What is it?
This Restash event is a fabric and paper pattern swap that’s also a fundraiser for Home & Family society. The basic idea is that you bring fabric & printed patterns that you no longer want or need, and swap them for things you love more!
How is it a fundraiser?
Money from your entry fee and also from the raffle (which currently has over $300 worth of prizes) will go directly to Home & Family Society, who support vulnerable children & families in Christchurch.
What’s the plan?
In the style of the Melbourne Restash events, please bundle and label with fibre content (if known) and meterage (i.e linen 95cm x 140cm).
We will arrange all the fabric on tables by fabric type (knit, woven, etc), we’d be happy also to take scraps (at least 30cm x 30cm) for a separate ‘scrap’ table and also a table for hard-copy patterns.
If you wanted to drop off your fabric during the week leading up to the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate.
Basic tickets and the entry will go directly to Home & Family Society Christchurch, but everyone attending should bring 1 item to swap. For every five dollars paid above the first $5 entry fee, you’ll receive 1 entry into our raffle (read more about the prizes below).
Where is it?
The Restash will be at Home & Family Society’s building at 319 St Asaph Street, in central Christchurch. There’s street parking around, or it’s about a 10-minute walk to the bus interchange. Please ignore Google Maps, which places 319 east of Barbadoes, when we are actually West of Barbadoes, on St Asaph Street!Please follow and like us:
