GANG Fabulous Fabric Frenzy

The Grandmothers of Alberta for a New Generation (GANG) are again busy preparing for our sixth annual Fabulous Fabric Frenzy. At this Frenzy, GANG will sell donated fabric, yarn and notions to the public for very low prices. All sale profits will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Grandmother to Grandmother project.  This project helps support grandmothers in East Africa who are raising grandchildren who have been orphaned due to AIDS.

We gladly accept donations of fabric, yarn and sewing notions. We are not able to take books or patterns.

So, if you are down-sizing or just reducing your stash, please consider passing it on to our very worthy cause.

Commencing January 11, 2018, we will be accepting donated materials from 10:00 am to 2 pm on most Thursdays at Strathearn United Church, 8510 – 95 Ave., Edmonton. Please phone Ev at 780-434-0825 a few days prior to confirm that someone will be there.

If you are dropping off a donation, please use the alley door and ring the buzzer. Or, if your donation is only a few bags or boxes, I would be happy to receive it at the meetings in January, February and March.

Our sale this year will be on April 21, 2018 at Strathearn United Church.

We are anticipating a bigger than ever sale this year! Our inventory will include a wide range of fabrics that will appeal to home sewers, dressmakers, quilters, knitters and crafters. We look forward to seeing you at our Fabulous Fabric Frenzy. Please watch for our posters in the community and the ad in the Country Register in March for sale times.
