Scraps of Seal Skin and Fox Fur: FREE in Iqaluit

Throughout the year of 2021, the sewing programs used a lot of sealskin and fox fur for projects in Iqaluit. After lots of different kinds of scraps began piling up, the Iqaluit office decided to give out free ziplock bags with scraps that could be used for sewing, arts, and crafts projects!

If you have scraps that are good quality and have the 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. Qujannamiik!
