De-Stashing

Every once in a while I decide to go through a bin of fabric... and I find things that i purchased - but have now decided not to use.  Do you do that?

So I thought I might try to sell a few things.  I have this FQ pack and coordinating Yard on sale:


It is in my Etsy Store : https://www.etsy.com/shop/AlyciaQuiltyGirl   (SOLD!! Thank you!!)

But here is my question for the day.... Do you ever sell your scraps?  I have collected quite a few, to the point that I think it is overwhelming.  I have a lot of them sorted by color. If I tried to take a stack of a specific color and sell that as a *lot*  would that make sense?  Would you buy scraps?  ( and not for a lot - the postage is the big thing I want covered)

I've never bought scraps, but on some of the e-mail lists someone will offer a box of scraps for postage and they'll get multiple takers.

I have heard of people selling their scraps before.

Yes, I think there is a market for scrap bundles. Especially if they are in a color group and within a set size range.

I have indeed bought scraps, all different colors, all mixed up and jammed in a large priority mail box. It was like Christmas! I loved picking through them and have used quite a bit and still have a lot left. They multiply, you know!

Sell your scraps?! Gasp! ;)

I know how they can get overwhelming. I have seen them for sale stating the weight. I'm currently sewing up some string quilts to blow through older scraps. I just can't part with them!

I would buy scraps by color!

Several of our guild members sell FQ packs or zip bags of scraps (with size/qty listed) in a Boutique at our annual Quilt Show. And YES! - they sell well!

I don't sell scraps but have donated quite a bit of yardage to the church quilt group for tops, backings, pillowcases, etc.
