I have many Quiltmaker and QuiltersNewsletter magazines going back to the 1990"s.   Do you know anyone or organization that would be interested in having them?  Will donate them, but will need help with shipping costs.  They are in very good condition and i just cant see throwing them away.

Thank you, Rosalie7@ptd.net

Rosalie, do you have a local quilter's guild that might like to have them?  Or another suggestion might be to post them on your local Craiglist under the arts and crafts section?

HI, Rosalie, welcome. I keep ALL my magazines. Go back over them time and again for ideas.

One place you might consider is the Library, if they have a used bookstore. Or, the local Thrift Store.  The ones that are donated, in either place, here go like hot cakes. And, donating to either place brings back money to the community.  If you have a Senior Citizen Center, take them there. Lot's of seniors still quilt, like some of us here. Put a note in your local newspaper, too. Or sell them at a yard sale you have, or a neighbor has. They sell very well there.

Rosalie I would love to have them. I would be more than happy to pay shipping costs. I collect quilt magazines. That is if you haven't found a charitable organization. Private message me and we will discuss the details.

Hi Rosalie;

How about donating them to your local library?  You can save on postage that way.
