Time for a crafty cupboard cleanout


It is time for the knitters, sewers and crafts people toclean out their cupboards and pass on their unwanted tools or material to others who will have ause for them.
Fabric, wool, trimmings or patterns can be found in many homes where they sit waiting to be made into a special article.
Now Altrusa International of Ashburton want to match up the unused materials with buyers who have the time and the skill to put it to use.
The club will stage another Craft Bazaar in the Sinclair Centre on Saturday, August 6, when hundreds of metres of material, hundreds of balls of wool, along with felt, needles, crochet yarn, embroidery silks, patterns, buttons, lace and lots of other craft supplies will be sold to raise money for use in the community.
People with unwanted material or craft supplies can leave them at Smith and Church Appliances in Moore Street, at Resene in Burnett Street, at Scrap Happy Crafts, in the Tinwald Shopping Centre or drop it at the depot along from the Ashburton Learning Centre at the corner of Park and Havelock Streets on Thursday between 1pm and 3pm.
There Altrusa members will sort and price it ready for the bazaar.
The club also inherited remaining goods from the last Stash Rehash which raised funds for Arthritis Canterbury.
