The Knitting Nook in Coventry, 3466 Main St., is having a unique benefit Jan. 31 from 4 to 6 p.m.
The Stash Swap is a fund-raising event to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. A minimum $5 donation is requested for participation.
Swap yarn will be collected from 4 to 4:30 p.m. and put in one of three different bins according to approximate quality and price range. Colored tickets will be issued equal to the number of skeins.
At 4:30 p.m., knitters can choose the same number of skeins from the bins.
