Wairarapa Fabric Fair 2020

August 7, 2020 August 2020 No Comments

Great News!

All sewers, knitters, crafters get out your diary and keep the 5th of September free, for this year’s Wairarapa Fabric Fair is just over a month away!  Once again we are holding the event at South End School Hall, High Street South, Carterton, from 10 am to 2pm.  

Time to clear out that stash you have been meaning to get around to and donate it to our charity table or hire a table and sell it on the day!  King Street Artworks, which helps support people Wairarapa wide, will receive the profits from the sales tables, donated goods table and cafe!  

Carterton Central Lions will be running the FAB Cafe again this year! They did such a great job last year, a cup of tea or coffee along with some home baking will be available to purchase while you browse.

Do your scissors need sharpening? Well we are excited to announce that Mr Sharp from Bulls, with his mobile scissor sharpening service will be there, so just bring them along on the day (he even does pinking shears) and he will sharpen them while you browse. Check out his prices on his website www.sharpy.co.nz.
