Fabric-a-brac is coming.  What is it?  An event, run twice a year in Wellington (and also at various times in Auckland, Palmerston North and Sydney). 

Fabric hoarderslovers can take the chance to de-stash and clear out some cupboard space, and other fabric hoarderslovers can score some awesome, vintage, modern, and otherwise interesting fabric (and trims, and other assorted haberdashery items).

If the lure of fabric wasn't enough, it's also for a good cause - the proceeds of stall fees and sales of donated fabric go to (I think) Mary Potter Hospice.

I went to the last one in May, and even though I made the beginner error of not lining up at the door to bag all the best bargains first, I still came away with a couple of good buys.

The organisers had a bit of last minute running around when their venue had to shut down, so the details are now:  Saturday 10 November 2012, 12 noon to 3 pm, Berhampore School, 105 Britomart Street.

I am rather please with the new venue, as it is practically in sight of my house.  I will definitely be there this time, as soon as it opens.  If you are in Wellington, I would love to see you there (leave me a comment if you are going).  Just don't get between me and the fabric - I have elbows and I'm not afraid to use them.  Kidding.  Sort of.
