Don't throw it in the garbage

Good Morning!
One message said she had a garbage bag full of samples she was going to throw away. Please don't!

You can:

 give the samples to a school, church, camp,  or girl/boy scouts group for art projects

Put it on craig's list for free, someone would love to use them for a project or quilt

put the pieces in  smaller bags and give to good will

If it's a natural fiber, compost it

ask an animal shelter if they could use them for bedding

see if a local quilter or quilt guild can use them

See if a church group is making donation quilts and if they can use them.


There are other possible uses that others may have.

You may give the samples to a new weaver they will really appreciate them especially if you can give an explanation

This true! I've been gifted a few samples and also have several from Robin & Russ publications... Wonderful to have and touch! :))
