FABULOUS

The Merville Grand Mothers are hosting a fabulous fabric sale this Saturday at St. George’s United Church in Courtenay at the corner of Fitzgerald and Fifth.

Tailors, fabric artists, quilters, sewers and creators will find bargains among the beautiful bounty of fabric donated by the Comox Valley community. A huge variety of cottons, quilting fabrics, wool, exotic prints, fleece, upholstery, charming children’s prints as well as threads, notions and patterns await you.

The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fabrics are pre-measured and priced mostly $1 to $2 per metre. Bring cash or cheques, sorry, no credit/ debit cards, and bags to carry your treasures home.

The Merville Grand Mothers work with the Stephen Lewis Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the African Grandmothers Campaign. These African grandmothers are at the heart of their continent’s response to AIDS.

Fundraising efforts go directly to the SLF Grandmothers Campaign, which supports grassroots projects in 15 sub-Saharan countries.

Do not miss this opportunity to both learn about the Stephen Lewis Foundation and, at the same time, find some fabulous fabric bargains. The doors at St. George’s United Church will open at 10 a.m. sharp on Nov. 2.
