How to Donate
We rely heavily on the kindness and compassion of our local community, and are so thankful for the regular fabric donations that we receive. Donated fabric supplies provide assistance to our alterations and repairs team, and to our Cert III Textiles students. Many of our students don't have the expendable income for fabric and haberdashery, and having access to our storeroom directly enriches their tertiary education. Keep on reading to find out ways you can donate to Second Stitch.
Sewing Supplies: Fabric (both smaller pieces and by the roll), cotton thread, zips, elastic, trims, and haberdashery can all be donated.
Machines: Straight sewers and overlockers are also welcome donations. These can either be used by Second Stitch during workshops or gifted on to our students.
Financial Donations: We also accept financial donations. As a non-for-profit organisation, your donation is tax deductible.
Volunteer: Donating your time is also a huge helping hand. Head over to our volunteer page to find out different ways you can get involved with the team at Second Stitch.
If you're thinking of donating, please get in touch! Please also make sure all donations are clean, not dusty, and neatly packed. We spend many hours sorting donations, and taking those initial steps really helps our staff.
