    Just so everybody knows I have gone back to WM several times hoping to run into the lady who has the extremely large stash but I haven't seen her yet. I am extremely curious as what she does with all of the fabric. I am dumbfounded by the whole thing.
    I also want to thank each and everyone of you that have posted on this thread. I have read every comment. You all are such interesting ppl. Thank You Carrie

    I agree; it looks like a portable area for cutting out patterns. I used one for years when sewing. I either used it on top of my dining table to protect the surface or on the carpet so I wouldn't cut the fibers and/or pin the pattern to the carpet.

    Hi,

    If you have clothes to get rid of please take them to nursing homes as those people really appreciate it. I took 6 bags of clothes, purses, shoes, shavers, hair dryers to them and the manager of the nursing home said wow, wish more people would donate to them.

    She also sent me a thank you note! I have some more things to take to them! Cleaning out the closet for spring cleaning!

    And I guess I will take the 4 bags of clothes to Salvation Army tomorrow- then I won't be "hoarderlike" in my formal living room. :)
