This is a cafe with a difference; bring some clothes in good condition that you don't wear any more to swap for something you love, and/or bring an old favourite to be repaired or updated.
Stylist Jasmin Hall's presentation 'looking fabulous, whatever your shape' will help you with choosing the right clothes for your shape and size. She will help you to make the most of your clothes so you can reduce the amount you buy.
We will be looking for women off all shapes and sizes to demonstrate how to choose the right clothes for your shape and size; would you like to be one?
Victoria Frausin from The Sewing Cafe and Kerry Ollerenshaw from Cotton On will be there to help you alter, mend and make. For holey knit wear and other things, Linda Smalley from You Can Flourish will be there with a visible darning workshop. ...

Justine Mccoy from Body Shop at Home will be doing makeup... and there's a hot supper from the People's Cafe in the evening (vegan and veggie options) , with musical entertainment including great duo Wenmel ( Wendy Longworth guitar and vocals and Melvin Dodd trumpet) , and amazing flute/harp duo Bev Whelan and Celia Briar
