As quilters, we all have our stash of fabrics, tools, U.F.O'., finished quilts and who knows what else. Including your sewing machines, sergers. Etc.
Have you considered what will happen to all of your treasures when you go 'toes up'? NOT that we want to think about that, but it happens. Preferably in the quilt room.
A group of quilting friends and I made a “Will” years ago, specifying just who got what when we were no longer quilting on earth or of sound mind. (not that a sound mind really figures in this equation) I don't know about you, but my family would have NO clue at that time what to do with all of it. I could just see it all going to Salvation Army or to the curb at trash day. It would be an overwhelming job for anyone even if they knew what they were doing and the value.
Certain fabric of mine when to certain people, machine, etc. Actually, the local friends were to 'come and get it', first come, first serve on certain things.. The sewing machines and tools, gadgets were to go to certain people or organizations as well.
You might give this a thought, look around and see what you have. You'll be surprised if you wonder as a non-quilter might just What to do, even a quilting person would be overwhelmed without the help of our 'last wishes'....
Do you have ideas on this?? Leave a comment! :)
