Scraps of Seal Skin and Fox Fur: FREE in Iqaluit

Community Event
November 24, 2021

Over the last year, the sewing programs have used a lot of sealskin and fox fur for projects in Iqaluit. Now there are lots of different kinds of scraps piling up! These scraps can be used for sewing, arts and crafts projects!

We will be giving out FREE ziplocks of scraps on December 1 at 1 p.m. in Iqaluit. Pickup at ELC office 350 (CBC back door). Limited per person.

If you have scraps that are good quality and have potential to be made into something, you are welcome to donate them to the scraps drive! Please do not bring scraps that can no longer be used.
