Our Social Fabric (OSF) is a textile recycling initiative that has been in operation since 2009. In October 2015 we closed our storefront on Hastings Street and prepared to re-locate with our non-profit partners, Common Thread and Craftworks. OSF receives donations of textiles, fabric and sewing related supplies from the film industry, theatre, manufacturing, estate closures together with home sewers and artists. Our team of volunteers sort through the donations and offer them back to the community at drastically reduced prices. Our goal is to keep textiles out of the landfill and into the hands of crafters, sewers and artists in our community.

Please use our Venables Street entrance: Enter the GREY door marked 1275 Venables located beside the three grey south facing loading bay doors labelled B C D. Walk through the loading bay area towards the freight elevator and up the stairs to the third floor. Follow the signs to OSF. Click on link for Google Map We usually have a volunteer operating the elevator, however, if you know you need elevator service please email us a few days prior to the sale and we will send you a contact telephone number to use during the sale to call for elevator assistance.
