Crafternoons, Mornings and Nights

Crafter-morning: White Elephant
Blackstone Library 4904 S. Lake Park Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60615
Saturday, December 30, 2017, 9a – 12p.
Crafter-morning’s first annual White Elephant Mystery Yarn Exchange.  Surely you have stash you no longer like or need. Wrap your forgotten skein(s) in a bag or box. With a White Elephant, take a present according to your selected number. If you like what someone else already opened, you can opt to steal from them, and then they choose a new present from the pile.

Rules:
1. Must be a fiber you no longer want, valued at least $7
2. Each gift can only be stolen 3 times and then it is dead (can’t be transferred)
3. You can only participate if you brought a gift and it must be wrapped

Bring your latest project and breakfast.
