Sydney, we have some great news! We’re bringing another Fabric-a-brac to you, in the form of a pop-up market! It will be held in Union St, Newtown on Saturday 25th May, between 10am – 2pm.
If you’d like to be a stallholder, email email@example.com and get in quick! If you have fabric to donate, please get in contact too. More exciting announcements to come!
For those of you who haven’t noticed (erhem!) the Brisbane fabric-a-brac is back!
August 25, 2012 – see the Brisbane page. More to come soon!
If you’re still hankering for some beautiful fabric at bargain prices, get yourself down to Theodore Bruce auction house this Sunday 20th May to pick up vintage ribbons, braid, thread, lace, linen. Eleanor Keene, Historic Clothing & Textiles Specialist has been cataloguing the textile related items up for sale from the closed Berrima shop Peppergreen (when she’s not helping us raise funds for hospice!). Get yourself to Theodore Bruce, 31 Queen Street, Beaconsfield 2015.
A huge thanks to everyone who attended our Sydney Fabric-a-brac on Sunday 6th May 2012. What a huge, fun-filled day it was! Fabric was sold, conversations were started, workshops were run, food was eaten, music was played… and money was raised! In total, we raised $1,200 for Sacred Heart Hospice. Black Star Pastry and The Sydney Etsy Team generously donated not only their time, but also cold hard cash, to our fundraising efforts. HIGH FIVES!
We also received a super generous donation from stallholders Eleanor Keene and Helen who were selling fabrics from the closed Berrima shop Peppergreen. The ladies donated ALL the sales from her table to hospice. How lucky are we?!
Thanks for all your fabulous feedback, we hope you enjoyed the day! The question on everyone’s lips was “when’s the next one?”. There will be another Fabric-a-brac in 2012, so stay tuned to this blog or our Facebook page. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on our mailing list.

Have you heard that we have teamed up with Black Star Pastry AND The Sydney Etsy Team to bring you a Fabric-a-brac experience to remember? Black Star Pastry will be selling delicious treats and keeping you fuelled while you shop. The Sydney Etsy Team will be running crafty workshops to inspire you and maybe even give you some ideas on how to use your newly purchased goodies. Both are helping us raise money for hospice – gee whiz! Is there anything these guys don’t do?!
