We prefer natural fibers, but polyester and polyester blends work well too. If you know the content of the fabric you are donating, please attach a note to each fabric piece. Knowing the content of the fabric is important for determining what inks or dyes are suitable for that fabric. We have a particular need for solid colored fabrics. Our artists use a variety of techniques to create unique patterns and designs for these fabrics. Donated fabrics with minimal patterns, such as stripes or polka dots may also be used.
