Although the main idea is that fabric-a-brac is about fabric, stallholders can sell patterns/buttons/trims/ accessories – plus sewing machines and tools for sewing – as long as it’s sewing-related and not a finished product. I have had a few enquiries about wool, and I think that’s fine, just shouldn’t be the dominating factor of your stall. NO NO NO finished items please – there are plenty of craft fairs you can go to!
Here’s a list I’ve put together to give you an idea. But this is NOT exhaustive so check if you are not sure:
- purses or bags
- made-up tapestries or embroideries (doilies are the exception)
- Fabric flowers
- tape measures/scissors/sewing tools/sewing machine/needles
- embroidery cotton
- wool/knitting needles/knitting patterns
- Textile-related books
