IT’S TIME FOR THE

ANNUAL CNKG YARN SWAP!

 

Once again the annual swap will be conducted as a “Mock Auction”.  Please read through in advance as some of the guidelines have changed.  Here’s how it will work:

 

Bring the yarn you would like to swap – see guidelines below.

 

Everyone who participates in the Mock Auction will receive 1,000 “Cactus Notes” which they can use to bid on the auction items.

 

Additional “Cactus Notes” will be given based on the yarn you bring to swap, as follows:

 

·        5 “Cactus Notes” for each yard of Acrylic yarn

·        7 “Cactus Notes” for each yard of Acrylic/Other fiber blend yarn

·        10 “Cactus Notes” for each yard of Wool yarn

·        15 “Cactus Notes: for each yard of Wool/Luxury fiber blend yarn

·        20 “Cactus Notes” for each yard of Luxury fiber (Cashmere, Silk, Alpaca, etc.)

 

Auction Guidelines:

 

·        Yarn must be new, whole skeins, with labels which include a description of the fiber content and yardage.

·        Random remnants cannot be submitted as a “lot”.

·        No more than three (3) submissions per person.

·        Complete the form below for each of your submissions to speed up the “Cactus Notes” calculation.  Yardage should be sufficient to complete an entire project.

·        Bidding for each lot of yarn will begin at 2500 “Cactus Notes”.

·        Once you have exchanged your yarn for “Cactus Notes”, it cannot be withdrawn from the auction.

·        If a yarn lot receives no bids, it can be returned to the original owner or donated to the Guild (original owner’s choice).

 

               

Please arrive by 6:15 to exchange your yarn for “Cactus Notes”.
