Liz is Learning to Crazy Quilt

by Liz White
(Oklahoma City, OK)

I have been collecting fabric, beads, lace, ribbon etc. for some time and now find myself with items I know I won't use in my crazy quilt projects.

I'm interested in trading with others who are in the same situation. Has anyone found a way to trade with others and how did they go about it?

....thanks...Liz

Liz, have you considered joining any crazy quilt groups online? Yahoo groups has a number of groups where CQ'ers meet and hold fabric swaps etc. One that I recommend is Crazy Quilt International which is to be found here...

You could also package up any fabrics and embellishments that you have no need for and offer them for sale on ebay. Likewise you should be able to purchase someone else's stash that is surplus to requirements in a similar manner.

If you are happy for me to pass on your e-mail address, I am quite willing to do so if anyone e-mails me wishing to take you up on the offer of a swap. Just let me know.

If anyone has any other ideas for Liz, please do use the comments feature below to share your thoughts.

Regards,

Carol
