    The rules are listed at the top of the page of the Classified Section. If you have any questions after reading them, any of the Mods can help you.

    To find out which Mod is online, go to the Home page, scroll down to the members online, and the Mods are in bold letters :D:D:D

    It looks like you qualify for selling, if you get to a regular status. If you post 20 times within two weeks, you will become a regular.
    Your posts will drop off, so you need to keep posting to maintain this status :D

    So if you post 20 times today, in about 24 hours your status will change to "regular." I think the status changes happen sometime after midnight :D:D:D

    I have a ton of quilting books...I am debating on selling them. Do people here really buy them?? If so for how much? Has anyone had problems with payments? Is it worth selling them since you have to add on shipping costs?

    LOL

    That isn't a quilt. It's fabric I had just washed and had them layed out to iron, along with some cut strips I was sewing at the time. She climbed up under all that fabric, and was unhappy that I pulled the sewn strips out from under her. She how she is defensively hold onto the strips?

    you really need to just WATCH the ads for a while and then make a list of your books, do a SEARCH on here to see if any have sold and for how much...

    you can get prices off of ebay, amazon, alibri, etc..but those prices vary greatly...always remember this...sell it for what YOU would buy it for! If you are not willing to pay more than half of the MSRP for a book, then probably others won't either. There are also rules on the pricing here, so you really need to Read them over and over again to understand them. and THEN you can always PM the moderators for clarification/answers if you still have questions!

    Yes, you can give stuff away without being a member for 90 days or without being a regular. Those conditions apply only if you are selling things or asking for freebies...not if you are buying or giving things away. Rules for the donation section are here. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-82858-1.htm

    Well I already sent the book, so too bad!
    I have more stuff, but I'm not about to wait 90 days, so I will just give them away somewhere else.

    Wow. Welcome to QB. Here's the section list so you can see the other forums you are missing besides Donations. http://www.quiltingboard.com/section_list.jsp

    And, as mentioned, there is nothing in the rules about having to be a member for 90 days before you can give things away, so feel free to reconsider...or not. ;)

    Sorry, I thought the rules/giveaway police was on my back fer a minute.
    I did not join to make money here. nor give stuff away, but when somone asked about a technique that I had a book about, I offered it to her. I'm like that. If I have it, and am not planning on using it, and you need it, it's yours.
