    I am a new quilter and I feel totally obsessed. I take my sewing machine camping, I read this board for hours on end. I think about quilting all of the time. I search patterns and fabric and quilts on the internet. I want to go shopping just so I will have a "stash". Will this go away? Will it only get worse? Do I need help?

    Obsession or addiction? LOL! I haven't heard of a 12-step program yet. Good luck! Enjoy the ride so to speak.

    No, sorry it won't go away. It's a chronic disease that you will need to learn to manage.

    Nope. No cure and no research being done....except online and local fabric shops to find the best bargains!! The first step is admitting there is a "problem"....Go ahead...introduce yourself and admit it. For example, "My name is Laura, and I'm a quiltaholic..."
