing supplies is a totally green way to start a new project- you’ll be preventing waste and will preserve resources by not buying something new! Kids who are just beginning to venture into the world of knitting or sewing can especially benefit from the swap- they’ll get to peruse the collections of other more experienced crafters and will gain both great materials and project ideas!
All items leftover after the swap will be either taken home by their contributors or will be donated to ANTS for future projects. The Ashfield Congregational Church is located on Main Street in Ashfield, across from the town green.
