We are very fortunate that we are frequently contact by people looking to donate fabric, sewing notions and equipment. I'm always honored when people consider us for donations. Often they are cleaning out someone's sewing rooms and are looking for someone to appreciate the supplies as much as their loved one did.
For years I have collected nearly every donation offer, using what we can and then contacting local organization when I can't. Unfortunately I have reached capacity and can't store or use all the donations that are offered to me. Luckily, there are plenty of local organizations who would greatly appreciate what you have!
If you would like your organization to be added to this list, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will add you! Please remember to email or call these organizations first! While they do have a need for donations from time to time they may not have a need currently.
