Vintage fabrics take centre stage at the biannual Fabric-a-Brac sale in Newtown this weekend.

A portion of sale proceeds are given to Mary Potter Hospice.

Spokeswoman Josie Brennan said the event had raised $10,000 for the hospice since 2009.

The Fabric-a-Brac fundraising sale, which started in Wellington, has since spread to Brisbane and Sydney.

As part of the event this weekend, there will be two fabric tutorial workshops on May 18 with Good Morning host Fifi Colston, and Tinyhappy blog writer Melissa Wastney.

The sale will feature 1920s lace, fabric from the 1950s and 1960s, more than 2000 European buttons and hundreds of lengths of bargain fabric.

There will be more than 40 stallholders ranging from private sewers to clothing, accessory and upholstery businesses.

The cash-only sale will run from 9am till 12.30pm at St Anne's Hall, Newtown, on May 19.

- Tutorial workshops must be pre-booked on: fabricabrac.co.nz.
