    I'm pretty weak when I see fabric I like. I kick myself later for not getting it when I see it! So lately, I've just been getting what I like...and that's a lot!!
    Nope, I'm outa control!!!! But I'm building a great stash!

    I tell myself "No more material!"; yet when I go to WalMart for groceries, I head for the fabric section. Now mind you I have a very small sewing room for storing my stash yet I usually bring home at least one piece.

    Hi! Our Wal Mart discontinued the fabric section several years ago and lost many, many customers- soooo, the farbic department is coming back!! I get some fabric at JoAnn's, but I buy most of my fabric at a phenominal quilt shop about 30 miles from me. WORTH THE TRIP! The owner moves fabric FAST, she carries fine quality fabrics and has a 'no pressure policy'. She will go to the bargain section to help witth selections before going to regular priced goods. She also carries patterns, books, kits, etc. I live in a (2) bedroom apartment and it is overrun with fabric - but it is all organized ( thank goodness!). Chris Thanks for replying.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!


    Control???? Do we want Control?????
    Fabric calls my name. I find it extremely difficult to walk into a quilt shop without buying something!!!

    Hello from north central Maryland!

    And no. There are two kinds of quilters: one kind can't stop buying fabric, and the other can't stop lying about how much fabric they've bought.

    Cheers!
