Star Wars Week


Recurring Events

  • Space, with stars streaking past

Greetings Members of the Cambridge Branch of the Rebel Alliance,

As we all know, we have been in battle with a great and terrible enemy known as COVID-19. Our forces have fought heroically and have experienced both victories and defeats against this enemy throughout this past year.

The Idea Exchange Squadron in your Sector has planned a week for celebration for everyone as a reward for all the hard work and sacrifice your heroic Branch has demonstrated this past year. However, keep in mind these festivities will have to be done virtual and with social distancing in mind, because the battle is not over yet.

There are lots of events and activities that you can take part in:

Our Squadron also put together some Take and Make Kits and Crafty Creation Kits and there are many opportunities to learn more about the Star Wars Universe.

Star Wars Craft Contest

Calling all lovers of Star Wars (and crafting)!

Idea Exchange wants you to show your support for Star Wars Week by making Star Wars-themed crafts. Knitting, sewing, paper crafts and mixed material crafting - the possibilities are endless! (Just no edible items please).

There are three categories of judging:

  • Adult ages 20 and older
  • Teens ages 13-19
  • Kids ages 5-12

Each craft will be judged on quality, creativity and sheer awesomeness by our panel of judges. Top winners will win fun prizes and have their craft displayed at Idea Exchange for Star Wars Week starting the first week in May.

Please make sure your craft is clearly labelled with your name and age range and contact information. Completed crafts ready to be judged can be dropped off at any Idea Exchange branch starting April 6th. Please do not put through drop box. Crafts must be submitted on or before April 29th.

Are these crafts to be returned to the creator? I did a Star Wars collage awhile back that I'd like to submit, but I also would like it back if I were to submit it.

Great point! If you would like your craft back, please note that on the sheet with your contact information. Thanks!
