Restash 2020 : Melboune Fabric Swap Event
For those feeling a little overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the state of their stash, we invite you to join us at the fifth annual Restash (Melbourne).
What is a Restash? It’s a fabric, notions, yarn, pattern and handmade clothes 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 them (restash). This is a free event, but we do ask that you bring at least one item to swap.
DATE: Saturday February 15th
TIME: 2pm – 4pm
LOCATION: Fairfield Community Room (opposite Fairfield Library – 121 Station Street, Fairfield)
RSVPs: Not required
Bring your unwanted fabric, notions, yarn, patterns and handmade clothes. Can you please bundle fabric and label with type (if known) and metreage (width and length). We will have a section just for fabric scraps (hooray!). Fabric scraps will need to be at least 30cm x 30cm and will not require bundling or labelling. Please bring hangers for any of your handmade clothes that need a new home… we’ll supply a clothes rack.
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.
