Fabric-a-brac returns to the capital

Woohoo! International fabric event Fabric-a-brac is back in the capital, with new Wellington organisers and a new venue!

Head along to the Great Hall at Massey University (the old Dominion Museum building) to find some fabulous fabrics, haberdashery and other goodies from 9am to 12.30pm on Saturday 27 April. Tea, coffee and sweet treats will be on hand to keep fabric fans fuelled while hunting for treasures.

Organisers Michele and Sue are sewing and quilting enthusiasts who were keen to see the event continue in Wellington.

“After the founder decided not to run the event any more, we got in touch to see how we could help. With the help of lots of other volunteers we are delighted to keep the fabric lovers’ candle burning!”

Happy news for Wellington crafters and Hospice, for whom Fabric-a-brac has raised more than $10,000 since the first event was held in April 2009.

Originally from Wellington, Fabric-a-brac is now held in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and New Plymouth. For more information check out the Fabric-a-Brac website or their Facebook page.
