Community Fabric/Yarn Supply Sale and Stitch Buffalo Benefit
Saturday 6th Apr, 2019
At Stitch Buffalo's "Second Stitch" pop-up sales, we repurpose donated materials that cannot be used by our refugee artists in their Stitch Buffalo creations. All proceeds go directly to sustaining Stitch Buffalo programming. Items for sale include: yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks, quilting and apparel fabric, thread, zippers, buttons, and SO MUCH MORE at huge discounts—typically at least 75% OFF retail prices. It's a perfect opportunity to stock up on supplies you need, rescue items for reuse, and save money! We hope you can bring these materials to life in your own creations. Prices start at $.25 for bags of notions. Fill a 14x14 bag with quilting cotton for $3. Knitting needle and crochet hooks start at $1. Yarns starting at $.25/bag. High-end yarns at 75% off retail. Most fabrics $2/yard or less. Reconditioned sewing machines starting at $40.

Stitch Buffalo was founded in 2014 and began with the simple desire to gather and create. We aim to empower refugee women of Buffalo by providing meaningful work and a fair wage. Like the domino effect, this small but powerful financial independence infuses each woman, her family and in turn, her community. Through the creation of beautiful, handcrafted textiles, she is nurturing her cultural heritage while assuring her self-worth as a woman and a human being.
We have grown into a thriving community of over 55 women from Bhutan, Burma, Nepal, Thailand and Angola. Each week these women come together to form a Refugee Women’s Workshop, sewing handcrafted goods for sale within the community.
