    If you still need fabric, suggest you try manufacturers, or company such as Fabricville. A few years ago I was delighted to be given huge rolls of fabric for a ‘good cause’ event. Not new, but immaculately laundered, sheets also appeared. A tax receipt might be appreciated, but that was not my experience. Collection, of course, is necessary.
    You might also be lucky by asking wholesalers/retailers, kitchen suppliers, restaurants, etc. for some items on your wish list. Companies are often upgrading or have old stock.
    Good luck.
