                          We are moving out of a home we have lived in for almost 30 years. I am a reformed "fabricaholic". I have a wide variety of fabric types I would like to donate to someone who could use them. Most of the cotton is gone to an organization that mades little dresses and pants for children in Africa, but there is still lots to be had.

                          Please let me know if anyone knows where I could donate these materials in the greater Milwaukee area.

                          Thanks.

                            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.

                            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!

                            Hi Anthony,

                            My name is Ashley and I work with the Neighborhood Youth Association, a non-profit that serves underprivileged youth in Mid-City, Mar Vista, South Central, and the Venice area. We are currently doing some community-building projects with our children that require fabric. I would be willing to come pick up if it is still available. You can reach me at anavarro AT nyayouth.org

                            Thank you,

                            Ashley
