Ashburton’s Sinclair Centre will be a treasure trove for people who produce hand-crafted items next week when Altrusa International of Ashburton holds its annual craft and fabric bazaar.
Over several months, club members have been picking up donated fabric, wool, tapestries, embroidery silks and many other items used in hand-crafts.
Teams have spent hours sorting, folding and pricing a huge range of items. As well as craft such as knitting and sewing there are supplies for embroidery and tapestry, scrapbooking and card-making and spinning.
There are even partially completed projects, sewing machines and a loom.
The doors to the bazaar will open at 9am on Saturday, July 7 and close at 4pm.
It is the fourth bazaar held by the club. Proceeds have been used to support a number of projects in the Mid Canterbury community including funding for the Kiwi Can project in local schools, literacy resources for schools, and a defibrillator at Park Street Day Care.
