Remainders Pasadena's New Home!

$1,544 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 15 months
Remainders Creative Reuse was founded in 2014 and since then we have been working toward finding a permanent home. We currently run all programs out of Robin's (the founder) home studio -- a really versatile garage! With the generosity of all who have been involved with Remainders, we have vastly outgrown it!

The new space is located in Pasadena, and we are aiming for a move-in date in the first week of January, and a big grand opening in February 2018. 

We are asking for your help to raise funds to get the space ready for our main activities:
- Materials upcycling and distribution (low cost to community members, no cost for teachers!)
- Organizing in-kind donations
- Community events
- Art and sewing classes
- Local artist boutique

Here are some specific needs we are raising money for:
- large utility sink
- workshop tables, chairs, workbenches
- storage furnishings, shelves, crates 
- LED lighting (as eco friendly as possible!)
- signage
Over the past three years, we've amassed a community of just under 1000 people, and this new space will enable us to reach many more! We are so grateful to those of you that have accompanied us from the start, and look forward to meeting more and more makers and artists!

The Grand Opening was a smashing success. It's onward and upward from now. This campaign will close on March 3rd, so if you've been meaning to give, now is your chance. Come see us at the new store for some inspiration!

Our new address is 1713 East Walnut Street, Pasadena… Grand Opening is February 10th
Woo Hoo! Join Us!

This past year, Remainders has grown so much that it is time to move to a new facility to better serve the community. In our new location we will have even more raw materials for every creative activity. The new facility will allow us to expand in so many ways. We will have:

--Weekly Workshops for all ages – sewing, printmaking, collage, quilting, crochet, painting, etc.
--A great roster of Teaching Artists and Makers committed to creating great low-cost programs
--Scholarships for all of our programs: after-school, seniors, students and families
--Volunteer and High School service opportunities
--Free giveaways for Educators and Artists
--Boutique where goods by local Artists and Makers, from repurposed materials, are sold
--Regular hours to better serve the community – Wednesdays thru Saturdays … and much more

Giving to others gives us our purpose:

We are so thankful to teachers, artists and parents, for the important work they do and are thrilled to continue to support any activity that nurtures creativity in all ages by supplying them with low and no cost materials and learning opportunities. We are happy to have supported:

--PUSD Families in Transition/Share-a-Meal Thanksgiving with Arts and Crafts supplies
--Descanso Gardens Art Programming with Supplies
--Pasadena District 1 Pancake Breakfast with a Free T-shirt printing workshop
--One Colorado Open Market with a Free T-shirt printing workshop
--Creative Wellness Institute with Supplies for Art Therapy programs
--Countless teachers
--Los Angeles Parks Dance Program with Costuming materials… just to name a few

We are committed to keeping the stream of repurposed materials flowing because there are so many generous humans, doing things for others, who need low and no-cost materials to pay it forward. We have been honored to help:

--Home schoolers making blankets for new mothers in Ecuador
--High school girls making personal hygiene packages for girls in Africa
--Seniors making crocheted blankets and clothing for premature infants
--Young adults teaching and giving art supplies to local under-served youth
--Teachers spending their own money to supply their classrooms
--Artists teaching others all over Los Angeles County
--Costumes for Capoeira/Drumming students in Salvador, Brazil (a Remainders international project)
… and many more

Times change and taxes may too, so you may want to give before Dec. 31. Let’s make 2018 better than ever with a new space, new programs and ambitious new creative projects! We appreciate your support at any level. All gifts are fully tax deductible.

If you have already donated, thank you VERY much. We look forward to creating with you!
See you here on February 10, 2018
We've got lots to give and lots to do!
