    I have discovered a love for fabrics that I never knew I had.
    Now I can not pass something without touching it, and when I walk into a fabric store, I feel like a kid in a candy store. All those colors, textures, smells, etc.

    I love seeing it spread out, I love seeing it cut into stacks, or rolled into jelly rolls, I love seeing it folded into neat little piles, or even the scrap heap that collects from cuttings.

    I love the feel of a quilt top, and can not help but admire the way it all comes together.

    (not to mention the desire to purchase every piece of fabric I see for sale on here, sucks to be broke)

    Am I a fabric addict?

    You are on the wrong board if you are not!! I've been this way since about age 8 and it never gets better.

    Yup, sounds like you're an addict. And you won't find any 12-step program here. We're a bunch of enablers. :)

    You can't be a true quilter/sewer without loving fabric...that is all part of our craft for sure....right now I have become addicted to collecting patterns....need to stop but can't, not yet....don't quite have enough for the next hundred years.....

    I've been a fabric addict since my parents bought chicken feed in those lovely feedsacks. I think I was about 5 when they started the farm, and 10 when we moved and became "citified." I now have WAY too much fabric and don't know what I will do with it all when I downsize and move in the next couple months.

    What I wouldn't do for those feedsacks now!! :)

    you are in perfect company here on the board...I think we can all relate to this addiction or should I say we all should admit to it *L* maybe we need a designated national day to shop for quilting supplies..I vote for all the days that end in "Y" that should work for everyone..crafty_linda_b

    the 12 step program for fabriholics consists of finding more fabrics, 1 step at a time

    :D

    Nice to know I am in great company
