SwapJam: Craft Supply Swap

  • CraftJam Pop-Up 103 Sullivan Street New York, NY 10012 United States (map)

Did you start the new year with the same old realization “I have too many craft supplies”? What we wouldn’t give to have a craft room full of supplies, but sadly New York apartments are hardly conducive to that dream - not in size nor in price. So instead of storing all of those materials under your bed, in your closet, or spread all over your desk (which is really our favorite method TBH), bring them to CraftJam and swap out your supplies for new-to-you materials from other Jammers in NYC!

If you’ve been binging Tidying Up With Mari Kondo too, then you know how liberating it can be to get rid of some things, so join us to unload a bit of that extra weight. However, we can’t promise you won’t go home with more...

How it works

Check in your bag of supplies with a CraftJam team member. All supplies will be spread out according to type and you can peruse and choose your new supplies at your pace.

What supplies to bring?

Here are some suggestions for supplies perfect for swapping:

  • Yarn/Thread

  • Tools (scissors, knitting needles, paint brushes)

  • Lettering and calligraphy tools

  • Paints

  • Beads

  • Patterns

  • Craft books

Some Ground Rules:

  • Please make sure everything you bring is in good condition

  • Only take as much as you bring

  • Any small items should be bundled in small bags

We’re BYOB friendly so make sure to bring some wine and a friend or two along with your supplies for swapping. All leftover supplies will be donated!
