Dappled Fern Skein Swap

Saturday, December 4
11am – 3pm

Bring up to 20 skeins of natural fiber yarn and take up to 20 skeins! A fun way to refresh your fiber stash and hang out with local knitters, while helping Minnesota textile artist and Native business owner, Maggie Thompson, grow her business. 50% of proceeds will go to Maggie (Fond du Lac Ojibwe) at Makwa Studio towards her purchase of a Stoll knitting machine. Want to give to Maggie directly? You can do that here!

  • Drop off yarn by Thursday, Dec 2. Up to 20 full skeins of natural fiber plus any quantity of scrap yarn.
