Craft Donations Needed for Library CraftSquad’s First Community Craft Swap

To encourage creativity and reduce waste through reusing and repurposing, the University Branch Library’s Craft Squad will have a Community Craft Swap on Friday, January 6th, in Meeting Room 1 of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.

Between December 10th and January 5th, crafters are encouraged to clean out their craft closets and donate any unwanted craft supplies in good, usable condition. Materials should be brought to the library during business hours no later than January 5th.

Crafters who bring their unused craft supplies by January 5th will receive special early access (1 to 2 pm) to the Craft Swap on January 6th.

After 2 pm on the day of the Craft Swap, the event is open to everyone, including those who did not contribute supplies during the donation period. Free crafting supplies can be claimed from 2 to 4 pm. This is an excellent way for anyone thinking about trying a new craft or hobby to pick up start-up materials without investing in a large amount of money.

Examples of accepted craft supplies include yarn, stickers, buttons, fabric, unopened paint, brushes, knitting needles, crochet hooks, pens, markers, stamps, beads, scrapbooking materials, unused craft kits and coloring books.

The Craft Squad meets weekly on Fridays, from 2 to 4 pm, at the library. Anyone who enjoys crafts will have an opportunity to make new crafty friends, learn a new craft or two, and share tips, tricks, and resources with fellow crafters.

The event is free and open to the public. Visit or call the University Branch Library at 281-633-5100 for more information.
