    Nothing except fabric. I hate clutter. I like buying things for other people who have collections though.

    I really don't have a collection of any one subject. I acquire things that appeal to me. Although I do have a lot of odd coffee cups with funny sayings on them.

    It seems that I collect quilt patterns and quilt books. That needs to cease so I can make more room for fabric. :wink:

    my days of collecting are over. I enjoy my aprons, old linen, old embroidery, handkerchiefs, hummels, snowbunnies, small old sewing things. I don't seek out these treasures but..if I come across something I get it. I am working on a handkerchief quilt too.
