We do take donations at any time that we're open. Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.

Thank you for your patience and persistence with our new system. If you do not get an appointment, but have items that are in high demand (quilt shop quality fabric and good quality yarn) we will put you on a waiting list.
Please consult our website for updated lists on items that we are not taking. Our previous guidelines still apply: a limit of 3 boxes or large bags per drop off, we will not pay for items that smell like moth balls, smoke or mustiness, or items covered in pet hair.
Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.
We would like to remind everyone about our ongoing outreach of making Fidget Quilts for Alzheimer and dementia patients. Fidget Quilts are lap sized quilts that provide sensory and tactile stimulation for the restless hands of someone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, ADD or an autism spectrum disability. Here is a great video showing you how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhojSOjTAn4
We want to thank the ladies from Foothills EGA for helping to put together our kits, come by and pick one or two up! Also, we will be holding a work day for Fidget Quilts in our classroom on Wednesday, April 18th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Also, if you know of someone or a facility that could use the quilts, please let us know. We want to get the quilts into the hands of those who can use them.”
