Restash 2017 (Melbourne)


For those feeling a little overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the state of their stash, we invite you to join us at the second annual Restash 2017 (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 1st
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.

Rehome anything that takes your fancy.  At the conclusion of the day, excess items will be donated to charity.

And those who want to make a day of it, there are several nearby sewing retailers…

  • Do we have to RSVP? If so can I please RSVP for 3? Thanks Anna and team!

    • No need to RSVP this year Kat. We found that last year it was a stream of people coming and going for the two hours so we didn’t come close to reaching the room capacity.

  • Can’t wait! 🙂

  • Fabulous Anna, look forward to coming along this year!

  • Loved the last one – was such great motivation to clean out my shelves. Took six bags and promised dear-one i would only bring one bag home – I kept to that but it was a rather fat little bag.
    Was great to see pieces that i had hoarded for years being snapped up and knowing they would finally be put to good use. Keen to go through cupboards again.

  • Just catching up on blog reading now so only just found out about restash! Had a great time last year & have a box of fabric ready to bring along this year!
