Reader's Exchange: Like to sew? She has your fabric

Calling all crafters! Elaine of Temple Terrace has several boxes of fabric to donate. She says a few are scraps, which would be good for doll clothes or craft projects, but others are yards and yards of rather nice fabric that Elaine never got to use the fabric when sewing for her little girl, who is now so grown she's wearing business suits! She suggests that these would be good pieces for a beginners' sewing class. Elaine is willing to deliver in the Temple Terrace area and can be reached at (813) 985-7580.

Robert of Dunedin has a few items that he would like to offer to someone who could really use them. He has an electric potter's wheel, which is working but needs to be cleaned up, as it has been in storage for a while, as well as miscellaneous glaze chemicals, a chemical balance and several handmade molds. He also has a home gym, which is 20 years old but in working condition, that he would like to give away. If you are interested, please leave Robert a message at (727) 771-2706.

Audrey of St. Petersburg is an "84-year-old granny" who has lots of 8mm movies of her children and grandchildren through the years. Audrey would like to watch the movies, but she doesn't have a way to play them. She is hoping that someone out there will have an 8mm projector they aren't using and would be willing to part with. Audrey says she can make arrangements to have it picked up. If you can help Audrey, please call her at (727) 345-4933.

Marilyn of Gulfport has a large supply of plastic canvas grids, patterns, projects and yarn and would be happy to donate them to an organization or an individual. The only stipulation is that everything must go, as she is closing out an estate. Please call Marilyn at (727) 321-4035.
