The Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania (RAST), in conjunction with the Royal Hobart Show Creative Craft Committee will be hosting a DeStash Market on Sunday 15th November 2020.

It will provide an opportunity for anyone to sell their unwanted and unused textiles, fabric, yarn, or craft equipment from their collection. It is also open to people who would like to sell any handmade items, not including food.

The event will be held in the Betting Hall from 10am to 3pm, which is located under the Main Grandstand at the Hobart Showground, 2 Howard Road, Glenorchy. Entrance will be via the Brooker Highway.

The Committee and its representatives will also be holding demonstrations including
Cake Making; Embroidery, and Spinning and Weaving
