The First Samples Fabric Bazaar will play matchmaker between local Austin designers who have fabrics to sell and seamsters on the prowl for unique and high quality apparel fabrics. There are so few places in Austin to buy fabric aside from the usual big box craft and sewing stores, and even fewer places that offer unique and fine apparel fabrics. We have a large handful of designers participating in this first event and if it goes well, we will hold this event monthly and bring in more and more consignees-for-a-day. More fabrics, more selection, more fun!
When the Fabric Bazaar is in full swing, we will be able to accept fabric, trim and notion consignment for a day from anyone. For example, right now we have a friend in India who says that she can get the most exquisite silk fabrics for about $.50 per yard but just doesn't have a reason to buy alot of it because she can only sew so much. So... if she does end up buying more than she could use, she can utilize the Fabric Bazaar to share her surplus. She makes money, we get access to exotic fabrics.
Seamsters! Let go of your fabric stashes that stymie you and curtail your fashion progress and update your fabric inventory at the same time. Meetup members! Join us for the first hour of the sale, open only to you from 8-9 a.m., to preview and buy before the general public arrives. We'll greet you with tasty breakfast goodies and plenty of fresh coffee to start your Saturday right.
Tell all of your friends about this. Everyone is invited! To learn how you can get your fabric into the Bazaar, come to the first Fabric Bazaar and get your "how to" instruction pack.
