    My name is Dawn, and I am addicted to....fabric!

    I truly need a 12 step program these days. When I sew quilts, I have a specific color scheme and pattern in mind. When I sew little dresses, I am more free. Now every fabric I see looks like part of another dress.

    I always swore that I would never be a fabric hoarder, but this has done it for me. I need therapy! :0)

    Hello Dawn, welcome to our gathering, might I get you a piece of fabric to fondle while you sit there and tell us all about it? We have, satins, wools, cord and even some furniture cover material. The cottons are nice and soft as we prewash all our fabric for meetings. The fleece is nice and warm for arthritic hands as is the flannel. We are glad you
    can join us, do sit a spell now and tell us your story.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    You are asking the wrong group for help. I too am a fabric hoarder but I am proud of my stash.

    Yeah... we really are kind of a bunch of enablers. But it's soooooo fun! Besides, of all the things I could be addicted to, fabric is pretty harmless, right? I know I could be as rabid over something like exercise or eating righgt & that would really be fabulous but unless they'd reward me with fabric, that ain't happening! So, hello, Dawn. Here's a thread you might enjoy... PUT YOUR FABRIC DOWN SO YOU CAN READ IT! LOL!

    Hello my name is Luv, and Im a fabri-holic.....

    Hi, Dawn! Welcome to the group! Most of us bring several pieces of fabric with us, for Show-And-Tell. Oh! I see you're well prepared!
