    I have to pipe in...my DH took me an hour away to a quilt shop here in Germany and let me look and spend and I even got to meet another board member. He does put his two cents in when I'm selecting fabric but i take it cause hes there with me. I love him so very much, I even showed him the long arm there sorry to say it still does not impress him enough to buy me one LMAO but I tried!!! Way to go great Dh's!!

    You are so blessed to have a husband who is so thoughtful and considerate of you, and he is so blessed to have a wife who appreciates his good qualities!

    I am so lucky that my hubby does not seem to mind going into Joann's with me. We live about 75 miles away from good shopping, so I don't go too often. He works in town so once in a great while I give him a list of patterns to get when they are on sale, or even a swatch to match. Last week we went to Hobby Lobby and while I sat and looked for patterns to get. he looked around for blue fabric for the ninja outfit that our grandson had requested. I had made up my mind that I would like whatever he chose, but he did great and the fabric was perfect and on sale.

    I am happy to see so many of us have husbands with such wonderful qualities! Where I grew up, this was not seen...men in fabric stores. Of course, my husband is not from my hometown! He is helping me with the long arm he got me for Christmas. I don't think I was quite ready for one but it was such a great deal ( he found it) he thought I needed to go ahead and get it. Now, I am a little intimidated by it. He knows more about it than I do and is easing me into using it!
    Enjoy your day,

    You are a very lucky woman. I am thankful that my DH has woodworking as a hobby and can actually relate to some of my quilting patterns. He taught me how to square up a quilt by measuring, not only the sides but the diagonals as well. He programmed out GPS with quilt shops along our vacation route a couple of years ago--but prefers to stay in the car. And he is my fabric mule. He works in the US and has my online orders shipped to his hotel and then carrys them home to me. Saves a lot in shipping.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I have a wonderful husband too. He took me, with the cargo trailer, 6 hours one way, to buy about 2000 yds or fabric from one of our board members.

    What a sweetie you have! Sounds like a keeper! We just bought a new car yesterday and my dh stated (when he looked in the trunk) "You can fit a lot of fabric in that." Also (when we were test driving) "This will give you a smooth ride when driving on all those shop hops!" He's a funny, realistic man!
    Go forth and sew!

    My dh just sold his boat yesterday in order to downsize. He told me how much of the money he was going to spend on a replacement boat and told me I could have the rest of the money. LQS here I come!

    H has a favorite LQS! Knights in York, Maine. Even if I don't need anything (is this ever possible???) he insists we stop so HE can check out the fabrics/patterns,etc.! He does sew (only boy with 6 sisters, so Mom taught him when she taught the girls) but leaves the quilting to me. As an engineer, he's wonderful for figuring sizes and measurements, something I am terrible with. DH is also my go-to guy when my machine hiccups. Yeah, I guess some of us are very lucky to have these wonderful partners! :-)

    Isn't it wonderful when our DH's support our interests & hobbies. If just makes things so much easier.
