Every year the Presbyterian Support Service of Otago holds a Fabric Sale – they collect items including buttons, patterns, wool, and, of course, fabric across the year and then hold an enormous 4 hour sale. It is complete chaos – and I don’t mean the organising, it’s extremely well organised, I mean the buyers. I think I spent the first ten minutes trying to squeeze my way around the tables and tables of fabrics that were completly surrounded by wild eyed bargain hunters, scratching their way through like fabric was the only way to keep them alive. It was kind of crazy – I’m not the biggest fan of crowds at the best of times, so found it hard not to just leave. However, there seemed to be a few other shoppers like me, that looked at you and smiled with the “isn’t this just insane” look, and who probably thought, like me, there’s plenty enough for s all. It was worth it, without a doubt, I came away with some really beautiful pieces, and am feeling inspired about what these lovely prints will become. I think I also discoverd the other reason that the sale is yearly, once a year is quite enough thanks!
