Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild
Annual Off the Shelf Holiday Exchange

December 2012

Members use materials off their shelf to craft a handmade gift then get together to ‘exchange’ their gifts. This involves drawing numbers, selecting a wrapped gift then having some person down the line steal your treasure and it’s back to the pile you go! Tensions run high, but the fabulous pot luck meal and fellowship with good friends soften the cut throat activity!
