Restash 2016 (Melbourne)
For those feeling a little overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the state of their stash, we invite you to join us at the inaugural Restash 2016 (Melbourne).
What is a Restash? It’s a fabric, notions, yarn and pattern swap… the chance for people to give-away items that they no longer have a need for (destash) and for fellow crafters to take home items that inspire (restash). This is a free event, but we do ask that you bring at least one item to swap.
DATE: Saturday July 9th
TIME: 2pm – 4pm
LOCATION: Fairfield Community Room (opposite Fairfield Library – 121 Station Street, Fairfield)
Bring your unwanted fabric, notions, yarn and patterns. Can you please bundle fabric and label with type (if known) and meterage (width and length).
Browse while chatting with fellow crafters. Sweet treats supplied, grab a take-away hot beverage from one of the many local cafes.
Rehome anything that takes your fancy. At the conclusion of the day, excess items will be donated to charity.
RSVP via my contacts form and use the word ‘restash’ in the subject line if you are planning on attending. We need to know approximate numbers to ensure we are appropriately covered for public liability insurance.
