Fabric-a-brac returns to Palmerston North this Saturday 20 August for a morning of fabulous fabric and haberdashery shopping. Head along to Crossroads Hall at the corner of Church and Cook Streets from 9am till 12.30pm for your chance to score some crafty gems that have been hiding away in Manuwatu cupboards. There’s some amazing finds, especially from Levin and its surrounding regions that once hosted lots of textile factories.
Palmerston North has long been a veritable hub of quilting and crafty activity, as Ann Packer testifies to in Crafty Girls’ Road Trip. As well as being home to alt.shift.craft, there’s some great op shops and material shops. If you want to make a day of it, see Josie’s Things to do in Palmy page for some awesome ideas for a fabric-lovers weekend in Palmerston North, with a map of great little treasure troves to explore once you’ve spent your Fabric-a-brac budget.
