    Do any of you enjoy getting quilt related mail? I love it! I love any and all catalogs, brochures, anything. I especially enjoy when packages I've ordered come in: fabric, books, magazines, tools... the list goes on! I got in a new book (new to me) today "Quilting with Bits and Pieces". It's for quilts made from scraps... Very nice book; I just couldn't resist since it was on sale. I have more books and magazines than I will ever use, but I still cannot resist a good sale.

    Anyway, I was just wondering if I am the only one who looks forward to getting any and all quilting catalogs. Can't order from all of them, but I can sure do a lot of "wishful thinking!".

    I love to get the quilting catalogs! I agree, I can't buy all the books, tools, fabric, etc....but I love to drool over all the yummy patterns and colors. I hate to throw them away. When I crawl in bed at night, I often grab a catalog and flip though then and dream, and plan....and pretty soon, I am sleepy and drift off dreaming of how I could use this fabric or that fabric in a quilt like that.... ;-)

    Love any catalogue. Find lots of inspiration in them but especially love the quilting/fabric cats.

    I just received a catalog from Keepsake Quilting that a friend of mine sent to me. I've been scouring it since I got it!

    I do "wishful thinking" every time I go to a fabric website. Sometimes I even put fabric in my cart, then delete the whole cart. It's not as satisfying as actually buying the stuff, but it's a lot cheaper!

    I thought I was the only one who went "window shopping" and then dumped my cart when I realized I neither needed what I wanted nor could afford it. Thanks, oldgreymare, for making me feel a bit saner. LOL

    I love anything I read about quilting, anything I get in the mail regarding quilting, anything I see on TV about quilting. But what I love the most is getting fabric delivered that I have ordered.It just makes my day. I just love anything to do with quilting. Yes, I am addicted and proud of it!

    I love getting my Connecting Threads and Keepsake Quilting and usually love my magazines but I think I'm going to change by subscriptions. Definately getting rid of F&P, and now the new Quilters World was very disappointing. I think maybe McCalls Quilting for next year. Any other suggestions?

    Guess I"m "tight" too. I subscribe to Quiltmaker and Fons and Porter... The rest I usually get off ebay or from some of the quilting forums I watch. You can usually get several for the regular price of one. The patterns and ideas don't change, so I still enjoy looking at them.

    I love getting yummy quilting catalogs in the mail. Recently, I got a Yankee Candle catalog from my daughter and it was "scratch and sniff". Awesome.

    I wonder, are there ways that quilting catalogs could be more interactive? Maybe they could include a couple swatches or a crossword puzzle. What do you think?

    I think if any of the quilting shops sending out catalogs did this, they would definitely see their business go up. I love to order fabric, but am always unsure of the quality. Feeling might just make all the difference in the world.

    When the "Keepsake Quilting" catalog comes in the mail, DH always hides it behind his back and presents it to me as if it were a special delivery (which it is - I love that catalog).

    I came home after three days and there is a small stack of mags and ads from quilting type things. I hope everyone who gets catalogs etc other than Keepsake and COnnecting Threads anmdHancocks posts it on here so we can all subscribe. I look and buy and wish and then start over. LOL
