Australasia’s favourite fabric fiesta comes to Auckland.
A New Zealand fabric phenomenon that’s giving vintage textiles and haberdashery new life is finally being held in Auckland.
Fabric-a-brac is about bringing together the many ‘fabric-a-holics’ out there who have collected more fabric than they will ever be able to use, with others that want affordable quality fabrics.
Starting in 2009 in Wellington, the event, a hospice fundraiser, is now held in Sydney, Brisbane and Palmerston North. The event has raised over $10,000 for Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington alone. This August will be the first event in Auckland.
Stallholders take a table to sell their unwanted items. It’s a lovely, friendly, free event, with a great vibe. Much modern and vintage fabric and haberdashery, loved by grandmothers, but sitting in cupboards, is brought out to see the light of day, and be reused.
Fabric-a-brac are looking for stallholders for the Auckland event – email email@example.com
High-resolution photographs of previous events are available.
