regular thread for the sewing machine - any and all colors accepted.

blankets of any size and shape, can have a hole or 2 and still be useful for us

old sheets (all sizes) we have found very useful to use on the inside of quilts can be thin but maybe not have actual holes

material - again any excess from sewers, maybe not super small pieces from ACTUAL quilters as these are time-consuming for me to sew together
