Hi everyone!

My name is Jhenifer and I work with a non-profit group called Our Social Fabric in Vancouver, BC, Canada that runs monthly recycled fabric sales :)

Every month, we collect excess fabric and notions from manufacturers, the film industry, and more. Then we hold monthly fill-a-bag sales, inviting people to fill a bag to the brim with fabric and take it home for repurposing into clothes, crafts, quilts, etc.

One bag is $25 and you can get two for $40---and we also sell fabric off the bolt by the metre, as low as $2 per metre. And all funds go to covering our storage fees and recycling more fabric!

Anyway, it's low-cost, high-quality fabric, with the benefit of keeping textile waste out of the landfill --- and I just wanted to put a note out so that Vancouver PR readers can connect with us!

Please do find out more about us and our sales over at Our Social Fabric

And our next sale is Sunday January 27, 2013, 10am-2pm at 1631 Powell Street, Vancouver BC!

Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this --- but I wasn't quite sure where else to put it, and would love to reach more folks in Vancouver :)

Many thanks,

Jhenifer

I would so love to get to one of your sales. I have friends who have been and it sounds exciting and fun! Hope one day the stars align and I get the chance to participate in this process. Congrats on a great idea.
