    We go to AR every winter for 3 mos and my husband won't let me bring my sewing machine he says I need a break from my quilting and embroidery. I go crazy wanting to quilt so I found this little quilt shop where they do the quilting for people and made friends with the owners mother and daugther
    they let me stay as long as I want and watch them quilt and look at every blot of matertial and get so many Ideals that when I get home I am just dieing to get started He said he is about to give up and buy me a machine to leave here. So yes it is addictive and I love it. And have no intention to going to rehab.

    Join the CROWD!! My DM got me "hooked" on quilting because she said I needed something to do since I'm on disability. Needless to say the rest is HISTORY!! My housework, cooking skills, and gardening(have a landscaper now) have all taken a backseat to my sewing,lol!! I'm NOT complaining and so far my DH isn't either(well not too much anyway)!!!!

    LOL. when I was younger I hated anything to do with a needle, thread or sewing machine..Even failed home ec because of my hmmm "sewing" abilities.. Now, every chance I get I go and check out the fabrics in stores and I will pick up something..even if it is just thread..I am just starting to learn quilting but so far I am loving every minute of it

    When you first start it is more of a challenge until you have all the necessary supplies and fabrics to choose from for any givin project. Lord forbid, you have to go out and buy something when you settle on a project. It doesn't end any time soon.

    I think of it as having my creativity encouraged by having a stash.

    If nothing else, it is way cheaper than psychotherapy. Plus the end results are awesome.
