Fabric Spark Sample Sale
January 20, 2018 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
On January 20, at Cosburn United Church, Fabric Spark is hosting a large fabric “sample sale”. One hundred per cent of the proceeds will go to Beautiful World Canada (BWC). We have had fabric donations from all of our sales reps, manufacturers and distributors so there will be lots of modern, license, novelty and batiks to choose from. There is really something for everyone! We have Cotton + Steel, Moda, Free Spirit, Andover, Windham, Michael Miller and lots lots lots more! The fabric samples will be priced to move! We want to raise money for a great organization.
BWC is a fantastic organization that gives comprehensive scholarships to the most impoverished girls in Africa (Uganda, Rwanda, Sierra Leone). BWC focusses on secondary and post secondary education, which are severely underfunded by other NGOs. These scholarships include tuition, all education costs, residential costs and even include mentoring, job search coaching, and emotional support. Many of these girls are AIDS and Ebola orphans, or former abducted child soldiers. They come from multi-generational poverty, so education is their only chance to break the cycle and create a future for themselves and their communities.
