    I have a bunch of fabric, mostly from the 70's. Things like suiting which looks like the 50's, corduroy, some polyester, stuff I have no idea what it is. The sizes are weird. Is this something any of you would be interested in. I really have more then I can sew in a life time. The textures of some of it is wonderful. Much of it makes great bags, appliques shapes. None of it is really quilting material, yet I have used it for everything. This one picture gives you an idea.

    I like to use a variety of materials for bags and many other projects that I am working on.

    also, if you want to just pass it on...a local senior center would love your donation, they usually have members who sew...and they have no money to spend on things like that. also, schools art departments, care facilities, women's resource center; habitat for humanity...many places would put your old fabrics to great use!

    I guess it would depend on the fabric.

    At this point I have too much into it to just give away. Over 6 tons were given away to a variety of local charities in the original sorting of it.

    A suggestion for selling it...maybe by the box (small, medium or large priority mail box) and include shipping in the price, with a varity of fabs colors and sizes(yardage and partials)
