Trash to Treasure 2009
They say...one person's trash is another person's treasure. Since a Stockinette knitter would never throw good yarn away, the Stockinette members seemingly end up with a lot of unused and extra yarn in their stashes. So the Stockinettes came up with Trash to Treasure.
Trash to Treasure is our annual event where we auction off yarn, books, patterns, needles, etc.. All items are generously donated by Stockinette members. All sale proceeds from this fun event go directly to The Camellia Stockinettes library fund!
This year Trash to Treasure was held at our July Guild meeting. There were 11 lots of yummy yarn to bid on. Each lot of yarn contained at least a $50.00 value and some lots even contained over $100.00 worth of yarn and knitting supplies.

There were even fun raffle prizes,too! $1.00 gave you five lucky chances to win one of three fabulous raffle prize lots filled with yarn, patterns and more.
One raffle prize lot even contained two gorgeous garments knit by, our very own, Lorna Miser!
Here is a quick re-cap of how Trash to Treasure works:
Hey... I wanted that yarn!
And sometimes...there is even fighting over yarn!
Just kidding, of course!
