Do you have a favorite place to give fabric scraps to?
There are some bits of cloth I have had for 30 years and it is time to pass them on to someone else. Who should I donate them to? (or toss??) Thanks for your replies!

I give mine to a local church and they use them for Ugly Quilts that they make for the homeless in large cities.

I post my scraps on Freecycle and have always had a really quick response. I also live in a metro area with lots of people, I guess it depends the interest of your local community.

I use them as stuffing for dog pillows for our local shelter.

Good useable fabric goes to the hospital auxiliary group women ,to make things to sell to raise money for equipment..small scraps to pre schools and primary schools to use for craft.

I donate my fabric to a local nursing home's activities department. They use the fabric for different projects for their residents.

Hi Estikoen!

If you have good quality flannel or 100% quilting cotton, I am collecting for an organization called Days for Girls. They make reusuable feminine hygiene items for girls in third world countries that do not have funds or access to supply them with the disposable products we here just take for granted.

It sounds crazy and kind of "eww" at first, until you realize that these young girls are missing up to 1/4 of their educational days, or using things like newspaper, leaves and corn husks to "make do".

If you have these types of fabrics and would be willing to ship them to Minnesota let me know, I am helping the MN Chapter organizer collect supplies for her October cutting and November sewing events. And anything not used this time will be used for the next one!

Tina

Local 4-H clubs with sewing projects or boys and girls clubs that do crafts would appreciate them.

When my kids were in grade school I always gave my fabric scraps and craft leftovers to the art teacher. He loved them!
