We're excited to host our first destash sale and brunch potluck!
WHERE IS IT?
Our regular meeting place: Fremont United Methodist Church, 2620 NE Fremont Street, Portland.
WHO CAN COME?
Everybody! Do you want to sell some yarn from your stash? Then come. Are you interested in seeing what others are selling and maybe interested in picking up a skein or a sweater quantity? Then come. Are you just interested in hanging out and knitting while enjoying the company of other knitters? Then join us!
WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE SALE?
It's a silent auction. Bring your yarn and fill out our form that sets the minimum bis and notifies potential buyers what forms of payment you can accept (cash, check, PayPal, Venmo or other payment app). Then others can browse and bid on yarn.
Bids stop at 11:00 am and then buyers and sellers can settle up. All transactions are between the buyer and the seller; the guild does not participate in the sale. There is no cost to sell yarn at the Destash Sale.
HOW DO I GET A SALE FORM?
If you didn't pick up a sale form at the meeting, we will have them available Saturday at the event. If you want to get them filled out before hand, download one here, or just shoot us an email at email@example.com and we'll send you the form for you to print out.
WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE BRUNCH?
It's a potluck, so just bring something to share. (Margaret has been practicing her carrot-almond scones.)
The guild will provide coffee and tea, and plates. If you want to be super helpful, you can bring your own coffee cup and utensils.
WHAT ABOUT MIMOSAS?
Our lease with the church does not allow for alcoholic beverages, but mocktails would be delightful.
IS THIS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT?
CAN I HELP?
That would be great! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help set up at 8:15 am, or stay a few minutes after the sale and help clean up.
Missives from the fabulous women who got the ball (of yarn) rolling.
