If you’re on pins and needles waiting to start your next sewing project, you might find some inspiration at the Weaverville Library’s Clean Slate Craft Swap. From Saturday, Dec. 30 through Saturday, Jan. 13, you can drop off any unfinished crafts, donate extra supplies, and trade projects with fellow quilters and cross-stitchers.

Whether you’re a savant with the serpentine stitch or new to needlework, the swap is open for all to start the new year with a new project.

Not ready to part ways with your work just yet? Work on finishing your knitted creations today, Tuesday, Dec. 19 at the Quilting Bee, a monthly collaborative event from the Asheville Quilt Guild and the East Asheville Public Library. Stop by the library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with your sewing machine in tow to work on your own design or assist with a community project.
