I am excited to be working with ReUse Works on a new textile venture. Following the basic model of their Appliance Depot they will provide job training for low income folks while keeping items out of the landfill. This time instead of repairing refrigerators and dishwashers, it will be a variety of fabric based projects, from collaboration with local designers to bundled rags for use in machine shops.
We need to collect as much information as possible in this grant writing and business plan writing stage of the process. So if you haven't already, and you do any sort of crafts with fabric in whatcom county, please fill out this survey by clicking here.
Thanks so much. I'll keep you posted on the project and how you can participate as it develops in the coming year.
