Didn't have a chance to donate to our crowdfunding campaign last month?  You're in luckwe've extended the campaign through January 31st! We've decided to do this for a few reasons: 
1) Demand for Creative Reuse services - from the operation of our shop, to field trip visits, to our Reuse-a-Palooza programs - is as strong as ever! 
2) We are pretty far away from reaching our initial, ambitious fundraising goal of $15,000.
3) There are some amazing perks left to be claimed!
$25 PERK: Handmade Scarf
$30 PERK: Handmade Film Poster
$75 PERK: Hollywood Theater
$50 PERK: Kreepy Doll

Monday, January 23 - Sunday, January 29, 11am-6pm each day
It's our first sale of 2017 and it's going to be AMAZING!
Fill a $5 bag with items on our special sale tables (unmeasured yardage, patterns, books, and other select goodies)
Fill a $15 bag with ANYTHING in our Fabric Section (yarn, tools, fabric, trim, cord, etc). Find something too big for the bag? It's 50% off!
No limits on how many bags you can buy. Stock up on all your supplies during this amazing week-long sale.
Creative Education Highlight!

Our last program of the year was a cozy and creative affair. We had the pleasure of hosting Scrappy New Year as part of the First Night festivities. Participants of all ages came to create an array of wearable and other fabric-based projects with us. What a great start to the new year!
