Default FreeCycle - Good Source for Machine Knit Stuff

Hi everyone,

If you're not connected up with your local freecycle group, you SHOULD
be! I realized after going through and sorting emails over the past 6
or 8 months, that I'd had 5 freebies from folks in the Reno/Sparks
area that were machine knit related. One was for a small box of
machine knit pattern books, 3 offers were for coned yarns and one was
for some odd and end parts to an ISM (shipped those off to a dear
friend who needed them). I put things up myself and have had all of
them go. I've got a bunch more things that need to go soon.

Take a look at: http://www.freecycle.org/

Marge, I have some ISM parts I'd like to rehome. Perhaps your friend
could use them? Or -- you said "shipped" -- this isn't a local person?

Hi Joanne,

Unfortunately, she doesn't have a freecycle near enough to her to
participate. She's over in the eastern part of NV. Put them up on
the Reno Freecycle and I'm sure someone who is into machine knitting
will grab 'em up.

My local freecycle was good until the owner/moderator got very snobby,
and have heard that other owner/moderators from other freecycle groups
were the same. I unsubbed from the ones I was in, and now just donate
my stuff to the church thrift shops and they can reap what they may
get from the sales. No matter what it is. Some of my posts were not
going through, or they were edited to where she liked them, although
she has that right, but have heard that others are unsubbing from that
one freecycle group. Good luck to all that are able to get into one
that the owner/moderator is fair about all posts.
