    I would love anything anyone is going to throw out. Please don't throw them away share them instead. If postage is a problem I would be happy to send the postage.

    I have been collecting meduim to very small pieces. I almost have a $10.70 priority box filled probably take another month to cram it full. It is a mix of odds and ends and different fabrics if anyone want it and pays shipping. I wish I could afford to ship it myself but can't right now.

    Put me in coach! I make scrap quilts. I make mini quilts, also. I save anything that is at least 1 1/2" square not including selvedges. It's amazing what I can find uses for. Happy to pay postage. Let me know....

    Send me a pm and I will let you know when the box is full. If you send a pm now then I will remember it is for you.

    Sure! If you would want me to fill a smaller priority box full of scraps, pm me - and if you pay for postage I will do it for you. I have alot of polar fleece pieces that are perfect for applique - let me know what you want - cotton or polar fleece!

    Rhonda, send me your address and I will be glad to send you some scraps. I am trying to pare down the boxes and garbage sacks of scraps I have. Most of the scraps are very small - maybe 3 x 5" and up to about 8 x 10".

    cwessell47, and anyone else interested in scraps. PM your address to me and let me know about how much postage you want to pay and I will get busy filling envelopes! I am really trying to make some space by giving away, using up, my scraps.

    Ok, I am one who throws scraps away. Just how small of a scrap do people want? Any size, a certain width? Let me know. I can keep a box in the sewing room and collect them and send them on. I don't mind doing it, but I don't want to send pieces too small. :)
