    For those interested on the OWN channel they ate spotlighting a quilting hoarder. Scary.... But I am not that bad, yet!

    I don't get the OWN station. Would have liked to see this one. I have seen the Hoarders show on Discovery, it is disturbing. Can any of you who watched tell me was the hoarding as bad as they show on that hoarders show? With no ryhme or reason and so much stuff she never actually produces a quilt?

    Thrown away? It isn't being donated somewhere?

    Most things that she is getting rid of will be donated.

    No, it isn't close to Hoarders; the house is cluttered but not unclean, and she seems to have a system going for the most part (as much as any one of us could with that much fabric).

    I think if her daughter would grow up and go back to her own home and family, and just have Grandma visit the kids there it wouldn't be that much of an issue. But no.

    No No No there was NO room for anyone else in the living room...I don't think the daughter was a whinner - the woman has 14 grandkids who can't/don't come over to spend time.

    I'm glad that other quilty ladies came in to help and that the 'out the door' pile was going to other chapters of QOV instead of a resale shop.

    I am happy to see it cleared out and organized and shared the excess with other chapters of the Quilts for Valor!

    I just love the idea of the garage made into a quilt area! So many shelves and drawers! And just can't wait to see the rooms in the house and the finished sewing area! How marvelous! She has given so much of herself for others! This is great.

    I don't understand how anyone can let their house get that bad. I'd like to see her house 6 months fron now.
