FABSCRAP needs your help to save textiles from landfills! Join this special BINGO volunteer session to win extra free fabric.
About this event

FABSCRAP needs your help to save designer textiles from landfill! Volunteers will sort through fabric samples and swatches, separating fabric from paper headers and folding large, usable fabric to be saved for reuse.

During this special BINGO session, if you're the first to find the fiber types, colors, patterns, or specialty fabrics to mark off a row on your Bingo card, you'll win an extra five pounds of free fabric. Each Bingo card will have a variety of easy to find fabrics with a few curveballs for added fun!

We are committed to keeping our volunteers, community, and team safe:

Masks are required to enter the FABSCRAP warehouse and are mandatory on the Brooklyn Army Terminal premises
Volunteer stations are spaced at least 6 feet apart
Cleaning and sanitizing of volunteer stations and frequently touched surfaces will take place between all volunteer sessions
The FABSCRAP team will be wearing masks at all times
Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available
We ask that volunteers cancel their session and stay home if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, and/or gastro-intestinal issues (see additional info from the CDC). Additionally, please cancel your session and stay home if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or had direct contact with an individual diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

Thank you for being part of our work and mission! When you sign up, please consider making a donation to keep us operational as a sustainable resource - FABSCRAP is the only option available for the fashion industry to recycle and redistribute unused material, and the most accessible way for consumers to find saved-from-landfill fabric, trim, leather, and yarn.

Want to get more involved? We are sending monthly invites to become a Reuse Volunteer to those who have volunteered 10+ times! Reuse Volunteers help process materials in our Reuse bins after they leave the initial sorting table. It’s a great opportunity to understand the deconstruction of sample garments, what type of items are donatable or mendable, and how materials are processed for reuse or recyclability. We monitor our Eventbrite registrations closely. If you think you may have completed 10 sorting sessions and did not receive an invitation to sign up, let us know at using the email you register for sessions with.

Please read below for additional information on volunteering, including other changes at the FABSCRAP warehouse due to COVID-19.


What to expect:

Welcome: Intros and overview of FABSCRAP (10 minutes)
Training: Learn how FABSCRAP sorts fabric for recycling (15 minutes)
Sort: Sort through fabric samples and large pieces, pulling out usable fabrics for reuse and removing hardware and paper from fabric swatches for recycling (2.5 hours)
Shop for fabric! (After your session you will have from 12pm-1pm )

***Sorting fabric requires the use of sharp scissors and moderate lifting (20-30 lbs). By registering for a session, you are confirming that you have read, understand, and agree to the volunteer waiver.***

Tips for a successful volunteer session:

Dress comfortably and wear comfortable shoes as most volunteers sort while standing; we can provide chairs if you prefer to sit
Bring your own bag to carry home any material you shop!
We play music, but feel free to bring headphones
Feel free to bring water or beverages with a cap/lid; there are also vending machines in the building
As the weather gets cooler, windows will only be open for ventilation depending on the outside temperature
Please be sure to register for every session you plan to attend, and if you are unable to attend - especially if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or had direct contact with an individual diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days - cancel your ticket so that others may sign up for your space

As a thank-you for completing a 3 hour volunteer session, we’re happy to:

Give you 5 pounds of fabric for FREE and a 30% volunteer discount on any additional material you’d like to purchase… OR
Waive the fee for recycling personal sewing scraps, up to 10 pounds… OR
Sign a community service form

***FABSCRAP is unable to accept used garments or home linens for recycling.***


The FABSCRAP warehouse is located in Building B within the Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT), which is accessible by foot, bike/scooter, car, subway, bus, and ferry. Free indoor and outdoor bike parking is available at BAT Building B entrances. Free, secure on-site parking is available for cars at the Pier 4/NYC Ferry parking lot.

How to locate FABSCRAP within BAT:

From 58th Street: Follow signs for the Pedestrian Entrance. Building B is the building closest to 2nd Avenue and will be the first building you see in front of you. When you enter the building, walk all the way to the back of the lobby and go through the glass doors to the atrium with the train tracks. Walk along the center pathway to the VERY END of the atrium, where you'll go through another glass door. Use the elevator on your right to come up to the 5th floor. Go through the door on your left. ***This route is accessible with ramps and elevators.***
