20 years pattern collection

Because of health reasons my wife has had to quit stitching. For the past 20 years she has stitched for three groups that do quilts for children with life threatening illnesses.
We have a collection of patterns that range from juvenile to Space, motorcycles, riverboats and everything in between. We would like to make these patterns available to anyone who wants them, free, just come and pick them up. If stacked in a single pile it would be about 7 to 8 feet tall. We are located in New Haven, MO.

    Hello Larry -- I am sorry to hear your wife is unable to continue stitching for charity. I have been stitching for World of Charity Stitchers (WOCS) for several years. I found them thru the website. I would love to give these precious patterns a good home. I live in Metro St. Louis and according to my calculations it is about an hour drive to New Haven. If you give me these patterns I promise not to resell them on eBay or other site. I will share them with other members of the WOCS group so that we can make more quilts and totes and other gift items for sick children and adults.
    Please let me know if the patterns are still available and I will make arrangements to pick them up at your convenience.

      LUCKY ME!! The Cross Stitch God was smiling me. Way more stuff than I expected. Larry and Deb had stuff piled up. We loaded up my car. Not only did I get a ton of patterns -- quite a few kits -- a pile of magazines and several beautiful books. Then when I got home I opened up a large plastic container (23 x 13 x 16inches). It was filled with ten or twelve plastic containers that you keep partial skeins of floss wound around cardboard bobbins. Oh, yes baggies with at least 200 full skeins of floss. All of it was DMC. I might never have to go to Michaels again. It was almost as good as winning the Powerball!
