That said, if any reader wants boxes of books on national parks, 19th century US history or vigilantes, shoot me a comment. You pay the postage and I'll get them to you.
There have been discussions on the QuiltArt list about what to do with our fiber art as we age. Really, nobody wants it all, nobody wants the collection. Some few museums might be willing to cherry-pick and take a few, but they need an endowment to process and preserve the artifacts. Family will be stuck with Mother's output. We hold out hope that they won't use our work as potholders or dog beds. I can move the stash to my new, large studio,and I'll have storage space for the quilts. But at some future date my son will have to deal with all this. If I can, I'd like to make it easier for him. The moral of the story is, I guess, that we don't need nearly as much stuff as we think we do. It would be a salutary lesson to move every five years or so, editing the collection out of necessity.
