As we collect fabric and notions for our free programs, we need good storage systems.
Magnetic pin cushions
This keeps us from walking on pins and needles! We need ways to keep all our sharps contained, especially during classes and Create + Connect.
Needles (for hand and machine sewing)
We know sewing can change the world, but that starts with needles! You can help us by bringing in hand and machine sewing needles.
Paper Sewing Patterns
If you have paper sewing patterns of any kind- quilting, home decor, toy making, garment making- send them our way!
We would like to have a round table for our classroom and create and connect, to encourage handwork and sewing circles.
We always need working sewing machines for our free programs and community classroom. Machines with speed control are ideal, but we will take sergers, cover stitch machines, etc.
Step Stool or short ladder
As our donations grow, we need more tools to help us organize and store materials for program participants.
Supportive sewing chairs
We are looking for stable chairs with good lower back support for our workroom staff, students, and volunteers to use.
Quality, natural felt is always useful for our kids classes and events!
