    This is from a friend of mine.

    No one expects the stamp collector to actually mail letters with his stamps.
    No one expects the coin collector to use his coins in a vending machine for soda.
    So WHY does everybody expect me to use my fabric collection to actually SEW anything?!!
    I'm not a fabriholic; I'm a fabric collector!

    Does this mean you're a fabric collector if you don't use your stash, but a fabriholic if you do?

    And in the same way you would not ask Picasso to paint your garage doors, don't ask me to hem your pants or sew on buttons!!

    I quilt therefore I am. 8-)

    No, if it's being used, then you're a fabric artist! :D

    I agree!

    I've wondered the same thing as sometimes people post rather "caustic" remarks how someone has an "obligation" to give away so much of her stash as she has "too much to use" in a lifetime, etc.

    No one has that opinion about figurines (think Hummels), sets of china, etc. Many people collect things that their families will have to deal with after they die, and yet you don't hear people telling them "Please sell this when you get to be 70 or 75 so I don't have to deal with it after you die" do you? Would you tell your mom or dad to sell something that brings them pleasure every time they look at it, just so you as the child, don't have to deal with it?

    Maybe I would if I lived closer to my parents I would. :)

    A-freakin-men!! I *DESPISE* repairs & alterations. In fact, I had maternity dress slacks that I stopped wearing when my feet were too swollen for heels, because they were too long to wear with flats, and I didn't want to be bothered with hemming them...
