We have two bits of exciting news to share today – and the first is that we have a confirmed date for the Greytown Fabric-a-brac! Yippee!
This is the second of our Greytown (Wairarapa) events and will be held on Saturday 2 July 2022. It’s on at the same time as the fantastic Greytown Festival of Christmas, which means there are heaps of things to do in town over the month.
Put it in the diary now to join us to get some great fabric finds 🙂
The Wellington team did an awesome job of The Wellington event again – raising over $4,700 for Mary Potter Hospice! An amazing total, given because of COVID safety we were restricted both in the number of stallholders, and in those that could be in the hall at any one time (thanks for all your patience on that BTW!). We had such a fun time and can’t wait to do it all again later this year!
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).
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!
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.
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!
