The Pyrmont community has a great opportunity to do their Christmas shopping for beautiful and unique gifts in a relaxed environment without having to drive to the shops. Not only that, but shoppers will also be assisting those less fortunate than ourselves, and be able to taste some fine Australian wines! On Saturday 5 December, Nurturing Threads and Tabitha Foundation Australia will be holding a Silk Fair and Wine Tasting at The Station, Bowman Street, Pyrmont in support of Tabitha Cambodia.

Tabitha Cambodia is a not-for-profit NGO that was established in 1994 to assist Cambodians to attain an improved quality of living and sustainability by helping them help themselves with dignity through community development programmes. A supported savings programme and training in traditional Cambodian handicrafts are two ways that achieves community development. The handicrafts include traditionally hand dyed and hand woven silk and its manufacture into saleable items in a cottage industry environment.  Tabitha also assists with the construction of wells and houses. Teams of volunteers build houses for those unable to do so themselves.

Nurturing Threads has been appointed by Tabitha Foundation Australia to import into Australia and distribute Tabitha’s cottage industry products, which includes a range of homewares, handbags, fashion accessories and giftware. The business is also registered by Fair Trade Australia.

The sale of these products in Australia is a win-win for Tabitha Cambodia. Products are purchased up front and profits from sales are returned to Cambodia for reinvestment into Tabitha’s programmes. Nurturing Threads’ sales directly promote the sustainable development of this cottage industry in Cambodia, which provides employment to 550 families that each earn approx US$150 per month. This is almost five times the average monthly income for Cambodians. Purchasing a Tabitha cottage industry product is truly appreciated, and your help will last a lifetime.

The Nurturing Threads range of products come in over 60 colours and can be custom ordered in colour and style combinations of your choice. There is always a very large range of colours and styles that can be purchased on a “cash and carry” basis. The range includes exquisite bedding and cushions as well as an extensive range of stylish handbags and other giftware. At this time of year there is also a unique collection of Christmas decorations including heirloom 3D sterling silver pieces.

EFTPOS and credit card facilities will be available, and shoppers will be able to custom order products in their preferred styles and colours (if not in stock) in time for Christmas.

When: Saturday, 5 December 2009
Where: The Station, 58 Bowman St, Pyrmont NSW 2009
Time: 2.00pm-5.00 pm
