Note: I will be giving this fabric to a high school. Thanks for the idea! It is probably worth at least $1500. I think a charitable donation is right up my alley.

I am giving up my stash of fabrics. I just don't have time to sew. I have decided to keep three boxes and get rid of seven. They are nice fabrics. If you live in the Kennesaw, Georgia area and are willing to pick them up I will give them to the first person who wants them. I am desperate to get them out of my house.

That is so sweet of you ... have you considered taking some photos and selling the fabric in the classifieds here? Just a thought ... Nice fabric is worth a lot of money! I'd certainly look at your classifieds!!

I ended up giving quite a bit of fabrics that I didn't want to two local high schools for their sewing classes and their teachers were SO grateful. They have alot of low-income students who cannot afford good fabric, so keep that in mind too.

That's a good idea Deborah. Retirement homes might be another good place.

I don't live too far from Kennesaw and it's a mighty tempting offer! But I know I barely have time to go to Chattanooga and I'm two exits away most nights!!

I hope your fabric finds just the right place!

I'm so glad I saw this thread. I just culled a huge garbage bag of patterns. I was going to drop them off at a thrift store, but think I will give them to my son's private school instead. They are trying to start up a home ec program with sewing.

I think you have inspired me to make another run through my stuff and make another donation of winter/fall stuff.

I've found freecycle to be a very easy way to find my loved ones a new home Freecycle. Find the chapter nearest you. Whenever I've posted fabric, I've had takers within hours. Usually post "easy porch pickup" and just print out the person's email and attach it to the boc or bag. When I come home from work, the fabric's been picked up.

Also can consider the groups that sew charity items, such as premie kimonos and blankets as well as heart shaped pillows for breast cancer and heart patients. The pillows serve function that is assisted by their shape and contribute to the comfort of the surgery patients by supporting certain parts of the body. Also, there are various charities that train people with disabilities to do work or who employee them. So upholstery fabric might be used by Salvation Army to reupholster donated items for sale and for training.
