Up-Stitch is a 501(c)3 nonprofit creative reuse organization that collects donated fabric, yarn, and other sewing and needlework materials to distribute and sell back to the crafting community at an affordable rate. We endeavor to keep useful material out of landfills, facilitate creativity, and increase environmental awareness throughout the Capital District.
Our goal is to improve the planet by reducing our local carbon footprint through the recycling of fabric and yarn. By re-circulating these materials to the community, we keep them out of dumps and put them back into the hands of people that can use them. We offer an alternative, unique, local choice for sewers and knitters to shop. We create a sense of community that comes with sharing and helping others in their quest to create.
