The sale is CASH ONLY and the minimum cut is 2 metres per fabric with an increment cut of 1 metre. ( please don’t ask for 2.75 metres as you will be refused politely)

Please all ensure you know how much fabric you need for your garments and what weight you should purchase. There will be no one on the day to advise you of what quantities you need to make a skirt/pants/jacket etc or what would be the best weight of fabric etc.
We have been very lucky to have this opportunity to access this wholesaler as the above prices are amazing. When I first visited this business to have a look,
I literally walked around the building drooling at the quality of fabric and the prices. Elsewhere similar Italian fabrics as detailed above sell from $40 – 90 p/m and upwards.
(The above criteria for this sale I have personally set in concrete as I want this sale to be accessible to everyone )
So please tell all your friends, work colleagues, family and EVERYONE/ANYONE please…..if you are on Facebook please also post these details.
Also enter the competition here to win $200 worth of fabric from this sale – plus private shopping access an hour before the warehouse doors open…!!!
Cheerio and Good luck to you all.
