    My hubby would not go in a fabric store, except to find me 'cuz it's "time to go". Then says I don't need the stuff, and why can't I use what I have. He just doesn't understand!!

    Yes, my husband is a terrible influence on me! I always spend more when he's with me, whether it's for fabric or shoes. Lucky on the one hand, but poorer on the other :)

    Mine would never even consider going shopping with me. He has absolutely no interest at all, and getting a compliment out of him on a project is a foreign concept to him. the upside is that I am not 'bugged' by him when I am sewing, unless the computer isn't working, or he has dropped the remote and it needs to be reprogramed, or he can't find something.....

    Yes....and I LOVE it when he'll go in with me!! Unfortunately, he caught on and stays in the car -- says it's cheaper that way! LOL

    I don't drive anymore, so mine takes me and waitsd in the car. But I always hear, " don't take too long, so I'm usually in and out of the store in an hour. I've leasrned to become a very fast shopper, but it would be nice to send him off and take my time just looking!

    If my DH is along, he usually will read a book in the car, so I don't feel rushed. Why don't they put fabric shops next door to hardware stores?

    lol I wish I had your problem. He did run into the LQS for me to pick up a walking foot, though. He was in and out as fast as humanly possible. I think if I dragged him shopping with me...he'd cower in a corner shaking. LOL

    No way!!!
    However, when we go to Amish Country he finds somewhere to go while I'm shopping. He has a lot of patience with me but no interest in fabric stores, although he loves what I make! So I can't complain He's a good sport about my obsession :D
