I was wondering if anyone has some extra fabric that they could donate, I will be making quilts for children at shelters in arizona soon and need supplies, but am low on cash. If you have any pieces, not matter what yardage, i would love to have them Smiley

Do you have any local fabric stores you can ask at?  I mean, ask to put a poster about your project, many other sewers will probably donate from their stash.  I did this once for fleece and ended up with too much!  You might be able to ask in person at a quilters meeting too, face to face is a great way to get help. good luck!

Hi. I rarely post "down here" so if this has been discussed exhaustively, I apologize in advance.

Have you tried Freecycle? This sounds like the very thing that would be listed therein.

http://freecycle.org/display.php?region=US%20Southwest

Also, you might want to take people up on offers of used clothing, especially wool. I've been wanting to make a wool crazy quilt, and it seems like it would be easy enough to either go to a thrift store and buy large-size wool skirts, or trawl Freecycle for donations of wool garments. This is one of my ideas that hasn't come to fruition yet for lack of time and dedication. Smiley

How would I go about finding a children's shelter that would accept quilts? I live rather far away and I need a way to get rid of a lot of my scraps, but most of the places I have called won't take donations.

I used google and searched "Arizona childrens shelters" and contacted some until I found someone who wanted mine Smiley
