Donating Fabric and Sewing Materials
Donations are currently being accepted at our office location by appointment only.
All donated items must meet all our donation guidelines. If you have questions about your donation or you can’t find a date that work for you please contact us, we'll be happy to assist you.
Please note for the safety of our staff and the community, we have implemented a no-contact drop-off process.
If you are donating a heavy item please bring someone to help you to unload the item and wear a mask or mouth covering during the drop-off process.

We DO accept:
- Fabric must be clean, non-sewn and in good condition
- Fabrics of all kinds that are 1 meter +
- Sewing related supplies: rotary cutters, cutting mats, scissors, quilting materials, patterns with all their pieces
If you would like to donate a domestic or industrial sewing machine, they must be in working condition, please review the guidelines below:
It's hard to say "no thank you" to a donation when those donations would help to fund our sewing programs. However, we do need to turn away some items for being non-recyclable or we cannot use them for our sewing programs.
What we cannot accept:
– Clothing (new or used)
– Partially assembled projects
– Bedding, tablecloths, towels or curtains
– Scrap remnants (including upholstery samples)
– Embroidery, weaving, macrame materials and tools
– Craft materials (pipe cleaners, glue, construction paper)
– Sewing cabinets or other sewing furniture
EcoEquitable is a small organization. Please be mindful of our requirements when donating.
If you have a large quantity of fabric to donate (more than 8 large bags or totes), please contact us at info (at) ecoequitable (dot) ca
EcoEquitable is a registered charity and can offer tax receipts.
For donations of over $1,000, the CRA requires the donation to come with an independent appraisal of the donation value (ie. receipts or independent verification). Please contact us at the time of donation to ensure that we get everything in order.
Charitable tax receipts will only be issued if the donation meets our requirements for usable textiles. All donations will be checked by staff before donation will be accepted.
