Choose items and take them home. We have mirrors, but no dressing rooms, so plan accordingly. Leftovers are donated to charity. All clothing sizes welcome.

    The Sew: Bring fabric items you want to mend, your sewing machine if you have one (we will have some available) and any sewing notions you need or want to donate (thread, buttons, patches, pins, etc.) Coaches from Swap-o-rama-rama (http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-Swap-O-Rama-Rama/) will be on hand to consult on repairs to your favorite fabric/textile items and to teach you to sew or to help reacquaint you with your sewing machine!

    The Fix: Bring your sewing machine if it needs repair or a tune-up or if you need help (re) learning to use it. We'll help you get back to sewing!

    How it works:
    Walk around your house with your children and have them help identify books, toys and puzzles they no longer use. Make sure everything is working properly, has all its pieces and is clean. Pack up a box, bring them down to the Albany Community Center, and take home a few ‘new to you’ items.

    Clean toys thoroughly beforehand * Toys must be gently used and in working order * No missing pieces * No stuffies
