how to donate fabric

In Wellington

If you don’t want to take out a table, but have a few pieces of fabric you’d be happy to donate, you can drop them off before the event to raise money for Hospice ( in Wellington Mary Potter Hospice). I have a special association with the Hospice, as my dad was there in his final days. They do a fantastic job.

Drop donations off at Mary Potter Hospice in Mein St, Newtown.


PLEASE quality fabric or notions only – we won’t be able to sell fabric that is in too rotten a state…e.g.  ripped and stained. Old duvet covers also not welcome! (yes we did get one of those last time). Think about whether you would want to buy it back or not! If you have a chance to measure it, great, if not, no worries, we can do that. If you have odds and ends of COOL fabric, that’s fine, people may like it for quilting or applique etc. so feel free to drop that off too!


Donations of fabric and sewing supplies for Fabric-a-brac can be dropped off at the Hospice Marlborough shop in Redwoodtown from now until the week before the event.    Just leave a note or mention to the team that it is intended for Fabric-a-brac.

In Palmerston North

  5. Hi there. I have a great fabric stash that I’d be delighted to donate for the hospice. Is it too late for this Saturday? Thanks.

    • Hi Joy
      We are really overloaded with fabric donations for this event, I would really love to say yes, but I think you might have to hang onto it for next time now – I will put you on the mailing list for next time! Thanks so much.
