About the Garage Sale

The Annual Textile Center Garage Sale is the largest fundraiser for Textile Center each year.  All proceeds support Textile Center’s programs and services throughout the year including classes, library, summer camps, gallery exhibitions and much more. Textile Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.

This year our goal is to make the Garage Sale a No Waste Event.  That means that we are making every effort to make sure that everything that is left over from the sale is re-used, recycled or compostable.  How can you help?  We encourage you to bring your donations in containers and bags that can be re-used and/or recycled.
