Up-Stitch Up-Stitch is a creative reuse organization that collects sewing materials and sells them back to the crafting community at an affordable rate.

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 landfills 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.

Our Mission

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.

Thanks so much for a wonderful shop-I spent a great hour on Saturday!
just got a message that you have updated your hours, I can't see it
Here's another beautiful rainbow -- at our #HoweBranch on Schuyler St! We love seeing these amazing, hopeful works of art popping up across the city at our library buildings. Many thanks to organizer/artist Melissa Sarris for creating the rainbow project, and the weavers who helped make the Howe rainbow, including Maureen Feeney, Sandy Knight, and Maggie Erlich of Up-Stitch! #LibrariesAreForEveryone #APLRainbows #518RainbowHunt #AlbanyNY
#APLRainbows keep appearing at our branches! This wonderful rainbow is at the #DelawareBranch on Delaware Ave. Thanks to organizer/artist Melissa Sarris, and everyone who worked on this piece, including Megan Stasi of Up-Stitch, Sandy Knight, Janet Poole, and Maureen Feeney. Language translation thanks to Dahlia Herring, Joann Bisogno, Mu Too, Taw Nay Htoo, Rebecca Alberti, and Debbie Taylor! #518RainbowHunt #LibrariesAreForEveryone #AlbanyNY
We've joined the #518RainbowHunt with help from artist Melissa Sarris and Megan Stasi from Up-Stitch. This handmade rainbow hangs at the main entrance to the #PineHillsBranch. Thank you to everyone who helped make and hang this lovely rainbow -- Sandy Knight, Janet Poole, Maureen Feeney and Begum Shajadi! Watch for more #APLRainbows around the city. #LibrariesAreForEveryone
I have two medical establishments asking for medical masks. I can't make enough myself! Contact me directly for directions and more info. Fight the virus with your sewing machine! Help save a doctor or nurse's life.
I'm supposed to be doing a local craft fair on Dec. 7-8 and found I have a conflict on the afternoon of the 8th. I hate to cancel. Would anyone be able to cover for me for a few hours? I can return the favor another day! Would be willing to pay if necessary, but this fair is likely to be more a labor of love than a money-maker.
This is a great little shop. I go here before I go to the big store across town. The prices are very fair. I just wish more people knew about this place
Already used some of the fabric I bought on Sunday! This is a bag to use on a walker.
I am so excited to hear about Up-Stitch! Can't wait to get involved!
Think I will visit this weekend and bring donations
