The 17th annual World's Largest Textile Garage Sale

The 17th annual World’s Largest Textile Garage Sale

Your Guide to the Textile Garage Sale

So much more than a garage sale … It’s a celebration of fiber & thrift!

Are you an artist, student, crafter, church group, guild doing charity work, or just love a bargain? Here’s how it works: Individuals and businesses donate fabric, yarn, thread, notions, kits, patterns, books, beads, buttons, sewing machines, tools, looms, specialty equipment – a warehouse full of fiber finds! These treasures are then resold at garage sale prices to YOU. Donations are tax deductible, & it all benefits Textile Center’s programs.


Donations  of Materials Accepted

When: Thursday, April 20 from 10 am to 7 pm

Where: U of M ReUse Warehouse  at 883 29th Ave SE, Minneapolis
Follow 29th Ave East, take a right onto Weeks Ave, then first right into the ReUse driveway.
We will have volunteers available to help you unload your car.

Are you a business with a huge stash to donate? Are you moving and need to donate your stash before April 20? Call Textile Center and we can accommodate! Textile Center is a 501 (c) 3, so all donations are tax-deductible!
