We have just come back from a really wonderful holiday, but already it is starting to seem like a misty dream. I guess if you had heaps of things go wrong on a holiday, you would not remember it as a misty dream!
Back to work at Achieve Australia’s Unique Social Enterprise: Fabric, Needlecraft and More. There is a lot of planning going on, firstly for a Fabric Sale which will give everyone the opportunity to purchase dress and upholstery fabrics for incredible bargain prices. The fabrics offered can be used for any sewing requirement, but the really great thing about the offerings is they do two things, raise funds for Achieve services, and make it possible for people to maybe begin a modest manufacturing enterprise. The fabrics on sale are very often very valuable, some fine ones are unobtainable today. There are cut lengths, and rolls and you will not be disappointed. For all kinds of sewing, making fashion garments, exciting cushions, children’s clothes, and fabrics suitable for all kinds of household sewing. What is marvellous, is there is a huge range of patterns, buttons, and zips, once again all at bargain prices. Costs today often make some ideas you may have beyond the reach of some, but this sale is a time to take advantage of the sale offerings and make your idea a reality. This sale will be at 112 Bowden Street, Meadowbank, Friday, 4th April until Friday, 11th April. Trading hours are 9 to 2pm, Fridays, Monday and Wednesday and the First Sunday of the Month, 9 to noon.
We are really ‘into’ the Social Inclusion program, and now have three young people with disability employed with us. For me, it is just wonderful to have fast and energetic people doing my bidding, and doing all the things one’s tired old body can’t cope with.
Apart from the exciting Fabric Sale, the other big news is we are now open on Wednesdays. So, trading days are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, 9-2pm and the first Sunday of the month 9am to12 noon.
This week we have been able to welcome two new volunteers, and should you be interested in joining this busy group, please phone Achieve Australia 1300 224 483, Fax 02 9887 3591, Or Level 1, Epping Rd, North Ryde 2113.
Do not forget your diary date for the Big Fabric Sale.
Until next time,
