Woo-hoo! hi everyone, are you ready for another exciting sale at Our Social Fabric – everyone’s favourite non-profit textile recycling initiative in beautiful Vancouver! We’ve been making new friends and helping designers and businesses divert their unwanted textiles from the landfill.This week we picked up a donation of interesting leather, bonded leather and man-made leather from a furniture maker. Priced to move, these durable leather and bonded leather pieces are perfect for making a sachel, tote or even a doggie coat for your puppy!
Denim, Cotton Twill and Corduroy
We found a few more baskets of denim, various colours and weights. We know how much you love denim, so you’ll find it at the front table in the Shop. And a new donation arrived with boxes of cotton twill and corduroy – see picture of some of the fun colours (and a few florals too!) All of these are so versatile for jackets, trousers, bags, throw cushions and more.
Quilting Cottons & Flannelette
Our baskets of quilting cottons are full and lots of Tiny Treasures are available for making scrap quilts. Why not upcycle your well loved blue jeans with bits of colourful quilting cottons, cover a hole or stitch a flower to your hem or back pocket. Add a few pieces of trim and buttons and you have a one-of-a-kind masterpiece! Smaller pieces of Flannelette have been lovingly assembled in coordinating packages, taking the guesswork out of matching patterns and colours, packs are $5 each.
Be sure to watch our Instagram and Facebook posts for news on featured fabrics and notions. New donations arriving every day – looking forward to seeing you all this Thursday!
