Have learned so much from you.
I have stockpiled fabrics for years, but know I’m not going to sew anymore with my T-shirt jean wardrobe. Who could use yards of widely assorted fabrics?
Hey Big Sue!
Seams like it’s time for a trip to Indy Upcycle — those folks rescue art and craft materials and sell them at pay-as-you-wish pricing. The shop’s located in Broad Ripple next to Good Earth.
Sew, wanna know about something even more cool? Make Change Indy will reward you for donating your stockpiled fabric and a number of other activities that are good for the environment! Check out their web site to learn how to start earning change for making changes in your daily life. You can earn $2.50 to $20 just for doing something green!
FYI: If Indy Upcycle is not convenient for you, there are quilters guilds all over the state: Quilters Guild of Indianapolis, Appleseed Quilters Guild (Fort Wayne) and Raintree Quilters Guild (Evansville) — to name a few — that may accept donations of fabric. Many of these guilds do service projects and charity quilts.
You may also post your goods on Freecycle to find a good home for them.
Happy to know you’ve learned so much — here’s hoping I’ve kept you in stitches occasionally too. ;)
