Fabric-a-brac is on once again – at the St Anne’s Hall in Emmett Street in Newtown on Saturday 13 November from 9am to 1pm. This must surely be the number 1 event for vintage fabric lovers in Wellington. It’s your chance to buy those bits and pieces that someone else has taken the time to find, only to realise they’re probably never going to get round to using them.
This time round some knowledgeable speakers will give tips on what to make with your booty and share their collections. Mindy from the Juniper Gallery in Newtown will give a talk on Christmas present ideas while textile expert and writer Ann’s Packers session is entitled ‘Look what I found! Textile treasure finds’. Sounds right up our collective alleys. Mindy is on from 10-11 and 12-1 and Ann is from 11-11.20. There’s a $5 charge for these, which goes to the Mary Potter Hospice. Entry to the market is free.
As well as fabric there’s food, coffee and the chance to meet like-minded people. Not to be missed.
Other fabricy/crafty events coming up include:
- A fabric auction at Juniper Gallery in Newtown on Sunday 14 November from 7 – 8pm. $2 entry and all proceeds go to Newtown Plunket. Fabrics for these events have been donated by a host of local designers, including Voon, Alexandra Owen and 27 names.
- A craft market is on at Pataka Museum in Porirua on Saturday 20 November from 10 am to 3pm.
- Craft 2.0’s Christmas edition rolls around on Saturday December 18. As per usual, it’s on at the NewDowse in Lower Hutt from 9.30am to 3pm.
- I think the awesome Knack market in my very own Berhampore is also on for the Christmas season, though just when, I cannot ascertain. Look out for posters or check a bit later in the month http://knackcraft.blogspot.com/ STOP PRESS: have just been informed that the Knack is on 27 November at Berhampore School in Britomart Street. It runs from 9.30 to 2.30.
Happy shopping! Add a comment if you know of any others events that will interest Gloryboxers.
