While randomly searching the internet for sewing related volunteer opportunities, I found a local group called Crafting Comfort. They do 100% charity sewing projects, using donated sewing space, materials, or grant funds from local foundations.

I was able to leave work early this week and go to one of their working meetings. We sewed home decor items for a region/local battered women's organization and living resource. They apparently have apartments and a school on site for longer terms needs and want to make things homier and more welcoming. We worked on curtains, nap mat pads for the kindergarten, and pillows and pillow covers.

I made 3 pillow covers in about an hour and half! It was a lovely group of ladies (all retired, except for me), and we were very productive! I hope to go again soon.

This is awesome! Great job.

I recently donated fabric to a homeless group - they want to print patches and I am looking for other places to donate my huge stash.

Thank you all! Anyone wanting to donate fabric should also be aware: many cities have local quilt and blanket-making charities that accept donations and can be found on Google. Also, check to see if your city has a craft space that then re-sells donated items for a low price where a portion or total of the proceeds go to a specific charity. I know there's one like that in Austin, so I expect there are more! Smiley
