Popular Australasian fabric fair set to come to Auckland

Press Release – Bubbalino
A New Zealand fabric phenomenon that’s giving vintage textiles and haberdashery new life is being held in Auckland in August.

Fabric-a-brac is about bringing together the many ‘fabric-a-holics’ out there who have collected more fabric than they will ever be able to use, with others that want affordable quality fabrics. All to raise money for local Hospice.

Starting in 2009 in Wellington, the event, a Hospice fundraiser, is now held in Sydney, Brisbane and Palmerston North. The event has raised over $10,000 for Hospice in New Zealand so far. This August will be the first event in Auckland.

Auckland organiser Vanessa Rehm of children’s clothing range Bubbalino says she jumped at the chance to help make the event happen in Auckland. “I have friends that go to the Wellington event and just rave about it, and the founder, Josie Brennan has had heaps of requests to start one up in Auckland. I am delighted to be able to help that happen!”

Stallholders take a table to sell their unwanted items. It’s a lovely, friendly, free event, with a great vibe. Much modern and vintage fabric and haberdashery, loved by grandmothers, but sitting in cupboards, is brought out to see the light of day, and be reused.

The Auckland event will raise money for Mercy Hospice in Ponsonby.
