And all those beads and miscellaneous materials you bought, trying to harness you inner Martha? Well, get those boxes of yardage out of the closet - it's time to unload your gear at the Fabric Swap Meet Saturday (April 23) at the Ralph Thornton Centre (765 Queen East) from 2 to 4 pm. Price your goods, then shop or talk shop with like-minded crafters. Anything that doesn't get sold can go back home with you or be donated to charity. Non-perishable food items will also be accepted for the Daily Bread Food Bank . Can't transport your goods? Call Annika at 416-778-6318 for help.
