    Did she have sewing machines (as in plural????) When I get to talking about a favorite sewing machine to friends or family my hubby then says "Just ask her how many she has!!!" I don't want to be a hoarder. What I do want is to have some nice vintage machines that hum when I ask them to and sit prettily to the side when I want them to do that. That's not hoarding. I don't have that much stash either.
    OWN is not in our package on Dish Network, so we can't watch the show, but do watch Hoarders when it's on.

    Hush, just do not let your family hear about this show. LOL

    There are enough comments anyway (that I receive) and I am pretty good. Who wants or needs an intervention?

    Just knew there was a reason not to have cable t.v. in the household :thumbup:

    [quote=Nanamoms]Maybe the producers decided that couldn't actually help with that much clutter (uh, quilt stash).
    All they would have to do is post to this Board and the stash would be gone in a day.

    I watched it for about 15 minutes - saw it was way too much criticizing her housekeeping - it deffinitely need to be cleaned up- straightened up - but this guy was going in to throw it all out! It had to go, was his words; No one would come into my home and say it had to be thrown out - regardless of what kind of mess it was; it was a disaster for sure, but it looked like too much of a fake disaster; sort of like they needed to get their point across that things were never put away - and it was not stacks of things, but things here and there that had no rhyme or reason to it - yes, the lady needed to get it cleaned up so her new baby granddaughter could some to see her - her daughter refused to bring the baby over to "see grandpa and grandma under these conditions; rightfully so; but I still would not allow anyone to come in and throw it all out.

    She was gone from like 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. or somethign like that - no time in a day to put anything away - but if she'd just get some totes, and start on one side of the room, and go through everything piece by piece, she could clean it up.

    Even her husband was mad cause it was so cluttered; I just hated the guy who was there to clean it up! Anyone can throw things away - I shut it off... and quit recording it as well. He ws not coming up with any suggestions to preserve anything she had - just the fact "It Had To Go!"

    At least that is as much as I heard of it - did not like the show whatsoever.

    I watched it also and was very disappointed. I watch Horders from time to time, but when you are expecting a show about one thing, and you get another. Yes very disappointed. I actually like the old Discovery channel. I watched it a lot, but I don't watch OWN as much now.

    I recorded the whole series too so I wouldn't miss it. Sounds like it will be good!

    Really, I live in Tollhouse and work in Prather, I have quite a bit of fabric myself, but not many bolts, if you decide to sell some off pm me, I can always add to my stash :D

    My DH was nice enough to DVR it last night for me. The woman makes quilts for Quilts of Valour. She did have a ton of fabric. They did a wonderful job setting up a space for her and even brought in a few Soldiers from the Army to help with putting all the stuff in the final spots. The overflow was donated to another chapter of the organization.

    "Hoarders" had a show about a lady who had that much fabric. They turned her garage into a quilting room.
