I hadn't thought about donating them, maybe I'll donate the ones I find hard to sort, hehe.

I don't have an IRL venue, I wish! What a dream that would be.

It really depends on what it is. I usually wouldn't buy scraps unless it's cotton or leather.

I'm selling vintage clothes on Etsy! Check out my store at www.bleugreen.etsy.com

I have been talking to an elementary teacher of special needs kids (is that what they call it now ?) and she said small scraps or odds and ends are great for craft projects because tactile exploring is great for students who maybe struggle in other areas.  Just another possible donation place.

I LOVE scraps. I take my friend's all the time :]! You could also consider making little scrap packs with a variety of things. Those are always fun :]

rather than selling them, you could stamp them with your crafty logo and use 'em for business cards of sorts.  depending, of course, on fray levels.

What a great idea! Thanks to everyone for the great ideas/suggestions! Now I just have to actually sit down and sort them. I'll have to take a picture and show just how much by way of scraps I have, later this morning. People are still giving them to me. I'm thinking the pieces that are too small to sell I'm going to use to stuff things with, I also think I might cut some of them into 2x2 squares (and larger if possible).

I know for a while there were tons of Ebay sales for packages of certain sized squares. I haven't looked lately.

There is a particular type of quilt - I think it's called 1,000 squares or something like that. The idea is to make it with 1,000(whatever the number is) different pieces of fabric. I have little doubt you could find someone who would like your stash.

Also you might want to see if a local church makes quilts for the sick or homeless - bet they'd love an infusion of fabric!

I could look there, too. The more I think about it, the more I think I'll sell the Silks and blends and give the cottons away. There are so many places that could use them, which makes me feel kind of bad for selling them, hehe.
