Yarn Swap

Saturday October 26, 2019: 1 - 3 pm

$5 - Proceeds go to the Red Door Family Shelter

It’s swap time again! Time to tidy up your yarn stash and purge the stuff you’re never going to use. That’s right, you can bring us your shame and leave your guilt in our yarn swap bins with the assurance that the yarn that didn’t work out for you will have a second (or third, or fourth) life in a new home. What do you do at a swap? Bring in the yarn and needles you don’t want and take home whatever you like from our swap bins.

NEW! Knit Swap

Got projects that didn't quite work out, that you never wear or use, and are sitting in the back of the cupboard? I DO - LOTS! I just finished the first wave of spring cleaning in the store and am sending a bunch of old store samples out into the universe. Please bring in your projects & knits that didn't make the cut, we'll swap them and the leftovers will go to charity.


  • Yarn (please secure bits & bobs in a ziplock bag)
  • Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks
  • Knitting & Crochet Notions & Accessories
  • Knits (see above)
Please Note: partial balls are fine, but please bag them up together in a ziplock.


The leftovers are donated to charities, and don’t be embarrassed by the quality of the yarn you bring, whatever is left over is donated to charities like Street KnitWest Toronto Support Services, and Gilda’s Club, most of whom prefer acrylic! If you want to donate but can’t make the date please feel free to drop it by when we are open, sealed up in a plastic bag. The only yarn we can’t accept is anything that is strongly scented (cigarette smoke or perfume). We are also a drop-off point for Street Knit and Knitted Knockers of Canada
