Hi - I'm Sonia and I'm the founder of London Craft Club. I've been running the club since 2014 and it's a great gig. I spend my days trying out new crafts, meeting with other c... More Info »
This Funzing Experience:

This is it! The Big Craft Swish!

Let's not lie about it, crafting uses up a lot of materials. And even more materials don't get used at all! So if you have a secret stash of guilty craft purchases, this is for you….

• Swish away your ill-advised crafty purchases
• Take home some guilt-free stuff you’ll use
• Help minimise waste
• Add some good karma to the world of craft
• Share your crafty stories with other crafters

All that stuff going to waste in our cupboards, lofts and under our beds is a crying shame. It’s taking up space that us London-dwellers can ill afford, and all that clutter just isn’t good for our creative souls. So let's do something about it.

Maybe you’re new to craft, and you bought a load of stuff that now you don’t know what to do with? Bring it along and swap it for something you can use. Or you might even meet someone who can show you what to do with it instead.

Already a super crafter? Come along and declutter, get inspiration, encourage the newbies and share stories with fellow crafters.

Here’s the rules – simple but fair…

1) Everyone must bring at least one item of quality craft material or kit (drop off from 2pm)
2) You will have half an hour to browse before the swish opens (2.30 – 3pm)
3) No item may be claimed before the swish opens at 3pm
4) As soon as the swish is declared open, everyone may take what they want
5) Remember the idea is sharing not sharp elbows!

The event will take place at the Spread Eagle who do a very nice Sunday lunch so why not book in to eat first then pop up at 2.30 for the browsing before the swish opens at 3pm?

Volunteers Needed!
If you’d like to volunteer please let host Sonia know. They are looking for help on the door, manning the tables which will be arranged by craft (i.e. a yarn table, a paper craft table, a sewing table) and tidying up. Volunteers get free entry, a better chance of getting their stuff, and the satisfaction of having done a good deed! Contact Sonia through the Funzing messenger if you're interested.

Spread the world – the more people come the better it will be!
