I (recently, in the grand scheme of things) realized that hanging on to fabric that I will never use is just using up space and... it needs to be released to someone who will love it may-be more than I do, and who will actually put it to good use, which is the whole point of fabric. It's not meant to lie around in drawers and cupboards!

Rachelle

I have difficulty letting go; not just of fabric, also yarn. I'm starting slow, I'm getting rid of books first, then I'll go through the fabric again; especially the polarfleece, I prefer natural fabrics and can't see me using most of it now.

Lucinda

I used to hold onto every little piece, but last year we moved, and I purged. I feel so much better, lighter, without all that dragging on me. I still have a lot of fabric and yarn, but for the most part, it's things I love and can envision using.

Rebecca

Waaait I love that! You could give it to me!

Carolyn

It depends. Some things can go in the donate pile no problem and then others I've developed sentimental attachments to and so don't want to let it go!

Tina Sutherland

I had a fire, and what wasn't burnt was damaged by either the smoke or the water they used to put out the fire. Nobody was hurt but everything we owned was ruined. Including fabric. It broke my heart to toss lovely fabrics ( and books and quilts and other keepsakes), but it changed the way I felt about 'stuff'. I gathered a lot less after that fire and chose much more carefully what I wanted to include in my life. Several years later it wasn't hard to pare down and move into our RV. I still find beautiful fabrics, but I can enjoy them for that moment and leave them for somebody else to discover.
They can store it, clean around it, and have the guilt if they don't create something with it. I'm OK with that. ;-)

No. Give it to me! I see dress C of Butterick 5450.

I haven't yet got rid of much fabric, but have found myself more and more willing to cut into fabric that I previously thought was too good to use. I live in a tiny flat and just cannot store too much so I have to sew more before I can buy more. I still have too much in my stash, but about 70% (or more) is matched up with a suitable pattern, so I don't feel too guilty.

Denise

Perhaps next time I should give away the fabric online.

Tina, thanks for sharing your experience. His Bertness has said that one doesn't have to enjoy everything beautiful. (He has strong hoarder tendencies. He owns ratty shirts that are unwearable that he won't toss.)

Denise

Ooops. The perils of posting when I first awaken. I meant own, not enjoy.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
