    I don't see much fabric on ours either. Since I don't see it until the evening, most things are usually taken.

    Glad for you though.

    You can always post a 'wanted'. I make charity quilts and post about once a year or so about what I do and how I'd use any donations. I've received a lot of donations from people in the first few years. The last 2 years I haven't had any responses. I think it depends on the economy and luck.

    I went through my scraps and have fairly good size of scraps and some bigger pieces that I don't want. I just posted them on our local Freecycle.org and had several emails with in minutes!

    http://www.freecycle.org/ To find your local group

    It's a regional email list of people who have things they don't want and people who want things. Check and see if you have a local group...If you don't, you can always start one.

    Right now, my freecycle is full of wants and not many offers. You can really tell the economy is bad.
