Quilters can be very frugal. We love fabric! We sew for hours and hours to create beautiful quilts, pillows, baby blankets, and more. And we save the pieces that are left after the project is complete. In random clumps and sizes squished together to use later. . .
In bags, boxes, drawers, closets, car trunks, . . . well, it’s everywhere!
And we feel guilty as the scrap fabric stash grows. ‘Some day, I’m going to make a scrappy quilt with all this,” you say. But, where to begin. The task seems daunting.
Perhaps you need a plan. Perhaps you need ScrapTherapy!

The ScrapTherapy program is a two-part process available at your local independent quilt shop. It is a proven system to organize and use fabric scraps.
Typically, start with the Cutting Workshop to get started and to get organized. Scraps are cut into squares in three sensible sizes, then stored in special see-though storage bins for easy access. So, when it’s time to sew, you are ready to roll up your sleeves and get started!
Quilted projects use the newly-cut and organized fabric pieces in a variety of fresh patterns and projects. Watch your scrap stack shrink while converting scrap fabrics into usable quilts, table runners, bags and more!
Shake out the dust and replace your rotary cutter blade! Take the first step to organization with the Cutting Workshop. Brush up on fast and efficient fabric cutting techniques. Get your heap of expensive scraps under control.
Save space, time, and money! You’ll be surprised at how many quilted projects are lurking in your stash!
