We are so excited, we just received a sizable donation from one of our regular donors and can’t wait to share it with you. Check out all the goodies below. Our Social Fabric is Vancouver’s non-profit textile recycling initiative – going strong after 10 years and still diverting tons of fabric from the landfill!
Let’s Get Technical!
We have a huge selection of Technical Fabrics including “pack” fabrics, durable, water resistant and waterproof, sturdy technical canvas fabrics, light weight stretch wovens and coat weight technicals. Lots of different colours and weights to choose from. The days will be getting shorter and harder for drivers to see runners and kids at night – why not make a bright green jacket or backpack and make your loved ones more visible in the evenings.
Coat-Weight Polyester Fibrefill
Lots and lots of coat-weight fibrefill specially designed for jackets, coats and outerwear – comes in a variety of weights (40 to 200 gsm) PrimaLoft, Microdenier Mid Loft and PrimaLoft Gold. This fiberfill is great for coat linings and could be used for stuffing soft toys and squishy cushions.
Lycra Solids and Prints
A new stock of lycra in winter colours has arrived – so versatile, our lycra can be made into tops, leggings, jackets, skirts, athletic wear including sports bras and shorts. We’ve re-designed our knit section and topped up our stock with lots of patterned knits and colourful lycras.
