Hi all,

I'm going some serious stash clean-out, and I'm looking for a place to donate the good stuff that I'll probably never use, including some zippers, trims, some notions, and fabric. I could free-cycle it, but I'd prefer to donate to a youth organization or school or charity group that could use it. There are lots of organizations found on the internet where I can mail donations in, but I'd prefer to donate it without it actually costing me money Smiley and also to somewhere in the fair city of Baltimore (or close by). Does anyone know of groups in the city (like youth craft groups or something) that would be interested?

Have you checked in with your local nursing homs or churches? I know many churches have groups who make crafts and things to sell at their Christmas bizzares and Strawberry Festivals to benefit the church. And I know a couple of nursing homes that have sewing clubs and stuff. I'd suggest calling in to a couple places and asking around.

Hey Kate,
I'm new to sewing and any supplies would be GREATLY appreciated.
I'm 22 in the Bolton Hill area- a lovely chunk of baltimore.
So far I've just made a few neat pillows. I have the village thrift store practically in my backyard- awesome fabric resource. I want to move up and start making clothes but stuff is so expensive- especially in the city.

Even if you've already given the stuff away, it'd be nice to be in contact with a fellow sewer so close by.

Talk to you soon!
Kim

Hi!  Me and the gang sew pillows for Bears, Books, and Bonnets.  We would love any cotton fabric if you would like to donate it. BBB serves the cancer patients in MD hospitals, as well as some in NY and GA.  If you could spare the time you might also consider sewing pillow blanks for us.  It's a simple (7" x 10") pillow for those undergoing chemotherapy to rest their hand on as well as something for the little ones with cancer to squeeze.  I started this pillows project as a tribute to my dad who died from cancer.
