Ten Years of Quilter's Newsletter

Last March my daughter helped me clean up my sewing room and we put 10 years worth of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine in a box. Then, I let it sit. It sits there still today, and I wonder what to do with it.

 I bought a few issues and fell in love with the magazine in the late nineties. Then, I got so into quilting I treated myself to a subscription. I don't have subscriptions to anything any more. I had a subscription for ten years and I kept every issue to use as a reference.
 Now, I am trying to get rid of stuff I don't use. But I hate to just put all of these in the recycle bin. So what do you, my readers think I should do with them? My library doesn't take magazines like this. Does anybody want them? Or maybe just some of them? I will give them away but I can't afford to pay postage on them to mail them.
I am hoping someone wants to give them a good home. If not, recycle it is. I need the room.

  1. I've hung on to magazines like those for years, but when I moved they had to go. It killed me so I understand how hard it is to get rid of them. Is there a quilter's guild in your area that might want them?

  2. Your local hospice might be able to use them Charlotte. Here they have a craft group that makes goods to sell for the hospice and they are always on the lookout for inspiration. I know how you feel about getting rid of them, I will have a similar problem when we move in the New Year hopefully :)

  3. I sold old woodworking magazines on eBay by the year , for about 50 cents each plus shipping, Instagram is another place where you might find a buyer willing to pay for shipping.

  4. I would love to have some of them! I live in Birmingham, AL. If you will check to see what amount the postage would be, I would be thrilled to send you the money to send me a few!

  5. My local library probably wouldn't take them, either, but the Friends of the Library, a nonprofit that hosts a small bookstore, takes them and sells them along with other used books to benefit the library. I've happily bought quilt magazines from them. Perhaps that an option for you?
