I use my old fabric to make pet toys and sell them online. They usually sell fast.

Look for the local chapter of Project Linus. They make blankets, quilts, afghans for children in hospitals, disaster situations and for children who have lost parents in the wars. Check online, they love to receive donated fabric or yarn for these blankets that bring so much comfort to children in need.

My name is Kalyn Sheahan. I am currently volunteering for a non profit charity called the Quilted Love Project. We have an event on July 25-26. People will come out and decorate 16x16 in squares which will then be sewn into quilts and distributed to the homeless population in Downtown Los Angeles! We are looking for ANY fabric (not stretchy or luxurious), art supplies, and even sewers for the actual event as they will be sewing as fast as the squares are being completed. If you would like to help please email me personally and I can come pick it up! I'm in West Hollywood. Thank you for your time!

Check in your area for the local Project Linus group. They make blankets, quilts, etc. for children in hospitals, in disaster areas, for children of deceased soldiers, for homeless children. They are always accepting donated fabric or yarn for their projects. You can check online at their website for the chapter near you. I know they would appreciate it and put it to good use.
I would like to donate fabric somewhere in Frederick or Washington counties in Maryland. Do you know of any locations which will accept fabric?

The Project women of King of Glory Lutheran, (and other Lutheran church groups) make quilts for Lutheran World Relief, a non profit of major impact! Donated fabrics are vital to this effort. We would be so grateful for donations in the Dallas area. Thank you for considering us.
My mom is closing a business that uses yard goods fabric). We need a place/charity in the Tampa Bay, Florida area that has a use for such material. Does anyone have such a charity in mind?

Check for the local Project Linus chapter in your area. They make quilts, blankets, afghans for children in hospitals, in disaster situations, etc. They are always willing to take donate fabric and yarn. I am in our local chapter here in Maryland and get so much satisfaction making blankets for children in need. Try looking up Project Linus on the internet for your local chapter.

Check online for the closest Project Linus chapter. They make blankets, quilts and afghans for children in hospitals, in disasters and for camps for children who have lost parents in the war. Our chapter also donates to homeless children in our school system. They are always willing to accept donated fabric or yarn. Our chapter meets tomorrow in fact and I just turned in 4 baby afghans made of donated yarn. The ladies make beautiful quilts out of the donated fabric. Just do a search for "Project Linus" and the website will help direct you to local chapters.

Check around for the closest Project Linus group. They made blankets, quilts, etc. for children in hospitals, disasters, etc. They will take donate fabric and pass it on to members to make quilts. Check on the internet for their locate near you. I make blankets for them but I crochet and use their donated yarn for the afghans I make. Makes so many children happy to receive a blanket when in a crisis.
We have our mother's fabric to donate. There are 15 boxes. There are some nice pieces; as we are from Pennsylvania we have wool, knit jersey, and some cottons. We are looking to donate in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Another group who would welcome fabric donations would be the sewers at a nursing home and retirement centre. I used to live in Cherokee County, GA, and often saw donation calls from activities directors down in MetroATL in the free classifieds.
And youth groups would probably be over the moon for those yard goods, too. Check with the local high schools to see if they have a Life Skills or Home Skills teacher who might be able to point you in the right direction to share that fabric wealth.
Are there any quilting non-profit organizations in the Rochester, NY area who make quilts for cancer patients? My client, a patient herself, has a large stash of fabric she wants to donate to make quilts.

Contact several of the local churches, they may have groups of ladies that sew lap quilts for donation to hospitals, DP offices, nursing homes, etc.
We closed a fabric store about 10 years ago and stored the rest of the fabrics and notions in a 10x10 storage. We would like to donate them. Do you know anyone can use them? They have to pick up and load the fabrics and notions themself. The storage is in Orange, CA. Thank you. God bless!

Yes, and senior centers as well. Google "Seattle Washington Fabric Donations". This will certainly give you plenty to give to. PBP

I'm not sure how old your post is as I didn't see a date, but thought I would try to respond anyway.

I have quilt shop quality cottons that I need to de-stash and donate. They have been pre-washed. I need a group in Indianapolis or Fishers Indiana.

Wish you lived close by...why not call the local churches or any organizations that help the homeless (food kitchens, etc) and see if they'd like them to create blankets?
You might ask your local library if they know of anyone who does this kind of work for the community.
I hope you find a home for your cotton.
I live in Washington County, OR and have a lot of fabric that needs to be put to good use. I am no longer able to sew.
June 22, 2015
Call churches and senior centers as they often have quilting groups that make quilts and clothes for shelters, hospitals, etc. Also:
Schools need fabric for sewing, etc., classes.
Womens' and childrens' shelters need fabric for classes for adults and kids.
Consider other possibilities in your area for the fabric.
My sister, in Iowa, has 15 large bags of fabric to donate. These are yardages, mostly for making clothing. She is unable to sew any longer due to illness. I am helping her find a place where she can donate it.

Assisted living centers, Salvation Army, and St. Vincent de Paul centers come to mind. These people do amazing work and rarely get that big of a donation. Look for guilds that make blankets for the homeless...a real coup for them. I hope that helps.
I am looking to donate fabric locally. There are about out 20 boxes this size. Where are the locations in Minneapolis, Minnesota?

Call churches in your area. They may have groups who would appreciate your fabric for clothes, blankets, etc., for homeless shelters, youth clubs, etc.
Elementary schools, child care centers, city adult education centers, etc., may be able to use fabric. Call or check online for quilling and sewing groups in your area.
I have lots of good fabrics for donations. I live in the north Houston, Texas area. Does anyone know who could use these items?
By Kathy from north Houston, TX
Any ideas of charities in Portland, Oregon that could use fabrics in crazy prints in lycra and stretch velvet? I'm closing my dance shorts business and want these 10-60 yards of about 15 prints to go to a good cause.
I need an organization where I can donate fabric (women's garments), in NYC (Queens).
