What to do with scrap?

Comments are now closed to this entry. I regret the inconvenience but I simply cannot run herd on it anymore. It’s the old tragedy of the commons problem. Here’s a brief explanation of what that means:

…describes a situation in which multiple individuals, acting independently, and solely and rationally consulting their own self-interest, will ultimately deplete a shared limited resource even when it is clear that it is not in anyone’s long-term interest for this to happen.

That means that people will act in their own self interest even if it ruins it for everyone else.

Kathleen,

I am a home sewer and sometimes quilter and a fan of your blog. When I read your blog this morning I was reminded of this ongoing scrap recycling “project”:

http://www.nepanetwork.com/magicmik/

I don’t know any more about Magic Mike than what is on his website. I have never requested a box of scraps (goodness knows I have a large enough collection of my own). This seems to be a labor of love, of sorts; Mike does not appear to be making a profit. I don’t know that Mike can take on MORE scraps, but his success proves to me that there is a market, of sorts, for scraps like this.

I also heard the NPR story this morning about Joseph Abboud and remembered his story from your blog. I’m glad he and his methods are getting some national exposure.

Hi everyone, I was thrilled to receive a phone call from Kathleen today. She mentioned someone had posted a link to my Magic Mike’s Scrap to Wraps Project. BTW, that link is actually to an older version of the site, the newer version is posted at http://www.nepanetwork.com/magicmike/ if anyone wants to see how these scraps are put to good use. Many people use them for community service projects like making quilts for kids in hospitals, homeless people, even clothes for migrant worker’s children, etc. There is a whole list of projects that people have already completed and even some photos to show some of these projects.

Because of some complications from my past brain surgery, I am no longer able to pack and mail the boxes of scraps. However, I will be happy to post a link to this blog so people looking for scraps can leave a message here and someone who has scraps available may be able to help them out.

The poster will pay the shipping costs so it does not cost the person sending out the scraps. This may not seem very important, but if you send out a number of boxes at 50 pounds each, it can run into a few hundred dollars for shipping costs depending on what state they are going to.

I will try to have the people state what they will use the scraps for so you can decide if your scraps will work for them.

I think this is an excellent offer and I really appreciate it. I really miss being able to save scraps from the landfills and this will help me feel like I am still contributing to that cause.

If anyone would like to find out what the people who received my scraps thought of this project, just visit the newsgroup rec.crafts.textiles.quilting and ask if anyone has ever heard of Magic Mike’s Scraps project and you should get a few responses. You can also search the archives of the newsgroup and see hundreds of messages regarding this project and how the people felt about it.

In advance, thank you Kathleen for contacting me and to everyone for considering this project.

As a teacher at the Fashion Insititute of Technology in NYC, I have made several connections with accessories manufacturers to ask them to give their leather scraps and old season sample room supplies of leather skins to our accessories program. It has made an enormous difference for new students just learning to not have to spend so much money on leather. Also the quality is excellent as most is imported. Please remember to donate to fashion schools if you have sample yardages that are taking up too much space. Elementary school programs like scraps sometimes for art projects. In NYC there is “Media for the Arts” which which is run by the garbage company to recycle useable various “media” for teachers all over the city. If you are a teacher you can walk in take a shoppping cart and pick out anything you need for your school projects free of charge. I’ve had manufacturers ship hundreds of pounds of buttons and trims for others to use.

Just another idea to consider.

I use scraps to make bags, accessories, and wearables. I am looking for additional sources of material, I am willing to take test garments apart, but do not want damaged materials.

If we opened a scrap net work, a website that connects scrap users to scrap producers, would there be an interest? What sort of terms and conditons would folks want?

Please feel welcome to email me your ideas…and offers of fabrics!

Quilters can use scraps as small as 3 inches or so. It just depends on the individual quilter. Other people make carft projects and are always looking for small scraps.

If you have scraps available, just post a message here and once the word gets out, you should get some requests for the scraps.

I suggest the requestor should send a check or money order for the shipping depending on the size of the package. I request their zip code and how many pounds of scraps they want. This way you will get the shipping money up front and can even wait for it to clear if it is a personal check.

I used to have people that would request at least a box every month. With repeat customers you can usually tell whether a check is good or not.

I have posted a message on the rec.crafts.textiles.quilting newsgroup and some of the members there may be stopping by to figure out how to get some of the scraps available.

Good luck with your scraps.

Hi, I went back to Magic Mike’s page hoping to get on the list as I’ve finally got a little bit of money to pay shipping.

Mike I’m praying for your healing.

As for scraps, I live in VA and I’ve called just about every manufacturer around here and they all told me, except one in NC who promised to send me a couple of boxes and never did, that they no longer do inhouse cutting.

What I’ve been working on are crocheted rugs and I’m also working on some quilts. I’m disabled and can’t do much but occassionally I do a craft show to try and raise some extra money.

I’ve been dumpster diving for a lot of my fabrics and it’s time consuming but I’m thankful for it.

I’m also learning to make my own shoes and bras. I can’t afford to pay the cost of the special clothing I need. Last time was $30 for a lousy bra. My feet are also messed up so I’m learning to make fabric shoes with a ton of padding with extra wide width.

So the kinds of fabrics I can use are as follows:

cotton
cotton/poly blends
denim
wool
batting
suede
spandex or lycra or blends

If you have the cuttaways for the selvages where there’s long strips I can definitely use those!

I only get a little money once a month. My hubby’s on disability for his heart. So I can save up the money for shipping but it’s only once a month that I can send anything unless I can find someone to buy a rug or something.

I appreciate it!

Steph

Greetings to you;
I came across another site that directed me to your site. I quilt baby blankets for charity and also make fetal-demise pouches for our local hospital. I would need 100% cotton fabric. I live in the 29710 zip code area. I am not sure how much it would cost to ship or if I could even afford the shipping. What are the size ranges of your scraps? I was just trying to figure out if this would even work for me. The fetal-demise pouches are about 14 inches square. I thank you for your time and God bless you, Darlene.

Must move to the country to take care of my elderly folks, and am working on getting a cottage business going (making shoulder bags from repurposed materials). Looking for sources of scrap fabric (say, minimum 48 square inches up to whatever size). Bits of trim materials, gauzy stuff and ribbon, buttons, etc. would also be welcome. Prefer primarily natural content, especially earth tones. Am particularly interested in: strong repetitive designs, lots of tactile texture, rugged woven fabric, upholstery fabric, tightly woven medium to heavy weight intricate prints. Will pay shipping. Would love to hear from you – please put SCRAP FABRIC in the subject line. Thanks!

Hi,
I live in London, UK and make patchwork quilts and dolls house quilts and bedding – just can’t stop making things! I’ve made so much over the years that, in spite of working as a curtain maker, I am beginning to run out of interesting fabrics.

I would love to get any light(ish) weight cottons or silks scraps that anyone wants to get rid of – I will pay postage if not too much – ie not too big a parcel from USA! The silk scraps particularly can be as small as 2″ square.

Any ideas gratefully received.

We are the International Non-profit charity http://www.quiltsforkids.org . with over 50 chapters across North America we are always in need of kid friendly cotton fabrics to make into quilts that comfort children in need.

We take the Quilt and Home Dec. Fabric industries unwanted cottons and make them into crib size quilts that comfort children in need. These are children who face long hospitals stays with life threatening illnesses, such as cancer and AIDS, as well children of abuse.
At the moment we find ourself in need of your help.

In linking with the major fabric companies, We have saved millions of pounds of discontinued and unwanted fabric from landfill. Our problem is that we tend to clean them out and are left either scrounging or purchasing fabric to keep up with the demand from Children’s Hospitals for quilts for their sickest chidlren.
We have 500 requests or more monthly
from hospitals and individual children needing quilts.
If you have any fun brightly colored kid friendly cotton to gift we’d be grateful.

Hi! I’m interested in the idea of making my own clothing. As a modest teen in the modern world, it’s hard to find cute, comfy, affordable clothes. There are several clothing stores out there that aren’t too expensive, but the options tend to leave your sense of style less than Grandma- or even Mom-approved. I’ve never really made anything complex, a pillow here and there or a simple purse, so I’m concerned about wasting expensive material and what little money I have while practicing. Pretty much any material will do. Thanks so much!

I’m a fashion student and getting my hands on fabric is 1.) expensive and 2.) not very easy because all the other students are trying to get fabric too. If anyone needs to get rid of any fabric scraps I would be very happy to take them off your hands. My email is again for reading my post!!

ok so after reading more carefully the instructions above i realized i left out my email address in the body of this message. my apologies!! it is I make, sell, and donate cloth diapers. i could really use some help with materials since cloth diaper materials tend to get pretty expensive.i use any tightly woven fabric,things that will soak up liquid well, like fleece,knit, terry, cotton,and PUL 1 mil or 2 mil is great for waterproofing. i live in colorado 80906 and will love for forever if i am able to pay for you to ship me some scraps : ) dont worry if you dont think the scraps are large enough for a diaper i make patchwork looking ones to in those cases : )

Hello. I have been crocheting rag rugs out of sheets I buy at yard sales. I rip them into strips and sew them together to make balls of fabric strips. I love using techniques I learned as a kid to recreate something out of an old article of clothing or bedding or discarded scraps. Cotton fabric works well and tricot and nylon fabrics work great too. Rolls of 1 – 2 inch strips would be the optimum item for this type of craft but I can use fabric scraps and rip them into strips also.

I am really hoping to help out alot of families and especially the children who will be cold this winter…So I am happy to take anything that people can offer!
If anybody has any sheets, flannel sheets, blankets etc that they don’t need or are damaged in anyway-please contact me because it can be used! Even things that are damaged or stained can be used because we cut things into pieces to put together.

I’m not a quilter…although, I have great respect for their work. HOWEVER, I am looking for fabric to recycle into tote bags. So, I am in need of heavier duty fabrics. I’m not picky. ;-) If anyone is looking to rid themselves of their fabric or know of any companies that are trying to unload material, to make way for new merchandise…throw me an email. I’ll even take on vinyl too. ;)

I love sewing, machine embroidery, I sew quilts, both cotton and flannelette, plus children’s clothes. I give alot of the things I make for gifts and certain charities. I could use cotton, flannelette, stretchy fabrics, for t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Even fleece would be good for toddler’s jackets. Small bits make for good appliques. This is a great idea, good luck to those who receive it. my email is Thanks!

Hello. We are raising our 10 year old granddaughter. I am unable to work at the present time and my husband’s job is in jeopardy because of downsizing. Already 4 of the 6 plants in our town have closed and we are scared to death his will be next because his hours have already been cut. In 1999, the month my Mom died, his plant closed after he worked there 25 years and now we may be going through the same thing again. I am trying to sew again which I have not done in many years in order to have income. Any fabric would be so appreciated. I can make girls’ clothing, baby bibs, blankets, cloths, tote bags, place mats etc. I have a 20 year old Kenmore sewing machine. It has a few problems but works okay. Any fabric would be welcomed and I can use it. Thank you so much for considering donating fabric you have left over. God bless. 31830

Hi my name is Megan and I am 19 years old. I love making all kinds of quilts and I enjoy making clothing. Making quilts is my favorite though. If money was not a barrier, I would make millions of quilts. I give the quilts as presents to friends, family members, and patients in the hospital. I also just started to sell some of the quilts to make money to pay for the rest of my tuition at FIU. I would like 100 percent cotton, chenille, satin, upholstery fabric, linen, and flannel. Since I make all types of quilts, I can take scraps even as small as 3 inches.

Since I was younger, I looked forward to having GrandChildren. I was constantly on the go
My GrandKids in tow. I tried to show them they could do anything they wanted to. My oldest Granddaughter’s alter ego became STELLA THE ZINER. She couldn’t say designer. I became
disabled due to a Terrible Infection. I also became VERY depressed. One Day “STELLA” came to me and said,”Grandma, you’re not the fun Grandma anymore!” OUT OF THE MOUTH of BABES!
I got to thinking about what I could do. The thought came to me that I could teach them the
crafts my Mother, Grandmother, and Aunts had taught me. Sewing, quilting,leatherwork,how to
iron, sew on buttons. I used to watch them pickup a piece of Scrap material and make something BEAUTIFUL. So I tapped into my Alter EGO, CHACHA MULDOWNEY, first woman to professionally tear up the drag strip. We became the CHACHAGIRLS.Our email is. We would appreciate any scraps of any kind, any buttons, leather, feathers, trim, anything you can spare. I would like to teach my Grandkids the meaning of “If ye have done this to the least of these my brethern,Ye have done it unto me.” I would like to start donating out items to Women’s Shelter’s, and to start a “Dress A Living Doll” program Any Help would be appreciated
Thank you!

Hi! I’m a homemaker who recently revived my love of quilting. My mother taught me when I was very young and I never took to it. I started quilting again so I’d have a hobby that was both safe (kids can’t get hurt playing with fabric) and meaningful for my daughter to learn. I LOVE making scrap quilts, I make them entirely by hand, and enjoy seeing how the different fabrics play. I quilt for sanity and any fabric scraps would be appreciated. My husband is a teacher and doesn’t make much. My hobby tends to be the last item factored into our budget. I may one day quilt for charity but right now I’m quilting heirlooms for my family. Thank you!!

Rose Tree is a bedding/table linens manufacturer and we have tons of fabric scraps when we make bedding for large orders that fill up 2 large dumpsters in a hurry. I am posting them if someone is in need of this type of material for other uses.

Fabric waste happens for example when you are using a pattern other than solid and have to center it on a pillow or are making a round pillow the edges are cut off. Tidbits of fabrics, sheers of it, pieces etc. The white salvage edges off a bolt of fabric, drapery panel lining, placemat fusing, bedskirt platform material.

We have bagged some up so you can haul them off so we dont have to throw them in the trash. I usually have 20-50 bags daily, sometimes less sometimes lots more.

1) WE WILL NOT MAIL OR SHIP BAGS.

2) YOU MUST COME DURING BUSINESS HOURS TO GET THEM, WE WILL NOT LEAVE THEM OUTSIDE THE DOOR.
__________________________________________________________________
We make custom bedding and draperies and have many fine quality fabric scraps appropriate for use in arts, crafts, decor, and fashion. Fabrics retail from 22-99 per yard. Miscellaneous scraps are available free of charge to schools and other charities. We cannot target color groups or type of fabric, but save the fabric as jobs go through the shop.

The St. Andrews Lutheran Church of Franklin Tn is making book bags for their world outreach program for children in many countries as well as quilts which are being used as hammocks by a school in Haiti.

Please email if you would like to receive fabrics from us. We hope that many blessings come from your efforts!

Hello, I am a University of Texas student here in Austin. I recently heard on the radio that a local animal shelter is in desperate need of blankets for the dogs, puppies, cats and kitties they have on the property. Only a few have cages indoors, and a lot of them are kept sheltered, but the air is open to the elements. There is a lot of cold weather coming up, and some of them won’t make it- the shelter doesn’t have enough money and special care for every sick orphan. I love crafts, and just finished finals and have a lot of free time for the next month or so. I’m not an experienced quilter, but my mom and I enjoy sewing projects, and I can imagine there’s a shivering puppy out there that’s going to be more than happy if it gets a blanket made out of awkwardly sewn scraps that don’t match. I know I get sad thinking about where my kitty would be if I hadn’t adopted her, and I can’t adopt them all… I will take ANYTHING you have, but of course I have a preference for materials that will survive repeated washings and that won’t immediately shred if a puppy loves on it too much.

Thank you!

Hello,
My name is Eunice, recently disabled and a stay at home mom to my boyfriend’s 3 little girls. I do all kinds of crafting with material to pass my time while the girls are in school. The items are then sold to help raise money for Project Care (plans for Native American Orphange and Seniors home) and CDM Wilflife rescue. I am interested in cotton, cotton blends, fleece and flannel.
Thank you.

Hello, My name is Karen,

I’m writing to you with a request for a fabric donation. Two years ago I was diagnosed with fibromayalgia and since have developed osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. I am no longer able to work and am considered disabled at this point and I continue create crafts to help support my needs.

I have NO health insurance and my doctor visits and medications cost come to approximately $500 a month. I am able to create small items such as baby quilts, pincushions, pot holders, coasters, and baby shoes from small amounts of fabric that my friends have given me. I then participate in craft fairs, cabin fever events, and fairs to supplement my income for my medical needs.

I would be happy with ANY donation you would be able to contribute to me down to a 2″ block. I’m not requesting yards or bolts of fabric. I would be happy with a fat quarter or whatever you can spare. My mailing address will follow and my phone number (should you want to call to verify that this is NOT a hoax). I mainly work with cotton, linen, felt, flannel and sometimes denim, however prefer cotton. Your company information will be advertised on a placard that will be inside my booth at any show I do. I am in great need for felt of all colors.

I also make and donate burp cloths and receiving blankets for the local hospitals neonatal ward.

Please feel free to visit my gift shop on Etsy.com, the name of my shop is “My Menageries”. It’s an ever changing shop and carries a little bit of this and that. By visiting my Etsy shop you will get to see what I actually make and try to sell.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Bless You.

Hello- if anyone has any scraps they are willing to donate or sell at reduced costs, it would be greatly appreciated. My husband’s employer recently instituted a 10% pay decrease across the boiard b/c of decreased revenue; as well as drastically cut his hours. I’m a stay at home mom and I sew almost all our clothing; this year we’ve been struggling financially, so material has been hard to come by. I can use anything intended for apparel; cotton is the easiest for the quality of my machine.
If anyone is willing to help us out I will be sure to make some extra things to donate to our local shelter, to keep the karmic circle going, and if you like, I’ll be happy to make the donater something as well :) Thanks so much

New Quilter. I’ve finished 3 quilts but fabric is expensive. I’ll take anything that can be washed, dried, and warm ironed. The scrap can be anywhere from as small as an inch on up. Also, if you have scrap batting, 7″ square or bigger, I can use that, too.
I live on a limited income & so do the people I’ve given the quilts to. I’m not precisely house-bound, but i come real close, so quilting gives me something to do besides housework and running after my 3-year old.
Please?

I especially like working with cotton jersey, silks, satins, synthetics, even leather, and stuff like that. I can really use just about any fabric. I try to make my clothing and accessories fairly priced and most times I don’t even pay myself minimum wage to tell you the truth so that other people can look nice and feel good about themselves for a good price. I have a policy that I don’t think you should have to be rich to have quality, pretty clothing so please help me if you can. I live in Rhode Island and my zip is 02888. My email is, thank you!

Quilts would be good to have for the winter, but we hope to be able to make some simple clothing, especially for children. Anything scraps in cotton would be great.

I am an artist, teacher and co-director of an art education center in Stockton, NJ (www.TheArtsStockton.com). On June 10, I will be starting a pilot art program at Gilda’s Club in Warminster, PA (http://www.gildasclubdelval.org/). Gilda’s Club is a non profit national organization that is a cancer support center for individuals (and their family) who are being treated for cancer of every type.

They currently do not have art programs, but feel there is enormous therapeutic and empowerment qualities in providing an expressive outlets. Our pilot art program has been scheduled as 2 six week programs where I will teach fabric design and sewing techniques for the participants to use in creating individual quilt squares that will be combined into one collective artwork.

Although I have worked with many low budget programs, this is the first time I have a no budget program.
Once this pilot program is complete (along with documentation), Gilda’s Club feels sure that they will be able to raise funds to enable the program, and others like it, to continue.

To get started, we are looking for any possible donations of:

Cotton fabrics (muslin, solids, prints)
General sewing materials and embellishments (trims, buttons, embroidery materials, etc)
Cotton quilt batting

Any donations are greatly appreciated – and, I appreciate your taking the time to read my posting.
Thank you.

I wish to make TeePee style tents for my nephews and think scraps of a thicker material would be grand. Because each panel of the TP will be cut separately, the patterns do not have to be all the same.

They both like me to make them stuff, from pajamas to saddles for their toy horses. I can find a use for any material and welcome it.

We make quilts for children who are sick or injured and deliver them to DuPont Children’s Hospital in Wilmington, DE. This is a gift to all of us, as when you give, you receive! Please only 100% cotton fabric, the larger the size the better, as I cut them into quilt kits for our volunteers to assemble. Then, if sizes are large, say 45×60, I can use it for the backs. We are funded solely by donations. Thank you for your time and generosity!!!!!

Brittany’s Battle was founded in 2007 by Tammy Coppedge, who lost
her daughter just a few months after she was diagnosed with Lung
Cancer in 2006. Our mission is to provide information and support
for families, caregivers, and friends whose loved ones are fighting
their own battle with cancer; to raise awareness about lung cancer
and childhood cancer; to provide research grants to those making
progress in the battle against lung cancer.

We support UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the
Patient and Family Resource Center. We take the children new stuffed
frogs and donate new books, new games, and DVD’s to the Cancer
Center and Resource Center. We also take toiletry kits and activity
bags for the family members to have access to at the Cancer Center.

We would also like to incorporate a program where we are able to
carry handmade lap quilts to pass out to the cancer patients during
each visit. We have a quilter who has offered to volunteer her time
to make the quilts as long as we can provide the fabric, batting,
muslin and thread. She has offered to stay on with this program for
as long as we need her, which will be until we run out of fabric!

So wont you please help us get some quilts made! The cancer patients
at the Cancer Center range from infant to elders so any fabrics
could be used, the quilter has requested standard Cotton fabrics
tho. We would greatly appreciate anything you are able to offer,
from yards to remnants/swatches to kits or jelly rolls, charm packs or
thread, muslin or batting!

Thank you so much for your time and consideration on this matter.
Have a blessed day.

Donations can be sent to our quilter so that she has access to them
as soon as they come in.

My sister in-laws and our girls all make crafts together and every year we display one large item at the Tour of Tables held in Greenwood, IN. It is not a competition, but helps raise money for charity.We use fabrics of any kind, but we have chosen a Victorian Dollhouse as this years project. We would appreciate creams, burgundies, vintage, solid or print but would appreciate any help. Ruffles and lace, trims or tassels would also be welcome.
Thank you,

Hello…what a wonderful thing you are doing and what a blessing you are to others. I have been taking biscuits and gravy to a halfway house for close to a year now and also taking whats left to the VETS. It has become too expensive to continue by myself without a sponser so I thought I would try to make quilts for the folks at the halfway house and for the homeless VETS instead until I can find a way to go back to taking these folks a home cooked breakfast.

However I am without fabric, and came across this website and am thanking God at how you have helped so many and if I may be so lucky I would be so grateful.

There is nothing more heartwarming than to see the smiles, love and gratitude on the faces of these people and they ask NOTHING from you but give you their hearts. Somehow I have to try to help them in anyway I can and I can sew and make something warm for them if I can find the materials to do it with and I will continue to cook for them when I find a way.

I so appreciate anything anything that can be done to help…and I know my guys and gals at the halfway house and the US VETS will appreciate it too.

Fabrics I am looking for are cottons or anything that can be put into a quilt…I am not choosy and neither will the recipients be their hearts will be open wide to your generosity. Thank you so much in advance.
