cloth fabric has just moved into the ex-Ferrari showroom in Darlinghurst and owner Julie Paterson is putting on a crafty show for its opening by Lord Mayor Clover Moore.
With wraparound floor to ceiling windows and a leafy, accessible courtyard out the front, the new space is perfect for the community projects cloth has planned for Spring. Upcycling workshops with the City of Sydney, a guerrilla style public knit-punk project and craft hangouts with Google+ are all on the agenda.
The new cloth shop will be officially opened on Wednesday 29 August at 6pm by Clover Moore and Steve Pozel from Object Gallery. Julie is looking for helpers to help make the area look as crafty and colourful as possible and has been very busy herself, painting the RTA box for one thing!
But she’d love more crafty goodness to hang from the trees at the opening and really put on a show. Bring your knitted squares to dress the trees, your crocheted scarves to accessorise bike racks, your bunting to garland the lamp posts and your pom poms for street jewellery
If you can help, please take along old scarves, pom poms or pieces of knitting to the shop between 11am and 4pm tomorrow! For more information and an invitation to the event, email
