    My best friend, a quilter and fabric collector died of cancer a few years ago. To say I was devastated is an understatement. Her husband asked me to clean out her studio. I took the major things I could use, then asked another of her friends to help me clean out. We divided the fabric we could use, then took all the rest.......and had a party with all of our quilt friends. We piled all the fabric on a huge table and each person took turns taking a piece of fabric they wanted, and then we went around again and again until all the fabric was gone.
    Now, several years later, my quilt friends say...."I've used a 'Jane' fabric in this quilt". A great way to remember a friend.

    Boy, I agree with you on the Goodwill price subject. I too no longer donate to them because they resale for high prices!! I now take everything to Union Mission.

    I know I for one who are making quilts for veterans are always looking for donations and fabric people are willing to sell cheaper than we can buy them. Churches alot of them have ladies groups who make quilts for the homeless in just any kind of fabric that is donated to them.
    Lots of way to part with what you don't need.
    And to be honest Goodwill at least around here prices are crazy. They charge more than the discounts store charge for the fabric per yardage.
    I use to danate to them alot till I seen prices of clothes there and other items. Now I donate to the Hospitals resale shop. Not only do they have really cheap prices they donate the items to the shelter here after a certain amount of time.

    Update: Well, I got to go to visit the gentleman with the quilter supplies and stash...It was soo much stuff, at first I stood there with my mouth open..LOL. He opened 3 large cabinets full to the brim with fabric!! There were boxes upon boxes of fabric!! He let me take a large garbage bag full along with 4 other ladies he had invited to get some goodies.. I piled in all the cotton I could find. His sister is coming down to get what she wants and then he will call us back to clean out the rest.. I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance.. Oh, did I say the fabric was in PERFECT condition. no smells, no stains...she was very neat, tidy and love, loved, loved fabric!!!

I know cotton is always good, but what other fabrics are good for quilting. He told me I could take as much as I wanted before he dontated the reminder to goodwill or salvation army...I am so exicted!! He said there was enough stuff to take up 2 cars!! So my sisters and I are taking both vehicles and going to load up!!
