We are Accepting Donations of Fabric and Yarn etc. during the same times as our curb-side pick-ups for online orders
(NEW TIME) Wednesday 3pm - 5pm
Saturday 11am - 2pm
Donated materials are used in our sewing, knitting, crochet and other classes, resold in our store to support learning programs for people of all ages, or used for charitable sewing projects. We love donations, but we can only accept items that can be reused. We also need to keep a check on our inventory as space is limited. For example, we currently have many cabinet sewing machines and cannot accept more cabinets at this time.
Please read the following information about bringing material donations to the shop.
If you have any questions call us at 585-328-2642 or
send an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
