My daughter said her friends mother, a long arm quilter, and long time quilter was deshashing, since I was a quilter, would I like to have her fabric. Sure, that would be very nice. What arrived was a surprise: corduroy, pre-quilted polyester panels, thin poly-cotton, 100% polyester, not one piece of cottoning. And even if I was still making garments, nothing was usable even for doll clothes. Now, I don't and didn't want to seem ungrateful, and they were delivered by way of my daughter. So I said, tell her thank-you and I promptly handed them over to my husband who was salivating at the yardage saying, "Is there anything I can use in my tractor shop?" Nothing went to waste, but it is odd what other people think we quilters can use....

Maybe "renting" out the prettiest pieces for a month or so would also do the trick!
Where is this fantastic place located. I hope somewhere near Albany NY.

Exactly! I have this 'fabric illness' even with patterns and ugly fabric...I need to 'save' it, use it, give it value of some sort...I also have a soft spot for abandoned/unwanted animals....definitely incurable.
