Do you have a special someone to honor on Mother’s Day, or any day? We’ll be making flowers out of reclaimed scrap fabric and trims, using basic hand-sewing techniques. Use your flower to dress up a card with a special message, or attach it to a safety pin to make a one-of-a-kind accessory. No need to register – just drop-in with your cash donation. All materials provided.

Impact: Gifts made from existing materials reduce new product purchase and divert from the textile waste stream.
