Hi Ladies,

Well this year I decided to bite the bullet and .......gasp...... clean out my stash. I guess I could take the yardage to the local thrift shop but I'm not sure if they want it. Does anyone know of any worthy causes that will accept it?

Try Girl Scout troops, Chruch Groups, see if there are any guilds in your area.
Also try "Freecycle" at I was able to donate a bunch of scraps to a quilting groups that saw my notice there. Just find the Freecycle in your area.

Vickie if you have a Senior Citizens Center in your area, they would be delighted to have your fabric, I'm sure.

Newborns in Need or any of the other organizations that sew for babies would be interested in your stash. I cleaned out a lot of mine by actually sewing preemie gowns but they would be very happy to get donations of fabric.
