    I have finally gotten rid of some of mine. Gave them away to people who wanted them... Then turned around and would find a great deal on ebay and order again. I don't think there is much hope for me.

    You could scan the articles you want and keep on a CD, then donate to a quilt group or as I do a church run thrift shop that helps the poor. I tied to donate some embrodiery books to a guild but they no longer had their library, same with a quilt club. I finally told both of them to sell them amongst themselves and use the proceeds to pay for a class for the group, they liked that idea. Get one of those hand held scanners might be easier than the scanner/printer machines. Take care.

    Thanks, ladies. I never thought of a scanner! Am off to research that option.

    My small quilt guild does not have a library or librarian, and they do not have any space that could be used as a library. They are asking for someone to start a library, and I would love to volunteer both my stuff and my services, but there's no way I could cart books and magazines back and forth to guild meetings. No SUV here! (Not to mention my bad back, knees, etc.)

    I think ultimately I will try to sell the magazine collections (usually a couple of year's worth in their own special 3-ring binders) as collections, and give away the stack of miscellaneous mags.

    alot of people cut out the patterns they want and put them in the plastic page covers and keep them in a binder.
    Then the books that are still good can be sold , donated. For example quilt guilds, senior citizens that are on limited income. In san diego at the quilt club you could put them on a table on the way in and those who wanted to could pick what they wanted.
