Our Social Fabric is Looking for Volunteers!

About our Fabric Sales

Reds from our May 2011 fabric sale

We recycle fabric by holding monthly fill-a-bag fabric sales out of our Maple Leaf storage locker in East Vancouver. Proceeds go to maintaining the storage locker and keeping it available for donations while we grow our organization and develop related programs. The sales are fun and inclusive community events, and are a great place to network with other folks in Vancouver’s textile and creative arts industries while contributing to a great cause.
