    i donated a lot of my fabric i had collected to my local senior center. i figured they might be able to use it.

      I think there is a place here on the Forum where you can swap fabric. Not sure where though.

        If you want to trade fabric, check out the Groups tab. There's one called I Don't Want It. You can post there if you want.
        If you want a way to use up some of your stash, there are several groups that quilt for charities.
        I know our local Project Linus happily accepts donations of fabric to share with people who are making quilts to donate to the group.
        Kind of a nice problem to have,, better too much instead of too little

              I mostly donate to our local humane society thrift shop. There is a hospital thrift shop too. But my heart is with the animals.

                    Blondie, the founder of the Group Circles of Comfort here on M* can always use scraps as she turns them into circles for the COC quilts or sashing, block backgrounds, etc. Bigger pieces can be used for the backing. Please consider sending them to her.

                      There are many of us on here that donate quilts to charity that you could donate the fabric to. I donate quilts to the senior centers and would be happy to use any fabric that you have. I would pay for shipping as well. I know there are other groups as well such as the http://forum.missouriquiltco.com/gro...rt-quilts.html and the http://forum.missouriquiltco.com/gro...ilt-group.html. You could also try and sell them in lots on ebay or even on FB.
                      Thank you,

                          If you are just wanting to purge, I would also suggest sending them to Blondie. She just posted a few days ago about needing supplies and blocks.

                              We have a lot of local ladies who use their scrapes to make quilts for a children's hospital.
