    How many of you actually look there?

    I have posted a request for fabric today, and I think maybe that is one of the least used parts of the website. Am I wrong?

    I do think there should be a way for the person who wrote it to delete it after a time, but do you look at it at all?

    Let me know here!

    I look at it all the time. I'm always in the market for a great deal on things, especially fabric and supplies!!

    I thought the classified just popped up on the recent topics board. I'm not sure I've ever gone to look at the listings of only classified things. I'll have to check them out.

    I don't check the Classified area. Mainly because the budget is very tight here and I don't want to tempt myself.

    I try to read everytime there is a new post. I've been pretty busy the last few months and haven't been on regularly like I used to. But when I am on, I catch up on everything. I'll eventually get to it sooner or later! lol

    i never noticed the "recent topics" item on the menu!!!! :lol:

    pretty nifty. looks useful if you only want to look at the newest posts regardless of where they're posted. BUT it pays to go to each of the sections individually also. otherwise, you might miss out on posts that are the most recent in a particular section, but "old" enough to get pushed pretty far down the list of "recent topics".

    i check all the sections individually at least a few times a day. i still manage to miss things, but i try to keep up as best i can.

    I haved checked several times, and I alway look at the date that it's posted. I figure if it's been posted in Aug, Sept or Oct, then it's surley gone or no longer offered. I'm afaird to ask if it's still available if months have passed.

    i wouldn't be afraid. if it's still up there after a long time, and not yet sold, you could get it for an even better bargain. :wink:

    Don't be afraid to ask if something is still available. You just might have a happy surprise. :mrgreen:

    I look at the Classifieds every few days, and I did swap some fabric on there, so it has been very useful to me.

    I check the classifieds every once in awhile. I have also purchased some things at very good prices. So it is useful.

    skjquiltnut, If you go to the top of this page, you'll see where it says Quilting Forum->Main. Just click on the words Quilting Forum, it will bring up a menu of all the different categories, like recipes and all kinds of things. There's lots to look at.
