    My sister called me just a little bit ago and she is sending me all her fabric as she is giving up sewing and quilting. She is shipping 5 big boxes of fabric and when she comes this summer she is giving me my Mom's treadle machine. Most of her fabric comes from LQS.

    Sorry your sister is giving up sewing and quilting but it's a really lucky day for you. I'm sure you will be in quilt heaven when those boxes arrive.

    My sister is sooooo...great! She works with disabled children and she just got promoted to full time and she won't have time to do sewing anymore. She also is tired of sewing and the clutter.

    You lucky dog. It's nice that your sister is keeping it in the family. I would guess that it wouldn't be as hard to part with one's fabric knowing where it is going.

    My sister was working part time with disabled kids and she got an offer to go full time and decided she wouldn't have much time to herself to do her quilting. She also is burnt out on quilting and wants her time for herself to do other things.

    You may be storing it for her as she will know where it is. She may want some of it back later. LOL
