2021 Stash Sale Roundup
“If you were among the fortunate 60+ members and guests to attend this year’s Stash Sale on July 6th, you were surrounded by a colorful sea of beautiful yarns of all types from around the world in the back yard of Debbe Deverill. Assorted UFO’s, a variety of completed garments, tools, books and bags, as well as yarn, all went to new homes.
“Thank you to everyone who donated yarn and objects from their personal stashes and to the hardworking volunteers: Martha Parks, Shirley Fishman and Anu Gouthu (neighbor) who sorted, bagged, priced and re-bagged lots and lots of yarn with Barbara and myself, and then helped to transport it back and forth to and from the Guild storage locker (arranged by Sydnie Wauson). And to all of the day-of-workers: Agnes Gale, Alexis Wilson [friend], Bethany Carnett, Carol Myers, Diana Rathbun, Gina Molise, Linda Hart, Liz Woodward, Lois Chaddock, Pat Nascenzi, Rose Babayan, Sandra Carlson, Sue Zois, Tania Marshall, and Zita Gardner, plus the buyers at the Stash Sale. You all did a wonderful job and made it an enjoyable experience for Barbara Wright and myself as your Co-chairs. Thank you!! We also owe a debt of gratitude to Kerry Nare, our Webmaster who helped to encourage members to donate their yarn, reminded us to attend the event with inviting script and photos.
“All of this hard work was made sweeter when we found out we netted over $6,000.00 for our Guild! Congratulations to everyone! A big bonus after the sale was that we were able to gift lots of yarn to our own Guild philanthropy and three other philanthropies as well as donating to the Encinitas Community Resource Center who disbursed yarn to be sold at their stores throughout San Diego (they were thrilled with the two car loads of yarn and items that were dropped off). The remaining books will be available in our Guild library, AND we have several bags of beautiful yarns set aside for a future sale to our Guild members – stay tuned.”
