I"m going to order some of the boxes online, but will also check the post office since I have to run out there tomorrow.
Was supposed to go today, but my van decided it needed to go BACK to the shop. UGH!

Hello, I make quilt kits for my ebay store at www.quiltcutters.com
I will start saving my scrap and odd and end pieces and send them when the box is full. I just cannot throw away scraps, glad to know they will be of good use.

I did a check on the USPS web site and 1 lb (which is a pretty good haul in fabric) is a little over $10.00. I think that I can swing that--won't break the bank.

Are you wanting just cotton or cotton blends? I have some knit jerseys that make fantastic robes/tops/nite gowns. A friends mother passed away over a year ago & I & a friend recievied a LOT of her material! I haven't used this type of material in a long time as both of us are using mostly cotton & or blends. I know dh would be really glad to see some of it go, so he could have part of his garage back. LOL

What part of USPS did you look at Vicki? I looked and it was $128 for 10 pounds. Not a good deal for smaller packages either. I think it was $38 for under 1/2 a pound. But that was a Global Express Guaranteed rate. I didn't find any other international rate charts there.

The USPS has flat rate envelopes and boxes for international shipping. They're free and the boxes are pretty large. To Spain, a box would be $37.00; an envelope $11.00. Less expensive if you do it online.

Some shops can fit up to eight yards in an envelope and 25 yards in a box.
