One of the things Sims Patrick Studio loves to do is to find ways to give back to our community. In early December, Natalia and a couple of other designers were thinking about the homeless men, women and children in Atlanta. Since we work with companies that always have large fabric samples, they thought, "We could sew blankets from these samples!"
They reached out to some of our reps to ask if they might have samples they no longer use that they could donate. Little did we know just how generous they would be! Large fabric samples were delivered by the truckload in some cases!
Our designers have been taking the samples home to wash and sew together to make blankets!
While we do not need more fabric samples right now, we are still taking donations of batting for inside the blankets, thread and gently used full blankets, until January 15th. If you would like to donate any blankets, please bring them to our office (click for the address).
Thank you to the companies who’ve donated so far!
