It's ALMOST here...the Bi-Annual Flint Handmade Craft Supply Swap!
On the first Sunday of every February and August, Flint Handmade hosts a FREE Craft Supply Swap at The Lunch Studio in Downtown Flint!
At our very first Swap in August 2009, we had about 10 people in attendance. In February 2010, we had about 20 people. We had 40 people in August 2010. And, in February 2011, we had OVER 100 PEOPLE in attendance!
We're aiming for 150 people to attend our 5th Craft Supply Swap on Sunday, August 7 from noon-3pm at The Lunch Studio!
In order to accomodate SO MANY people, we are moving the Swap onto the sidewalk and changing things up a bit!
Here's how it's gonna work:
Noon: Swappers sign in at the Flint Handmade Registration Table INSIDE The Lunch Studio!
The first 25 Swappers to sign in get one of our BRAND NEW Knuckles reusable grocery totes for FREE in their choice of blue or red!
Additional totes can be purchased for $3 each.
If you brought supplies to swap, a Flint Handmade volunteer will take your donations and sort them onto the appropriate tables outside. We will have a table for yarn, a table for fabric, etc.
12:30pm: Swappers who donated supplies get first dibs!
These Swappers will get a special hand stamp to identify them for early access to the Swap. :)
1pm-3pm: The Swap opens up to all Swappers! Whether your brought supplies or not, you get to take as much as you like!
The Flint Handmade Registration Table INSIDE The Lunch Studio will be open during the entire Swap and you must sign in to participate.
The Lunch Studio will be open for business, so you can grab lunch inside at anytime and then head back outside for some more swapping!
In case of rain, we will move the entire event indoors, but it might be a little crowded, so be prepared!
