Scraps & Skeins: Creative Reuse for the Benefit of Strawberry Fields
Scraps & Skeins — Voted Best New Retail Store (2nd Place) by State College Magazine Readers in 2015 — is a creative reuse store which through the rescue and resale of sewing, knitting, quilting and other such materials supports Strawberry Fields’ programs. Our store mission is multi-faceted: to provide job development opportunities for men and women facing mental health challenges; to offer the community affordable creative materials beautifully arranged in an inviting shop, to offer an outlet for knitters and quilters to pass on overflow materials, to save reusable textiles from the landfill, and to promote the concept that reuse is beautiful!
The shop is located directly behind Strawberry Fields, At 3054 Enterprise Drive, State College PA 16801. The shop is open every Thursday from 10-4 and Saturday when announced.
