Barbara, I don't know if your children are sentimental saps like I am, but if so, you might want to check with them to see if they'd like a few of your items--either because a pattern was something you used to make them clothing or because they remember watching you participate in your hobby.

Then, after they've had a chance you might consider selling some of your items on eBay and market them as "vintage". You'd be surprised what kinds of things people will buy. If you've not sold on eBay before, be forewarned that eBay and Paypal take their fair share (plus a bit more). By the time you list, sell and then make a dozen trips to the post office, it may not be worth your time. In my case, I figured a little something was better than a lot of nothing ... and I now have $75 in my Paypal account earmarked for my craft shopping.
