    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.

    Hello!

    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.

            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.

              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.

                  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.

                    Schools need fabric for sewing, etc., classes.

                    Womens' and childrens' shelters need fabric for classes for adults and kids.

                    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.
