Help Textile Center at our 18th Annual World's Largest Textile Garage Sale! We need volunteers to help make this event a success as floor helpers, cashier assistants, loaders, zero waste assistants, and other related tasks. All activities take place at the U of MN's ReUse Center. Saturday volunteers are invited to attend the Friday Preview Party for free! If you would like to stash any sale items, your selections will be held until after the completion of your volunteer shifts on Saturday.

It's a win-win situation for everyone: individuals and businesses donate textiles and related items that might otherwise be bound for the landfill, shoppers are able to purchase anything and everything textile-related (fabric, yarn, sewing machines, crafting books, patterns, etc.) for garage sale prices. This event supports Textile Center's mission to honor textile traditions, promote excellence and innovation, and inspire widespread participation in fiber art.
