Craftsmen, get ready. Hundreds of yards of fabric, quilt pieces, ribbon and lace will be up for grabs at the Grannies a Gogo fundraising event. And all this for a great cause.
The Fabric Extravaganza is scheduled to take place on September 25 from 9 pm to 2 pm at People Place and 100 percent of proceeds will go to support AIDS bereaved “gogos” or grandmothers, and their grandchildren, in South Africa.
The Fabric Feast, as spokesperson Susan Fenner called it, includes cotton, synthetics, flannel, fleece, wool, knits, costume fabrics and more. All are labeled with measurements.
“There are every color and every pattern imaginable,” she said. “Anyone who enjoys sewing, quilting, costume making or craftsmanship will be delighted with his eyes. “
Plus, the material prices alone are a reason to check it out. Grocery bags filled with scraps of fabric, for example, cost $ 3 a bag.
COVID-19 protocols are respected and masks are mandatory.
