    Downsizing my stash/foam core boards left over

    Well, I took a real good look at my stash and realized I didn't care for some of the fabrics anymore, and didn't have the room to keep hanging onto them. There was so much it was overwhelming and I know I would never use it all in this lifetime. I donated a bunch to local groups who are working on making quilts for charities, so I feel great about that.

    Now my problem is lots of leftover foam boards and clips that I was using for storage of all the fabric. I haven't been on this board long enough to advertise them for sale here, so I was wondering if anyone could direct me to for sale sites that are geared to quilters and sewists.

    Thanks so much, Debbie

    I use them all the time. They have helped me organize my stash and life. If you just want to get rid of them, I will pay for shipping....and you can also post the, here on the board....but you would have to do it under the For Sale or Trade section.
    Good luck!

    It says I would have to be at least a Senior Member and I'm not.

    Like she said. You just may find a lot more fabric that you really do like. Otherwise, do you have a design wall? I taped some boards together, covered them with flannel and hung them on my wall. Now I can pin through the blocks when the size gets bigger and bigger, such as when you have the middle sewn and are working on the borders. By the way, I kept bending too many straight pins, so now I use my old sewing machine needles as pins. They go through the foam core board really well.

    Already have a design wall. Trying not to return to my huge stash days both for monetary reasons and I'm finding I would rather purchase fabric for a project and start working on it rather than put the fabric on the shelf and look at it for years without a plan ....

    I'm always sewing and quilting but I can't stop buying more. Hoarder and I don't want a 12 step program. My daughter is now starting so I think she will take anything I have.
