Craft Supply Exchange

...Read More

Do you have extra or unwanted craft materials? Bring them to the Craft Supplies Exchange open house at Alma Public Library on April 5th!

Come to the library anytime between 12-7 on April 5th to drop off your unwanted, usable craft supplies and  leave them for others who may want them. Then while you're here, take a look at what others have brought. You may find some inspiration to take up a new craft!

Participants may drop off clean, still usable craft materials such as yarn, fabrics, ribbon, colored pencils, beads, paints, embroidery floss, stamping or jewelry-making supplies, etc.

Everything will be exchanged for FREE so please only bring materials you would be willing to give away. We ask that small items be placed in clear plastic bags. No finished or for sale craft projects please.

At the end of the Exchange, all leftover materials not picked up by participants will be donated.
