    I am in great need of some fabric. I make and then donate numerous amounts of lap blankets for anyone who is wheelchair bound, regular full size blankets for the homeless, Goodwill, Salvation Army & Numerous Local Thrift Shops and to peopleless fortunate. I donate to two different hospitals for sick children. I already used everything that I have in my sewing room, and I have already spent a lot of money on fabric. My husband is going to kill me, but I need to help people. So can anyone donate some fabric to me to help people who need to stay warm but can’t on their own? I also make little dolls and teddy bears for children for Christmas. If you have any lace, ribbon, thread, poly-fil Anything would be a tremendous help… Thank You Kindly. My name is Trisha, and my email is . Again thank you for helping…
