March 10th Sale a Success

Thanks to all the shoppers that came out to support us and thanks especially to our star volunteer, Stacey, who knows lots about fabric and sewing and was a pleasure with whom to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon.

We had a visit from a charming fellow involved in the upcoming Vancouver Maker Faire who was looking for fabric to decorate his fund-raising event.  As per their website:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect, and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.

We also had a visit from fairjake, a local accessory designer committed to using locally produced and/or sourced materials. Check out their beautiful flower clips.

Remember that we’d love for  you to send us photos of any projects you makers have created with fabric from Our Social Fabric.
