Welcome to OSF

Our Social Fabric (OSF) is Vancouver's only non-profit textile recycling initiative that has been in operation since 2009 in Vancouver, BC. OSF is run by a small but passionate volunteer Board. We receive donations of textiles, fabric and sewing related supplies from the film industry, theatre, manufacturing, estate closures together with home sewers and artists. Our team of volunteers sort through the donations and offer them back to the community at drastically reduced prices.
We have a brick and mortar store located at 1275 Venables in Vancouver but we are currently closed to the public due to COVID. However, you can still SHOP 24/7 ONLINE here, just click on the "SHOP" pull down menu to start shopping. You can choose to pick-up your order we will ship it to you anywhere in Canada.
On-line order pick-up times: Tues 12-6pm, Wed: 10am-2pm; Thurs: 12-6pm.
We are very grateful to the many organizations and individuals who continued to support OSF with donations during the COVID closure. We are looking forward to seeing you all again at the next sale, when it is safe. In the meantime, have a look around this new online store - you are sure to find many textiles to tickle your fancy!

We continue to accept your donations of fabric and sewing related supplies - please e-mail our Donations Coordinator (osfdonations@gmail.com) to book a drop-off time. Thank you all for your continued support!
