O.K. I know that I just finished a quick post but I was just reading A Dress A Day; and she mentioned that she sends her scrap pieces to a place in California... here is a piece of her post. They make .......... "Quilts for Valor for wounded soldiers, but they will also be providing quilts for community health groups Corona, foster children, and the elderly. If you want to send your scraps as well, they can use any cotton, silk, velvet, or denim scraps of any size. Most of their quilts will be twin to lap size. (Don't forget that you can pack a flat rate box or envelope with as much as possible ...) They asked me to let you know that you can send your scraps to Jane Ellen Smith, 3192 Via Mazatlan, Corona, CA 92882".... this was written by Erin. If you want to read the entire post, go here! http://www.dressaday.com/dressaday.html
Seems to me that if you aren't a quilter and have scraps that you don't use... please send them onto this group or find one in your area that will take them. Keeping them out of the landfill is a good idea too!
