  2. You dig, search and swim through piles and piles of fabric notions and clothes
  3. You stuff as much into the bag as humanly possible

Date: Saturday, February 5th and Sunday, February 6th, 2011
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Location: 33 Commercial Drive, Vancouver - the maple leaf storage facility at Powell Street

Our Social Fabric is a group of individuals that work to establish a viable, socially responsible non-profit organization in Vancouver's downtown east side community. Their focus is to specialize in textile collection, recycling and re-manufacturing, while providing employment and social reintegration opportunities for residents of the community.
