    I get it, I finally get it. I now understand why everyone has a STASH!!

    I just started quilting about 3 months ago. I have made it a point up until recently to not have a stash. I started buying fabric during sales and now have a super small stash. I was working on a baby quilt trying to finish it up and realized I did not have the fabric I needed. But wait for it...I DID, I went through my draws and found the perfect fabrics to finish the quilt.

    I get it I really do, now I want to go shopping and buy more fabric.

    Yep, it finially bit her. Consider your stash a going green experience. You don't jump into your vehicle and run all over town now searching for that material.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    We all knew you would get the bug sooner or later. We all started out with just fabrics for a quilt project then when you least expect it, it bites you and your hooked, LOL

    I don't think I would sew/quilt nearly as much if I did not have a stash. I think you are finding a reason to have a stash... you can just keep going on a project without breaking the mood by havingto stop and get the items for a project.

    It seems like I can't go into a fabric store without leaving with some fabric!

    Congrats. You will find a lot of enablers here that will encourage your new addiction. Warning though, be prepared for the coming addiction to VINTAGE sewing machines.

    I work in a hospital and see potential fabric squares in everybodys' uniform tops.
    Fabric is addicting and won't make you fat!

    Isn't it a wonderful feeling to find just the fabric that you need right at home in your own sewing room?

    I'm always buying fabrics on sale. It's just unreal how many times they are just the thing that one needs.

    Ditto! I now have 8 treadles! I love having a stash. It is a large collection of fabrics that I love and so I am always happy to use them. (Unlike a store where I will pass over many bolts because they are just not my cup of tea.)

    Oh, a budding baby! Yes, yes, yes!!! We're always glad when someone else becomes one of our stash addiction group.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.
