Default Would you?

I have been doing well using up fabric during the pandemic.

Now - a relative of mine has offered me 3 boxes of fabric after cleaning out a family member's house. I have not seen it yet but am thinking a lot of it will be from the 80's and 90's. Should I take it, would you? I guess I could go thru it and share with my quilting group.

Absolutely. If its not to your taste - pass it along to the charity quilters.

Yes I would. Go through it, take what you want and then share with others or donate somewhere.

Wouldn't be a question for me, absolutely! I feel like there's sure to be *something* cool/usable in there, and yes, the rest to donation, or stuff for me to practice new skills on.

Yes - but with the proviso that I could pass on what I did not want to keep.

It could be upholstery fabric but you won’t know until you see it. As others have said, tell them you will pass on what you can’t use.

Take it, but don't promise to use it. Just say that you will look thru it and decide what's best for it. Whether it's your own stash, community quilts or the trash. Not all saved fabric is worthy fabric. Sometimes it falls apart, sometimes it's polyester, and it may just be ugly. Use what you want or pass it on.

Always! You never know what kind of treasures there will be. As others have said it can always be donated to a charity group of quilters if it is not to you taste. I have a number of fabrics in my stash that are dated to back in the 90's or even earlier. There may be hiding in all these fabrics that missing piece of fabric that you always wanted.

Hello from a little south of you (Winnebago). Yes, especially since you've been good using up your stash during the pandemic!
