I cried because my fabric took up too much room.<br>
Then I met a mama who had no fabric. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
You can donate some of your stash, including notion, patterns, etc. to mamas and kids in need through the holiday helper thread.<br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=550285" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=550285</a><br><br>
or, to go directly to the list of families in need, in case you don't have enough posts to get into TAO, go here:<br><a href="http://www.spatulagirl.com/holidayhelper/" target="_blank">http://www.spatulagirl.com/holidayhelper/</a> and click on "go help."<br><br>
You can do a search for "fabric" or "sewing" to see those families could benefit from some of your stash.<br><br>
When I buy fabric, I always buy extra "in case of emergency", and now here's the emergency. I sent off a box of flannel and terry to a mama who can make diapers, and another box of corduroy and fleece is waiting to be mailed today. I know I won't miss it, indeed I feel freer already with the extra space.<br>
And just think, if you give some away, that will make more room for you to be able to get more!

Cool! Every little bit helps.<br><br>
And you can read through the families needs to see if you have other things to get rid of that they might need.

I take a box to my church every six months. They make quilts for 3rd world countries and linus project. And I donate scraps to an cat shelter to make mice to fundraise for the shelter.

Hey ladies, I was thinking about the HH thread & extra fabric, but I had a slightly different idea... if there are some mamas here who can sew for HH mamas, but don't have any fabric, perhaps we could send it off to those moms.<br><br>
That way un-crafty HH moms in need could get homemade stuff & moms who don't have $$ for supplies could still help.<br><br>
Any takers?
