SeamsAndScissors Hosts Successful Fabric Drive for Charity

June 01 , 2015

Northbrook, IL—Prime Publishing’s sewing blog hosted a fabric contest last month where readers sent in extra fabric that was then donated to a non-profit organization. hosted the charity drive June 1 through June 25 that asked readers to send to Prime old fabric to donate to Urban Threads Studio, or UTS, for their summer camp incentive for children.

Urban Threads Studio, a not-for-profit organization, located at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, Illinois, teach problem solving skills through textile arts. Each summer, they host a summer camp for kids in the area, and this summer was no different. They are learning how to sew shorts, dresses, pajama bottoms, and messenger bags.

“I first found out about UTS at Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago,” said Nicola Prybell, a Prime Publishing editor. “I just always had this idea that we could help them in some way. Being able to launch this fabric charity drive has been a fantastic experience.”

To give a little incentive to the readers, SeamsandScissors offered a free giveaway of a Bias Tape Maker, donated to them by Simplicity, that readers would automatically be entered to win when they donated.

SeamsandScissors collected so much fabric that it took them two trips with six helping hands to bring it down from the office to the minivan. The UTS Representative, Ilona, was concerned about all the giant black trash bags of fabric not completely fitting in the car. Luckily with a little coaxing, all the fabric fit perfectly and UTS ecstatic with the amount of donations they received.


“Seeing how generous readers were, and seeing the look on Ilona’s face when she was how much fabric was donated was truly priceless. It’s what made all of this hard work so worthwhile,” said Prybell.


The success of this charity drive further demonstrates the generosity of the Prime Publishing community. Prime Publishing, LLC continues to work with various charities each year to help those in need.
