Craft Swap

This post was shamlessely lifted from the Pop Culture Rehab blog...

I, like most of you, love clearing out and cleaning up during the cold winter months. Maybe its the newness of a new year, or the long evenings spent inside, but every January I go through a serious purging of stuff.

This January is no different, and for the 5th year in a row I will be hosting the Crafters Anonymous Craft Swap!

Crafters Anonymous Craft Swap presented by the FOUND Collective

The Crafters Anonymous Craft Swap is an opportunity for artists, crafters, creators and makers of all types to get together in a fun, social environment and trade unwanted craft supplies. You bring in stuff you no longer use and trade up for stuff you want. We provide work tables at the event so you are welcome to sit, chat and make all day. The event is my way of helping the creative community in RVA to recycle and to help give back to area non-profits who use art/craft in their mission. Financial proceeds from the event go to benefit Art 180 and all leftover supplies are free to local non-profits after the event. Please check out the event website for details.

So, while you are cleaning and organizing your space this month, why not start a bag for the swap?
