    Anyone up for a little YAK on RAK?
    I'll start.
    I've been ploughing through my bucket of strips - which is just a teeny tiny bit of what I have. Now on day three, I am getting sick of it. It has become an endurance ordeal. I WILL finish them off. I WILL if it kills me.
    Once they are done, who knows what will happen.

    Soooooo, who are the RAK scrap lovers? I've got a ton of them!

    And now, off to run a nice hot tub and soak for a while. My back is killing me from all the sewing. I haven't indulged in that luxury for ages and it is time! Calgon - take me away!

    Love the little desk guy! No, not organize. Utilize. And now give away. You'll all be on the list. Does anyone want homespun? Got some of that too. How about lace scraps? Always a ton of that. PM me your preferences as to color size and lace or no lace and if you can use something other than quilting cottons.

    LOL Krystyna,

    I am wayyyyyyyy ahead of you (kinda) on that, I already created
    a column on the database called "send scraps" that I have been
    using for myself when every I see someone mention that they like
    scraps.

    I will start adding that column to the RAK list. I already have 10
    people "marked" as wanting scraps, and I have been "slowly" building
    up some boxes with a few scraps tossed in each box.

    See........
    Now what is not easy to see is that there are FIVE (5) not
    just the four you can see.

    Yesterday (and last night until 1am) I was making more
    bibs.

    This is the last bib I made last night before FINALLY
    calling it quits and going to bed LOL.

    Yep I have you one the list already for wanting scraps.

    As for the bibs I will be selling them on my artfire studio.
    No I don't have any grandkids (YET), but I do hope to have
    them some day.

    The ONLY bibs I can not sell are the licensed designs (Disney?Pixar)
    as I DO NOT want to get my fat tush drug to court over something
    dumb like copy right infringement blah blah blah you know how that
    goes.

    ANY thing I make that has a licensed design on will have to be
    "gifted" to someone .

    My SIL works for a company in Denver who deals ONLY with
    wholesale "blanks" and I had her to pick up a couple dozen
    bibs for me, but I have not gotten them from her yet. The
    bibs I am using are some that I had already ordered some
    time ago.

    Uh oh. Look out! Louise and I are going to inundate you with embroidery freebie sites!

    Louise, I just finished watching an episode of Hoarders. Oh my goodness, this lady had a clean house, except for the extra empty bedrooms, garage and basement. Oh, and two storage units and a 9,000 sq ft storefront! Man, she had some husband. Anyway, my point being that I *think* I have a fabric hoarding problem. And it must go go go!

    Wanda, Patrice deleted the thread as she thought it belonged in a blog, so we must comply. At least we're here and that's a happy thing!

    So how does this work? I received a RAK awhile back and it blew my socks off. I just don't know how to get started or what to do. I am really interested. Thanks

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    I have done this in the past to someone who inspired me or sent me a pattern that I wanted. My question is, how do you get their address without asking them for it. It doesn't seem like a surprise if you ask them for their address.

    I'm a newby and haven't been sewing very long, so my stash is not much. however, I love scrappies, which is good 'cause that's about all I have. I feel blessed to have them.

    I so love your avatar. I think we've talked about that before. Blessings.
