Sydney Fabric Destash – wrap up

By Susan | Comments: 5 | April 4, 2016

Yesterday was such a fun day! The Sydney Spoolettes got together for a fabric destash.


The concept was super simple, bring pieces you no longer want and swap them for something you do like and all the leftovers go to charity.





Add in a wonderful array of delicious food everyone brought with them and it was a great way to pass a morning. Talking fabrics, patterns, sewing plans and identifying mystery fabrics.



Huge amounts of thanks go to Martine and Pat from Home Industry for hosting us and Melanie for organising. Also a heartfelt thank you to the amazing generosity and kindness of all the Sydney Spoolettes for bringing such an array of fabrics and baked goods.

Cannot wait till the next one as this one was so much fun! If you are in Sydney or the surrounds and would like to join a fun laid back sewing crowd, come and join the Spoolettes.

    Looks like so much fun! (We had a pretty fun pattern and fabric swap up here in Brisbane last weekend too ;o)

    It was a lovely day. And I’ve already found/remembered a whole lot more stuff to bring to the next destash!

    Hi Susan, I’m not on Facebook but would be interested in being part of the spoolettes. Is there another way to get information about what’s happening? Tanya
