Our First Fabric Festival – It’s a very ROYAL occasion 👑👑

I would like to formally invite you to our first-ever Fabric Festival! Being the King’s Birthday weekend, the theme is ROYAL  CELEBRATION🫅

It also happens to coincide with 10 years of Loom fabrics so there will be a bit of a party 🎉

The outline of the Festival:

June 9 and 10:  Instore  at 242 Bong Bong St – the last opportunity to visit the store before we move everything out.

It will be held June 9th and 10th (Sun/Mon of the long weekend)

The rough outline so far is this:

A 2 day program of workshops showcasing a variety of Royally-themed creative sewing projects including some of the below ideas:

  • A wonderfully regal tweed cape
  • Luxurious Cashmere Wrap Lounging/Dressing Gowns
  • Grace Kelly styled pencil skirts and capri pants
  • Queen Elizabeth silk headscarves
  • Some fancy puffy sleeves
  • I’m hoping for a fabric fedora 🤩
  • Luxurious velvet cushions fit for royalty with golden and tasselled trims
  • Classic Corduroy Blazers suitable for rambling through the royal countryside and driving vintage range rovers over the palace grounds 🤪

Free Tickets for Frocktails High Tea will be available HERE – I’m trying to gauge numbers it would be really helpful to know if you intend to come for catering purposes – 😍

The schedule will run:

Sunday – 11-3.30

  • 11.30-12  workshop and demonstrations for the tweed cape INTERMEDIATE

The store will be open for regular fabric sales also during this time – you do not need a ticket to come and buy fabric but it would be really helpful to know if you are planning on coming to any of the workshops also so I know how many copies of notes etc to prepare. Because I haven’t done anything like this before it would be super helpful if you can let me know which workshops you plan on attending.

Thanks!
