    I don't keep track of what I spend for quilting. It would probably scare me. LOL

    This is an interesting topic. I have a great job so I don't feel guilty. Probably spent about $5,000 last year but with that being said I am a relatively new quilter, am building up my stash, bought a new machine that will allow me to grow into and with it. Currently I take my quilts to a longarmer to be quilted but I am hoping to learn on this new machine to be able to do my own. I pieced 6 quilts last year and have 2 WIPs currently with several in the que. SO, I don't really feel guilty about the amount. and....going to Paducah in a few weeks. I guess if I did not have such a good job and or we could not afford it...it would be a different story.

    My DH's attitude is don't add it up, you don't really want to know.

    I was building my stash and supply items for a few years at the same $$$ rate, when I had the extra $$ to spend. Now with work cut backs etc, I have the fabric I need to make just about anything I dream up with minimal additional items to buy - I knew this day would come, so whenever I was buying fabric etc. I knew it would be for "someday" here I am, guilt free and a great stash! ;)

    I will do better in 2011, frugal will be my middle name and will work from my stash. I will only ask for gift certificates for holidays and my birthday etc.


    good grief!!!
