Want to Help?

Our Fabric Arts Studio and supplies (Studio Details) are available to all members from beginner to advanced to make items for the groups we support.

TAGOR gratefully accepts cotton fabrics for quilts and shopping bags.  If you have a half meter or more of other fabrics these are accepted by thrift stores.  Richmond now recycles fabric so other fabric can be taken to the Ironwood Recycling Center. 

We also make bags from Richmond Street Banners for sale.  Proceeds purchase supplies to support our charity work.  Banner bags can be purchased at the Steveston Museum, 3811 Moncton Street.

Join us…  Your work will find its way to local residents facing financial and health challenges to bring warmth through knowing that someone cares.
