"There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope." -Barnard Williams

The theme for the Brown Bag exchange this year will be "Sunrise and Hope" to be interpreted however you wish! 

This year is going to work a little differently, since we aren't able to meet in person we have partnered with several local yarn shops to help complete the exchange.

Participating shops are:
The Sows Ear

DMarie Knit and Fiber

Kaleidoscope Fibers

Spry Whimsey

How it will work:

1-Purchase your yarn: Visit or call one of the participating shops to pick 200-400 yards of yarn of your choice. Tell them you are participating in the BBE when you complete your purchase, there will be $5 added to your purchase to cover shipping and they will take care of packaging and sending the yarn to your partner. We have changed the yarn requirements for this year, please be sure to purchase enough yarn for your partner to complete an accessory for you. A handy chart for estimating yarn requirements by weight and project type can be found here

2-Register for the BBE: Complete your registration on our website. Include the following information: Any allergies, which store you purchased yarn from and anything else we need to be aware of when we match you up. Registration will be open from October 14th through November 9th. Yarn must be purchased prior to the 9th so the vendors can begin shipping that week.

3- Knit! Projects should be completed by May 2021. We will keep you updated on the plan to exchange finished projects in the spring.

Please send any questions to secretary@madisonknittersguild.com 

We look forward to seeing your beautiful work, happy knitting!
