FABRIC: OPERATION REUSE!

FASHIONABLE CAUSE

Hey Fashion Designers!

I know you have tons of fabric that don’t make the cut at the end of your seasons or semesters and that you have fabric that’s been laying around for ages because you “one day want to use it” or you had a “great idea for a project” a year ago.  Let’s face it, it’s just taking up space in your little apt.

The solution? MATERIALS FOR THE ARTS!  This amazing reuse center takes designers unused fabrics and trims (and pretty much all types of art supplies) and donates them to schools and non-profits that don’t otherwise have access or funding to these much needed materials.

So next time you are doing some spring cleaning head over to the MFTA and support local schools and non-profits!
