It’s spring cleaning time in your sewing room, craft drawers, and quilty bookshelf. Bring along the items that you’re done with, as much as you like but at least a small bag of stuff. When you get to the meeting, there will be a table designated to drop off your bags and boxes – no peeking! We will have a couple of non-participating volunteers empty all of the containers and return them to you (so label your bags and boxes with your name – taped or pinned on is fine).
When everything is ready we will do a count of three and then sprint to the goodie pile to load up our bags.
Stuff to bring:
- Fabric of any kind and style. If pieces are small you can bundle them together or bag them. You don’t really need to make ‘em pretty but a rubber band or string would be helpful to keep things from getting too unfolded. Upholstery weight fabric is fine too.
- Fabric scraps packaged up so that they don’t make a mess – a ziplock is fine.
- Craft/sewing/quilting magazines & books
- Other crafty stuff that you are done with: yarn, paper, felt, scrapbook supplies, etc.
Again, you can bring as much as you want, or just a small bag of stuff. Folks who brought items will get first go at the table, but when they are satiated, peeps who forgot will also get a chance to help themselves. We have a couple of volunteers who will be taking the leftover items for donation.
Thanks to the St. Louis MQG for this awesome idea!
