    So many of you talk about hiding your fabric purchases from your DH. I show my husband all the fabrics I buy and he even goes with me to the annual quilt show! He loves to see me happy so he indulges my passion. I am SO blessed. Of course, I don't go crazy when buying fabric - mostly buy for each project.

    How many of you DON'T have to hide your stash from your DH?

    Me. I have a prince too. He loves it that I'm so happy with my quilting studio. He's a very supportive best friend.

    I don't hide anything from my DH. He also enjoys going to quilt shows and never says a word if I am purchasing fabric for a quilt. I also do not collect fabric for the sake of collecting fabric. I have a small stash, but make up and use what I purchase.

    I don't have to hide my stash from DH, and he does try to be supportive, but he doesn't always "get it".

    However, he did say that if I can get rid of or use up half of my stash by Feb 2013 (I turn 30 then) that I can get a Nolting.. so, yea, I guess he really is a PRINCE

    I don't hide mine either. He takes me to Lancaster twice a year just to buy fabric. When I come out of a store with a small bag he'll ask if that is all I bought. Now I don't know that he realizes how many $$$$'s are being spent but it's my money and he doesn't question what I spend.

    No hiding for me either. Sometimes when he gets gift certificates he will ask me if I want it instead for a LQS. Just yesterday he was asking me if I wanted $100.00 one he was gonna be getting for a quilt shop. Gotta love him!!!

    Count me in!! He's very supportive and doesn't question. Let's hear it for all the princes! :D
    But you have to admit, this thread isn't going to be nearly as funny as the other one! LOL :D

    I don't have to hide any of my purchases either and he is usually with me when I am buying fabric. I don't consider myself lucky, it is the way it should be especially if we both work.

    If I had to hide anything I bought from DH, he'd soon be an ex-DH. Trust and respect and honesty have been the basis of our 41 year marriage. I truly feel sorry for people that have to hide something from a partner; something that brings them joy. This is not a partnership or a marriage. Sorry--this just really bothers me and gets me on my soapbox! Don't mean to offend anyone.

    I don't hide anything. In fact, my new purchases usually sit on the couch for awhile so we can admire them before I put them away.

    Have to agree with this. I could never question what brings my DH joy and he wouldn't do it either. Very good point, Jan! :thumbup:

    I don't hide mine, it's not that he's so supportive as oblivious. LOL! To be honest, he is pretty supportive and interested in WIP, but when your sewing room is as messy as mine, it's pretty hard to notice that there's something new in there.

    No hiding here, either! My husband actually asks me to make quilts for his friends and coworkers. And he'll always ask, when I'm working on something, "Who is getting that one?" He understands that I am always giving them away as gifts. He's a gem!

    No hiding here. I agree trust and respect are part of our marriage. He shops with me sometimes, will even look for LQS when we travel. I shop with him at Menards, Home Depot, etc with him.

    My husband also supports my passion for sewing & quilting. He goes to quilt shows, fabric stores, helps me chose fabrics, etc. I talk myself out of something & he insists I buy it, LOL.

    I don't hide fabric from DH, it's a matter of respect and trust. I respect our budget and he trusts me!

    Me... I do not hide anything... after all these years together... why? I got an early retirement at age 45 when I lost a very good 15 year job. We are farmers so I can always be used on the farm and did both work off the farm and farm for years... In fact, I put on my resume one time that "I could parallel park a grain truck", that of course was when they were small trucks not the semi's they use now. So he has been supportive of me all this time, I help with the farm and do some little off the farm jobs but not fulltime only in the area do not travel like I did with the other job. Very Happy not hiding anything from my prince..

    Never hide my fabric. In fact I often purchase on line when I see great sales so my hubby gets the deliveries during the day. We both trust each other to understand what we can and cannot afford.

    Of course, if he ever said anything about how much it costs to make a quilt I would kindly inquire about how much it costs him to catch fish (once you through in the boat, motor, dozens of fishing rods and oodles of tackle).
