    Red face Seeking to Donate Fabric for Non-Profit

    Am helping downsize an estate in suburban Philadelphia. Seeking a non-profit near here to which we can donate approx. 6 cartons of quality, useable fabric for quilters -- perhaps connected with a hospital? disabled adults or kids?
    Please advise ASAP. Will deliver.

    You could contact a quilt guild. I know that our quilt guild makes charity quilts.

    Valley Forge Homestead Quilt Guild has a service arm that makes comfort quilts for veterans and children's hospitals and can always use fabric and batting donations. They are in King of Prussia if that is any help. Here is their website http://www.valleyforgequilters.org/

    Our guild makes donation/comfort quilts for foster children and for the underprivledged children, we alos make adult bibs (they look like aprons instead of bibs) and lap quilts for nursing homes....Too bad we're not in your area. Guess Texas is too far to deliver, huh?
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    If you are looking for a charitable write-off for the estate, make sure you donate to a qualifying NPO. They aren't all the same.
