    You can donate the unwanted fabric to a quilting club that makes quilts for charity. The fabric that is unsuitable for quilting can be donated to a home economics department. There may be a local society associated with a homeless shelter that has sewing facilities. If all else fails, try giving it away on Freecycle. Good luck with the purge.

    I use store-bought bias binding all the time and have always been pleased with the results. It saves time if you want to use a solid color for the neck and ties. One cannot get creative with the bias binding typically available at the fabric store, but it is efficient and saves time.

    I have been enjoying the French version of the show, Cousu Main. My inability to speak French did not seem to matter either. The format deviates a bit from the British version, but it is equally entertaining. I highly recommend it.
