FABSCRAP Volunteer: Friday, April 7 - AM Session
Fri, April 7, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
FABSCRAP needs help to sort all the fabric it receives from designers. It's easy to learn and fun to do. In exchange for a full session, you may keep any fabric you like! Yes, as much as you like or can carry - for free!
What to expect:
Tour of FABSCRAP (10 minutes)
Training: Learn Hour to Sort (20 minutes)
Sort! (2 hours)
Shop (30 minutes)
Some tips for a successful volunteer session:
Dress comfortably and wear comfortably shoes
Bring an extra bag to carry your free fabric
Bring a book to read on the train to and from the warehouse - it's about an hour from Manhattan
There will be music on in the warehouse, but feel free to bring headphones
There are few lunch options in Jamaica, so bring water and snacks if you need them
PLEASE NOTE: Sorting fabric requires the use of sharp scissors and some moderate lifting (20-30lbs). If this is of concern, please let us know when you arrive.
READ THESE DIRECTIONS: The warehouse is located at 184-10 Jamaica Avenue. It's just a short walk from the last stop on the F train (179th Street), or you can take the Q110 bus from the last stop on the E train (Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer) to 184th street (which is right in front of the warehouse). You'll see IDEAL BUILDING above the door. Come up to the 4th floor and wait by the elevators. I will meet you there to escort you to the sorting area. Please arrive on time for the start of your session - we will only wait 5 minutes before heading inside.
Thank you so much for volunteering! FABSCRAP works because of the enthusiasm and effort of people like you.
