    I definitely fit into this category. But last year I bought a long arm quilting machine. I have one room that is nothing but my sewing. I have 2 machines in this room along with my ironing board. I love sewing and quilting.

    check into getting all of your equipment and fabric insured by your insurance companies they will not replace unless you have proof of things.

    Is this you? I know I fall in that category. Give me your thoughts. :lol: :oops: :roll:
    I got everything but the age, and I have a while to go on that as well!

    I'm younger, but the numbers are right except reversed. I probably have $3700 in supplies and $8700 in fabric.

    Oh, forgot the longarm. OK, more than $3700 in supplies.

    Well, I'm over on all the categories. I'm 69, and I have that much in ONE machine, and I have 3 others that I use, won't count the antique machines. And fabric and supplies goes way over too.

    I do believe my fabric has risen in value, at least some of it. I remember buying very pretty, can't resist, Hoffman Woodblocks prints quite some years ago. Now, I think if I put up a yard or so for sale, it would fetch at the very least $9.50 a yard.
    Anyway, I fit all the categories except the one about $8,000+ for tools. I think that may include a long arm or high tech sewing machine--which I don't have --Yet.!

    NO!

    *27 years old
    *Sew at the kitchen table.
    *Even with my Brother maching I MIGHT have 1500 dollars worth of tools and supplies.
    *If I have 150 dollars worth of purchased fabric I'm lucky! (lol its good quality just not much of it!)
    Hey! You sound like me :lol: Although my hubby just brought a special table from work home that I now have my Brother on (in the toy room!!)

    I meet the first 2, just don't have the funds to fit into the last 2. I just have the desire and the love for quilting.

    Nope
    nope
    nope
    nope.

    Getting closer on the age thing but about a decade younger.
    Using a small corner of the guest bedroom :evil:
    I don't have even close to that in tools/machines...but I DO love the gadgets, so someday probably will
    I really don't have that much fabric...got a start from an ebay big box win and had a couple of boxes sent by my grandmother..so not much of a stash...

    I'll get there though...I just LOVE it!

    same here, except older - 74
    also way over on fabric, probably also over on machines,notions etc., but not dramatically
    I have a quilt room, but fabric, machines have moved into bedroom, living room and two stairwells.
    Lucikly I live alone

    I'm not old enough - give me 5 years
    I have a small bedroom for my "studio" (sounds fancy, huh?)
    I have waaaayyyy less spent on notions, and equipment
    I have waaaayyyy less in fabric too.
    Looks like I've got to do some spending (I wish!) to catch up to the norm.

    No. I'm under 50, sew on the dining room table and have way less in tools & supplies. No idea how much invested in fabric. I'm afraid I'm addicted to the good stuff, but do still have a bit that I didn't spend nearly as much for.

    Finally a statistic where I am too young! But then I also don't have a sewing room, or enough fabric or "stuff". But I'm only 54, so I have a few years and some shopping to do!

    Not me either. I am 31, sew on my dinning room table, I need more fabric and don't have all the tools I'd love to have.

    I'm 69. I have a studio with a problem...My stuff has exploded out of it so there's quilting stuff in every room but the bathroom. I hate to admit I've spent that much, but I think I have.
