Upcycle Exchange Loot

A couple of Sundays ago I went to an Upcycle Exchange Open House.  The cost was $10 for a paper grocery bag of items.  They collect a bunch of art supplies and you get to choose amongst the collection.  It was fun and I feel I got more than 10 dollars worth of stuff.  Plus, I now have a place to pass on my supplies I no longer need.

My bag came home filled with crafty potentials. 21 different fabric scraps – some fat quarter sized, with a beautiful skein of purple and white wool are what I found to add to my fabric and yarn stashes.

I also got some pens and drawing pencils, a circular knitting needle, a tiny calligraphy pen, a gouge tool for making stencils, some dye, some magnets, and a very cool wooden box.

It costs $15 a quarter to join.  At the monthly meetings, if you get a bag of stuff, you pay $5.  I will join in May when they have open enrollment.  I had a good time and got some great stuff.
