    Make it Stop....

    I'm a junkie and my crack is fabric! Yes, I just purchased MORE fabric. This time from www.fabric.com. I can't help myself! I LOVE a sale! And pretty fabric...the touch, the feel. VERY RARELY will I pay full price for anything. Wait! OMG! I am patient! Who knew?

    My name is Julie and I am an addict...however made a pledge for 2013 NOT to buy more fabric. Need to sew more and shop less. So now sewing for charities and friends at work. Still playing with fabric and wallet is full. Win win situation for me.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Ditto. I just purchased fabric from them also. Why pay $11/yd when you can get it for 6-something. I even purchased their 3 lbs. of fabric....I love scrappy quilts...however, when you buy this box it's like getting a mystery box, lottery ticket, surprise. I think that anticipation gives me a high. (Sigh) There are worse addictions, I tell myself!

    SmickChick, I love there 3 lbs mystery box too. It gives my stash fabrics I would not normally buy and I love the new challenge of using them. Yes, quilting is an addiction and I don't want a cure

    I love fabric ... the smell of it, the feel of it; it even talks to me. So am I an addict too?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    OMG - ok I admit - My screen name is Otis and I too am a fabric addict. My fabric drug of choice is Moda Pre-cuts - I cannot get enough of them and spend many hours searching for the best deals - I cannot stop myself - all I can say is I have slowed down a little on my impulses....Sigh...

    Boy, did you come to the wrong place for help! We are all enablers, as well as addicts ourselves! We will even tell you where the good sales are! I figure that I don't drink, I don't gamble, I don't smoke, so everybody has to have one vice. Mine is fabric hoarding. I love it. My name is Sandy and I am addicted and don't want to be cured!

    My name is Suzanne and I'm a fabric addict, too. I keep fabric in my car until my husband is working in the basement and then bring it in and hide it in a closet.
