Yes – we have Fabric-a-bracs!

Marlborough is ON!

We have a new date for the Marlborough Fabric-a-brac! It is now taking place on 16 October (COVID Alert Levels permitting!). Same place, same time. We are super stoked we could make this happen for you. It IS dependant on us being in Alert Level 1. Unfortunately we can’t make the logistics work to fit with the Level 2 regulations. So fingers crossed!

Wellington is postponed.

COVID Alert Levels have also meant our Wellington event has been shifted out by a couple of months. We are Also hoping we’ll be in Alert Level 1 by then! New date is 13 November 2021 – same place (St Anne’s in Newtown), same time (10-2).

Auckland

Our Auckland coordinator is keeping a close eye on what is happening with Alert Levels and we’ll come back to you soon with what is happening with this event.

Right – fingers crossed we can get down to Level 1 for all of these. Can’t wait to see you all there!

COVID eh?

Hi everyone – well we all know are in Level 4 right now, and that unfortunately means that the Marlborough Fabric-a-brac will not take place on Sat 21 August.

We are looking to see if we can organise a postponement date, and we’ll let you know as soon as we can!

Stay safe…

And then there were three!

We are so excited, that we now have three confirmed dates for Fabric-a-bracs this year! Start clearing your stash, or saving your $$ to purchase your next project.

  • Blenheim 21 August
  • Wellington 18 September
  • Auckland 9 October

After the year that was 2020, it’s nice to have some normality back, in our event organising at least.

We’ve got a few variations on our poster design now – just to mix things up a little 🙂 We hope you like them!

See you there…

First South Island event for Fabric-a-brac!

We’re delighted to be able to invite you to our first event in the South Island!

Fabric-a-brac Marlborough has been a long time coming and we hope it’s the start of more events on the other side of Cook Strait! In August Blenheim will be hosting this fabric and sewing extravaganza. We are so excited to see what goodies come out of Marlborough sewing cupboards for this event.

You can have a table, or donate items to Hospice shops for them to sell on the day on the Hospice table.

If you’d like to have a table at the event to sell your stash, or you’d like to go on the mailing list – you can find out more on the Fabric-a-brac Marlborough page.

Fabric-a-bracs are go!

It’s been a bit of a wobbly start to 2021, with Alert Levels up and down like a yo-yo. But we are being ever the optimists, forging ahead with planning for two Fabric-a-bracs: Wellington and a new event in Marlborough!

Wellington is coming up on 20 March. So get your stash-filling momentum ready and book it in the diary!

The Marlborough event is the FIRST-EVER in the South Island. There are a few more details to confirm, but you can book a stall now.

These are both dependant on being at Alert Level One, but we are ever-hopeful and we can’t wait!

Fabric-a-brac Wairarapa

10am-2pm Saturday January 23, 2021

We’ve been doing really well in New Zealand, so we are hoping to run a few more Fabric-a-bracs this year, but of course they’ll be dependant on our COVID level. Hope you guys are all having a safe, fun summer and see you soon!

Some photos of previous events to remind you what to look forward to – oooooh!!

Squeezing in a Fabric-a-brac

You don’t need us to tell you – it’s been a tough old year. The only upside for some of us was that we managed to get lots of crafting, sewing and projects done during lockdown!

But we’ve missed not being able to bring you our beloved Fabric-a-brac events.

So we are delighted we’re managing to brighten up the second half of 2020 and get a Fabric-a-brac in before the year is out.

Fabric-a-brac Wellington will be on the 31 October at St Anne’s hall in Newtown.

Because of the difficulties of negotiating social distancing and other restrictions – it will only take place if we are at COVID Alert Level 1. So keep your fingers crossed!
