Donating Fabric

Archived Q&A and Reviews

Nov 2008

Is there some place that accepts donations of fabric? After years of sewing, I have yards of many kinds of fabric I know I won't use, and I'd like to give them a chance to be used by someone. jenny

Children's Hospital Oakland receives sewn items (blankets, wheelchair bags, dolls, etc) from the Rossmoor Stitchers (from the retirement community) in Walnut Creek. I am sure they would appreciate any fabric they could get. hope this helps

If the fabric is 100% cotton, the East Bay Heritage Quilters will take it. I'm pretty sure they use it in the Children's Quilt project, which is coordinated by Deanna Davis. If, for some reason, you are unable to reach Deanna, call New Pieces in Berkeley. All the people who work there are active in the guild and would be happy to find a home for your fabric. quilter
