Featured This Month
We are proud to partner with Charity Sharity to become the midwest's largest fabric repurposer! For over 20 years Charity Sharity volunteers have been accepting, sorting and distributing donated fabrics in our community all out of a small basement in Crestwood! We are thrilled that this operation is now conducted out of The CSR and WOW do they have an amazing system!
99.9 % of their donated fabric is used in some way. Around 400 pounds of fabric are processed a week, with about 200 pounds remaining here and being sold through our Maker's Mart. The rest is distributed by Charity Sharity. Not only does this provide you with fantastic deals on fabric for your projects but it also prevents these items from clogging up landfills. We are proud of the positive impact this program has on the environment!
If you would like to donate fabric and other related notions, there is a designated grey storage unit on the side of CSR for you to place items in. You'll also find a donation sheet to fill out so if you are in a rush and just need to drop it off, you don't even have to come inside. However, we hope you will pop in and say hi and/or check out the space! Donations can now be dropped off during any of our regular business hours.
Donations should be from a clean stash, no odors (musty or cigarette). Larger pieces of fabric are preferred.
Other items we accept are:
-machines - no cabinets
-any other stitching related items
We hope you'll come visit our Maker's Mart! More information below...
