Fabric-a-brac - April 2013

Hello World! I had a really great start to my weekend this weekend, I spent my Saturday morning volunteering on the Hospice Stall at fabric-a-brac. It was a good chance to do a good thing for a good cause, catch up with some fellow sewing/crafty ladies and of course do a spot of shopping.
Here's a small sample of some of the great fabric people donated for the hospice stall - so MUCH fabulous fabric and this was only one stall of many.


Here's the fabrics and patterns I picked up from fabric-a-brac - so many good things and I didn't even spend much money (promise!).





Fabric-a-brac is usually held in Newtown, but this time it was held in the old Dominion Museum at Massey University. It's a lovely building and the tomb of the unknown warrior and the National War Memorial is in from the Museum.


Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far - its my last weekend in Wellington before I spend three whole weeks in the USA! Yikes!

What a beautiful location to enjoy rummaging!! I'm entranced with all of your finds, I love the sparkly stretch jersey fabric but it's such a shame we only have about two months a year in which we can wear such fabrics. Aaaahhh you're a good sort to volunteer my lovely:) xoxo

wouldn't it be great if i mailed you the EXACT fabrics you chose at joanne fabrics somehow? it would be even better if they arrived in a comically over-sized mailing envelope! <3
