    is it because you want more or because you are tired of them?

    Uhhhh :oops: I don't think I can part with any of them LOL

    I would start with the ones that just don't catch my eye anymore, if I was going to destash :D:D:D

    Me? I still have bits & pieces of fabrics from when I started 20 yrs ago. Have a good excuse tho, I do mostly scrappy,so it'll all show up somewhere.

    After I have used a piece of material and saved the leftovers for my scrap bin, then used those scraps a few times, I get tired of looking at that same material so i will pass it on! thats really the only way

    I would love to see some of y'alls stashes..

    Mine is out of control. I spent about 4 hours today straightening just one 5' bookshelf that has my fruit, food, nautical, sports and birthday prints and I counted 20 different cherry prints.

    I have 3 pattern cabinets that are full.. each has 4 or 5 drawers (yes "real pattern cabinets" from when Piece Goods Shop closed down in our town), along with close to 12 bookshelves and numerious plastic containers that are sorted by holiday themes.

    I keep telling myself I don't "need" all of this fabric but I don't see many I want to part with.

    When I get tired of looking at my scraps or just want to freshen up my collection I will part with (some) of them.

    When my probably never use again scrap tub gets to overlfowing I take it to the community quilting class and let the members take what they want. I have a will use again scrap tub and it stays full.
