    I am a member of a Freecycle group here in the area. Yesterday a lady put quilt magazines on to give away. I was the first to reply so she gave them to me. I figured 10 - 12 mags. NOOOOO I went and met her today and she gave me 100 quilt magazines. I am in heaven!!!!!!

    I really do Terri. I have given a few things away and I have gotten a few. Most reciently we gave away the scrap drywall from the sewing room project. My husband bet no one would take it. LOL

    I LOVE Freecycle! Our group here is ReUseIt, but it works the same! :thumbup:

    Got office chairs on wheels for my senior citizen ladies who quilt at church! Makes a big difference to be on a chair that can be adjusted! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    and where do you live? I have tons. not ready to part with them yet but i do get into our freecycle site, so that's a good idea. i hate to see quilt mags go to waste. good for you getting so many. pay it forward later.
