Textile Donations

You can help create jobs and support local artisans by bringing donations of unwanted textiles and fabric arts supplies to Ragfinery. We accept walk-in donations (1421 N Forest Street, Bellingham, WA 98225) during business hours (Tuesday – Saturday, 10am-5pm).

Textile Donation Guide

Unfortunately, we cannot use all textiles at Ragfinery. We gladly accept donations of textiles and notions that are in a condition that would allow our community of artists to transform them into new and imaginative creations. Please ensure that all donations are clean and pest-free!
