    Hello, and welcome from Idaho!
    You will find about half of people wash and about half people don't wash.

    If I am buying from yard sales or thrift shops it goes straight into the wash.

    I think it's a personal preference, I don't but I used to.

    I don't wash my fabric before cutting because I prefer the stiffness of the sizing in the fabric. It's definitely a preference.

    Definately a matter of preference. I always wash all fabrics.

    Hello and welcome from TN, I use a lot of scraps from others, so I don't wash

    I don't wash unless I suspect it will bleed, like a red or black fabric.
