Event description

Description

Bring your unloved fabric, patterns and yarn to the Great Baltimore Destash.

Here's how it works: Donate your fabric and 'shop' what other donors bring that day. Don't worry about having to take your leftovers home! We'll donate/recycle what's left for you.

If donating, please arrive at noon for sorting and organizing.

If just 'shopping' you'll need to buy your $10 ticket at the door the day of event.

Download a label HERE for your fabric, yarn and attach to your donated stash. You'll need to measure your yardage / weigh your yarn before it's donated. We'll also have some labels available for you at the door. And, volunteers on hand to help with sorting and measuring.

For patterns, make note if it is incomplete (maybe you cut it at some point and a piece is missing). We'll have patterns organzied by size range on various tables.



FAQs

Can I sell my items?

Not this time. We'll gauge interest and consider adding a 'for sale' component for the next event.


Can I just 'shop'? I'm a beginner and don't have anyting to donate??

Yes! You'll need to purchase a $10 admission at the door the day of event. But, if you bring even just one item, your ticket is $5.


I just want to donate because I'm clearing out a relative's stash/ will never sew again / can't attend the day of. Is that an option?

Yes! Please contact me to organize drop off / pick up.


I can't make it on Sunday but I have items to donate. Can I still give them to you?

Yes! Please contact me to organize drop off / pick up.


What can I donate?

Fabric: Quilting, fashion, home dec.

Patterns: Paper patterns only please for adults, kids, whatever you have. No PDF print outs, please.

Yarn: Yes! We do prefer natural fiber blend yarns as acrylic yarns are readily available and harder to donate / recycle.

Books: Yes! Bring your craft related books to donate to the swap.


Is there a minimum yardage?

Fat Quarters and 1/2 yard for fashion fabric.


Can I bring, knitting needles, scissors, rulers, thread, etc?

Yes. We'll have a miscellany table set up.


How should I prep my fabric or yarn?

Please attach a label (download here) to all donated yardage. You'll need to know the width and length of the fabric. All fabric will be 'contained' with rubber bands that we'll have at the event. So, please bring it neatly folded and labeled.


How will the swap portion work?

There will be rounds of selection based on the number of attendees and amount donated.


Do you need any volunteers?

Yes! I could use about ten volunteers to come at 11:30 am to help with set up, checking and breakdown. If you're available, please let me know. Thank you!


What happens to the leftovers?

Fabric, tools, supplies, patterns will be donated to Scrap-B'more. What they don't accept will be recycled or donated to Goodwill. Books will go to the non profit, A Book Thing in Baltimore.


Will there be food?

There won't be food onsite. But, there are several restuarants within walking distance of Union Mill including Artifact Coffee next door, Woodberry Kitchen and Blue Pit BBQ and Whiskey Bar across the street. We're also a quick drive from Hampden which has a large assortment of restaurants.


Will there be wine?

We will have a few boxes of wine and glasses to share :-).


I'm not from Baltimore, can I still come?

Of course! The more the merrier!
