Fabric-a-brac-PN logo FINAL.jpgLast chance!

4 November sees the last Fabric-a-brac of the year, this time in Palmerston North. (note that the local Guardian paper said it was THIS weekend (14 October) which is incorrect.

We have stallholders from businesses, charities and of course the lovely stallholders who need to move their stash. Special mention of the stallholders travelling down with her stash from Whakatane just for this event!

The Hospice table will be groaning with goodies and we’ll have tea, coffee and sweet treats, all to raise money for Arohanui Hospice. Can’t wait to see you there!

If you have any questions email us.

With a lovely bunch of people, fabric, yummy sweet treats and tons of fabric – we’re looking forward to an awesome Saturday on the 31st in Palmerston North.

If you are from out of the region grab a friend and make a road trip of it. We can recommend op shopping when you’ve had your fill of fabric (if ever!)

We have had a huge amount of fabric donated to Hospice and there are a number of stalls with ‘nana stashes’ so there’s bound to be some amazing finds.

Check out the stuff.co.nz article from today. Thanks Nick McBride for the write up!
