CARNEGIE, Pa., Feb. 19, 2014 /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 26th 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 5th 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 and beyond," said Major Jody Kramer, The Salvation Army's Divisional Women's Auxiliary Secretary. "Proceeds from Fabric Fair create a win-win situation where the shoppers get great bargains while donating to the work of The Salvation Army in Allegheny County." Last year's event generated more than $36,000 and helped to fund critical social support services in Allegheny County.
As the event is donation based, donated fabric and related items are always in need. For more information on the Fabric Fair contact Leah Horcholic at 412-446-1534. The 9th Annual Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival held from March 14th through the 16th at the Mars Four Points Sheraton, is once again serving as a donation drop off site for Fabric Fair.
