Yarn. Fabric. Felt. Thread. Maybe you can have too much of a good thing? Here’s your chance to do a little spring-cleaning, find some hidden crafty gems, and raise awareness of the Somerville Homeless Coalition!

On Saturday, May 17, from 10 am – 1 pm, The Wrap Around Project

will host the 3rd Annual Fiber Swap, an open exchange of all things related to craft and fiber. Bring items for donation, browse through great finds, and swap with your neighbors!

Admission to the event is free, but please bring a donation of canned goods or toiletries to support Somerville Homeless Coalition’s (SHC) Project SOUP, the local food pantry that provides weekly community dinners and delivers groceries to individuals, families, elderly, disabled and homebound people in our neighborhood. A full list of needs can be found here

We welcome yarn, knitting needles, fabric, nooks, thread, buttons, ribbon, and so much more. Items may be new or vintage, but must be clean and usable. Items can be brought directly to the swap on Saturday, May 10, OR dropped off in advance. If you have a large quantity to donate, please contact so that we may make appropriate arrangements.

Drop off dates and times:

Nave Gallery, Teele Square
–Wednesday, May 7, 6 pm-8 pm
–Friday, May 9, 3 pm-7 pm

Nave Annex, Davis Square
–Sunday, May 11, 2 pm-6-pm
–Wednesday. May 14, 6 pm-8 pm
–Thursday, May 15, 6 pm-8 pm

Anything left behind after the swap will be used to create items for the annual Wrap Around sale of handmade goods to benefit the Somerville Homeless Coalition, or used in upcoming public art installations throughout the Somerville.

Each November, the Nave Gallery hosts Wrap Around, an annual sale of handmade goods to benefit The Somerville Homeless Coalition (SHC). The Wrap Around Project, inspired from the success of the sale, is a yearlong campaign to support the work of the SHC, and raise awareness of the issue of homelessness in Somerville. In 2011 alone, SHC prevented 225 individuals (86 of whom were children) from becoming homeless through their case management and housing program services. Additionally, through programming like Project SOUP, 1,400 people had access to food. SHC is able to prevent one family from becoming homeless with as little as $833.
