Blythswood visited Uist again recently to pick up the textiles which have been collected during the past few months from the Uist based textile banks held by Cothrom and Share, and donations to UCVO.
Thank you to all who have donated to our textile banks over the past few months, the van was full leaving Uist. A big thanks to all the volunteers who undertake the collections in the ReStore van throughout the year and to the team for assisting with the transfer to the Blythswood lorry.
Just a wee reminder that it really helps if clothes are sealed in bags and the bags are not overfilled, this reduces the chances of them getting wet and increases the chances of items being usable at their end destination.
ReStore welcome textiles suitable for use in upholstery and up cycling directly at the shop, so good condition, clean items such as curtains, cushions and heavy fabrics such as cord, tweed. These can be delivered to the shop or in bags clearly marked on the outside as for ReStore in the textile banks.
