CARNEGIE, Pa., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Do your spring-cleaning, get a bargain and support your neighbors in need. Patterns, beautiful upholstery, elegant fabric, yarns and notions at discount prices are only a few things in store at the upcoming 25th Annual Salvation Army Fabric Fair. Sponsored by the organization's Greater Pittsburgh Women's Auxiliary, not only is this event a bargain, but a major fundraiser benefiting local families who are hurting. Fabric Fair is slated for Saturday, April 6th from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm at the South Park Home Economics Building, located on Brownsville Road.
"This event draws a multitude of donors and shoppers from all over Western Pennsylvania," said Major Donna Brown, The Salvation Army's Women's Auxiliary Secretary. "Proceeds from Fabric Fair go a long way to help hundreds of Pittsburgh-area needy families."

Donations of fabric and notions are still much in need. For more information contact Leah Horcholic at 412-446-1534.
