Default Quilt magazines

What do tou do with your old quilt magazines? I have so many and need to get rid of some to make way for the new ones. Thinking of offering them free to a good home on Craig's List.

Mine are going to the recycle place. We don't have a craiglist and when I offer anything on freecycle, people don't show up when they say they will. I downloaded several magazine apps to my tablet and am only buying them electronically now. Any printable patterns are available at the magazine's websites so far. I love it. I haven't bought a paper magazine in weeks and our house isn't as cluttered with them like it usually is.

I really, really, really need to go through mine! Again.

A great place to get "rid" of quilt and craft magazines is by giving them to our local quilt show.

Of course, the trick is to walk on by the magazine stacks at the show ......

..... or, you guessed it, I end up with "new" ones!

I had a large stack fall in my sewing room today that took me forever to pick up. Going into recycle Friday for sure.

Local quilt guild or Senior Center. The ladies at my mom's Sr. Center love it when I bring my old ones in

I hang onto mine because I like to go back through them periodically. But if/when I get tired of them, my guild takes them and puts them into the library for anybody to check out and read. Eventually they get sold off in our annual library sale, I think they sell for a quarter apiece or 5 for $1. Sometimes I wonder how many times the same magazines have been bought, read, donated and sold again!

You could tear out the quilts and instructions you would make and put them in a plastic sleeve and keep in a three ring binder. And then just throw out the magazines. That's just what I do.
