Tell me, what artist / crafter hasn’t got a stash of goodies and supplies they can’t wait to work with, if only they had the time?? Now tell me, who hasn’t got some supplies that they’ll probably never get to? Whether you’ve decided to focus exclusively on sewing, so maybe you can now give away your paints, or if you’ve decided never to bead again, many of us have some sort of supplies we no longer want. Well DON’T THROW THEM AWAY!! Please whatever you do…whether you take them to the Goodwill or donate them to a school…art supplies are not trash!

An art supply swap is a super easy event to coordinate: just buy a box of wine or some beer and some snacks and invite your friends over…there will be things left over so be sure to line up somewhere to drop off the goods, or someone who can pick them up…Many of our members are educators so they were able to take a lot of things to share with their students, and we had a local group of veterans pick up the rest. One thing is for sure, we all left inspired and ready to get to work with our newly found treasures!
