    Now I know the reason for being a Fabricholic!!!!!

    Chemical Warning

    A recent study indicated that fabric gives off certain Pheromones that actually
    hypnotize women and cause them to purchase unreasonable amounts. When
    stored in large quantities in enclosed spaces, the Pheromones (in the fabric) causes memory loss and induces the nesting syndrome (similar to the one squirrels have before the onset of winter i.e. storing food). Therefore perpetuating their species and not having a population loss due to their kind being cut into pieces and mixed with others.

    Sound tests have also revealed that these fabrics emit a very high pitched sound, heard only by a select few, a breed of women know as quilters. When played backwards on an LP, the sounds are heard as chants, buy me, cut me and sew me. In order to overcome the so called feeding frenzy effect that these fabrics cause, one must wear a face mask when entering a storage facility and use ear plugs to avoid being pulled into their grip. One must laugh, however, at the sight of customers in a quilt fabric store, with WWII army gas masks and headphones!

    Studies have also indicated that aliens have inhabited the earth, helping to spread the effects that these fabrics have on the human population. They are called QUILT FABRIC STORE CLERKS. It's also been experienced that these same Pheromones cause a pathological need to hide these fabric purchases when taken home (or at least blend them into the existing stash), and when asked by significant other if the fabric is new, the reply is I've had it for awhile.


    Has anyone else been affected like I have (LOL)!!!!

    I knew it!!! I have told my LQS that my car is in cahoots with the fabric - I cannot drive by the quilt store without stopping - its not me - its my car - it automatically pulls over and parks when there is fabric nearby. (Thats my story and I am sticking with it ).

    Too funny! Somehow, those pheromones are also very technologically advanced, as they travel thru the internet like a virus, and force me to give Paypal a lot of business!

    Me too! Now I have fabric in one spare bedroom and my scrapbook stuff in another, and there is no man in the house to say a thing about it!
