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."  Last year's event generated more than $38,000 and helped to fund critical social support services in Allegheny County.

Donations of fabric and notions are still much in need. For more information contact Leah Horcholic at 412-446-1534. From March 15th through the 17th, the 9th Annual Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival, hosted by the Mars Four Points Sheraton is once again serving as a donation drop off site for Fabric Fair.  For more information log onto
