Fabulous Fibre Stash Sale & Giveaway

Here’s your chance to reduce, increase or revitalize your fibre stash! Following SOFAAR’s AGM on March 11, we’re promoting a fabulous fibre stash bash. There will be tables of fibre supplies for sale and giveaway. The public is invited and we’ll advertise the event widely. Here’s how you can participate:

  • Reserve an individual table to sell your work, or share one with a friend (you work out the sharing details). Cost for a 6-ft table is $10, and you tend your own table.
  • Donate items to SOFAAR. We’ll sort them into “sale” and “give-away” categories, display them and staff the tables. Funds raised from SOFAAR sales will help finance our programs for the year.
  • Use the opportunity to add to your stash at bargain prices! ·Tell your friends about the sale and encourage them to come.


If you want to reserve a table, contact by February 28. If you have items to donate to the SOFAAR tables, please get them to Christine Igot ( by February 24.
