Does anyone know of a non profit organization that is interested of taking all types of remnant fabric that they don't know what to do with.
I would like some of the fabric but I can not produce a receipt for the fabric they are willing to donate to.
Would any nonprofit organization will be interested of taking these fabric and return give them a receipt so they could write off from there books.

I'm not sure I understand you question but if you have remnant fabrics that you want to get rid of, call your local quilt shop and see if they have charity sewers that could use it. I don't think they can give you a receipt for it. At QIAD, a group of ladies meets each month to sew quilts for a local abused women/children center. All of their fabric is donated. If you need a receipt, you can donate the fabric to Goodwill or Salvation Army stores. They offer tax receipts.

I just took a set of dishes to the Salvation Army and they gave me a blank receipt to fill out for my taxes.You might try there. Bev

Ask around at fabric shops for the name and phone number of a quilt guild. They would be very happy to have the fabric as quilt guilds make quilts to give to charities. Like a childrens hosp, orphanage, shelters for abused women and their children, for the homeless and i'm sure for many other organizations.

I sew with a group of ladies from my community. We make pillowcases for our children's hospital. We would be glad to take any fabric in 1 yard pieces to make pillowcases.
Thanks so much.

Not quite sure I understand, but I recently went to a quilt shop, anyone could donate fabric, customer paid whatever they wanted and the money was donated to non-profit in this case Kidney Foundation.. The shop wanted only cash for fabrics and it would be a one time receipt from Kidney..
Does this info help?

I have been told that Salvation Army and Goodwill send yardage to a rag recycler. I have never found yardage at either store. A nearby shop run by volunteers does sometimes put out some nice fabric.
