Bequest Craft Supplies In Your Will


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 205 Posts

Has anyone ever thought about what will happen to all of our craft things when we die? It's kind of a morbid thing to think about, I know, but has anyone ever thought about it? I did, and actually put it into my will what I want done with it.

Like most of us, I have tons of craft things. In my case it's bins and bins full of yarns of all kinds, plus I'd say I have at least 4-500 pattern books (that's not including all the ones I have on flash drives that I've downloaded. That must be at least another 5-600!). Plus all the doodads that go with it, crochet hooks, knitting needles, stitch counters, stitch markers, and rulers. I'm sure everyone knows what-all else!

Anyway, I put it into my will for all my craft supplies to go to the local "old folks home". I'm sure the ladies (and some of the men too) would love to have it. They could craft to their hearts content!

After my mother died, she also left lots of craft materials from her craft classes. My sister & I donated them all to the local Girl Scouts, who were delighted to get them & use them in their summer camps!

It's not a morbid thought, it's natural and very proactive!! I too have my stuff in my will, as well as my Snail Collection and Teddies. Everything else can be donated to the local animal shelter thrift shop.

I think it's nice, selfless and forward thinking. Kudo's to Yudo's!

An excellent idea! This would also apply to all my reference books and to all my genealogy research. I have already written a "genealogy will" designating that it should all be kept together and what to do with it if the family does not desire to keep it. There are many places out there that would be more than willing to take craft and sewing supplies!

If you have a large family (5 children & 8 grandchildren)make sure to decide who will get the supplies. I have a daughter who crafts occasionally and can afford it. However I have an ex-daughter-in-law who is a great crafter and has very little money to buy anything, so I put her in my will 10 years ago to receive all crafting except rock tumbler and supplies that go to my geologist grandson.
