I don't know what to do with these. Please comment telling me what you think I should do. You can answer even if you aren't interested in any of them.
There seems to be very little interest in the stack of patterns combining piecing and applique, which is now 3 1/2" tall. So far I have a total of 6 comments on this post. The stack is tall enough that I can easily divide it into two prizes, which I will probably do before I do the "drawing" tomorrow.
This is my two-fold problem:
1. Since the first stack I offered drew so little interest, should I even bother offering the others as a prize? Will more people be interested in straight applique or straight piecing? Or should I just toss them into the recycle bin? What about the stack of professional patterns? Might they draw more interest or should I just take them to the thrift shop?
2. The postage is going to really add up if I give all of these away. Is it unreasonable to suggest that people consider sending me a little to cover postage? I would make it strictly optional, because I love the idea that these may go to quilters who have no money for patterns and thus no money for postage either. Winners could use PayPal to send their optional reimbursement.
I think I'm almost done, but I still have to go through the bottom drawer. Here is what is sitting on my ironing surface at the moment.
|Pieced patterns - 6" tall|
|Applique patterns - 4" tall|
|Commercial patterns I'd offer individually - almost 8" tall.|
Please let me know what you think I should do? Thanks everyone!
