    What to do with boxes of quilt magazines

    I have 8-10 boxes of quilt magazines. In 2 weeks they need to either find a new home or they will have to be thrown away. Anybody have any suggestions? They are pretty much all over the board as to which magazines they are.

    Maybe donate them to Goodwill or Salvation Army? I think a lot of people on this board would like them, but could probably not get rid of them in 2 weeks. Good luck.

    Donate, you know they'll find a good home. Quilters shop all the time in thrift shoppes, Goodwill & Salvation Army.
    Don't throw away you'll make a quilter happy somewhere in your area.

    Why don't you donate them to your local quilt guild. Even if you're not a member, maybe you know someone who is. Those magazines would be coveted by other quilters and would certainly be put to good use.

    If there is a guild un your area that puts on a show, they may have a boutique or sales area at the show for quilt-related things such as this.

    Call a local quilt guild , and see if they want them. My sister has a shop , and sometimes people bring back old magazines ,so she has a "free" pile . I noticed some of the LQS will have a "free" pile of magazines but they put them in the classroom, so those attending classes get to pick.
    GoodWill is always a choice. Maybe if any church has a quilting group they might like them.
    You could offer them here in ( in bundles) the donation section, with the recipient paying postage.

    I use to donate them to my guild's free table but it was always full of magazines. Now I donate them to a local nursing home. The ladies and even the men loved looking at the quilts. Everyone had a long remembered quilt story. The employees said they were the most looked at magazines.
    Got fabric?
