    Last year I sorted through 20-50 year old scraps left over from my great aunt's dress and quilt making. They had been stored in an old shed in a box and were eaten up by insects, but I spent hours going through each scrap and salvaged what I could. Put it in a box with boric acid powder to kill bugs. Washed, dried, ironed and cut out any savable/usable piece. I was in heaven--thrilled to death to get it and tripping down memeory lane looking at the patterns. Have used it for applique and small quilted gifts for family. I hope that some day my stash will be as revered--someone, somewhere is bound to be happy to get it.

    That is a good attitude! Collecting fabric is so much more fun than collecting stamps. If I were to use some of my plate block stamps, I would not have room on the envelope for the address. Now my fabric is always usable, if the color is a bit dated, I can still use it and call it retro or in some cases vintage. lol

    So WHY does everybody expect me to use my fabric collection to actually SEW anything?!!
    I'm not a fabriholic; I'm a fabric collector!
