Oh my…I have a fun story for you today.
I was at the compute one day and I was writing blog posts. An email popped in from Debbie, a blog reader friend of mine. It said she was helping a friend who had to move and get rid of her stash. She was willing to donate it. Did I know anyone Florida that could use it.
I told her about Ray and she reads the blog regularly and knew about Ray so she thought that giving the fabric to Ray might be a good fit. So I gave her Ray’s contact info. After connecting they found out that Ray was actually quite away from them but Ray was happy to drive and get it. So plans were made to meet.
A week or two later I was at the kitchen island cutting out a quilt and the phone rang. It was Debbie again. She was at her friends house. They were sorting fabric. They found cross stitch floss was I interested? YES!! I’m always up for floss. She said she would mail it to me if I was interested and then told me about plans to meet Ray.
A bit later Ray sent me this video….It’s the video of the stash!! Can you believe it?
Aren’t those cubbies the cutest way to store fabric??
Then I got a message from Ray showing pictures….see?
Debbie and her friend loaded everything into garbage bags so the guys could fit the most they could into Ray’s mini van.
Here it is all stuffed in!! Ray assured me there was enough room to see!! HA!!
Then I got a message from Ray that a stop to Home Depot was going to need to happen at some point as he needed a place to put all the fabric.
I was beginning to feel like the organizer of a drug deal or something…it was such a fun covet little adventure and I’m so glad that Debbie and Ray included me in it. It brought a smile to my face every time I got a message from them.
Here is the final picture from Ray….the shelving is up and the stash has a new home!! I’m tickled. What an amazing gift!
So many people say things like “What will happen to my stash if I die and how will my family ever deal with it?”.
Put me on your list….I won’t be there to stack and organize your stash, but I promise I will find a good charity in your area that will put the fabric to good use!
A million thank yous to my friend Debbie for thinking of the charity quilting we do here and telling her friend about it. I can’t wait to see all the good things Ray does with it.
What a happy story…
