    My name is Diane, and I'm a quiltaholic, big-time. Besides that, if it weren't enough, I'm a major fabriholic. Do you suppose it's a tactile deficiency from my childhood or something?

    My name is Twinkie. And, I am a fabriholic. I have searched and searched for a cure to no avail. Someone told me if I would learn how to quilt, it would releave the drive to buy fabric. THEY LIED!! Now I am a fabriholic and a quiltiholic.

    What is a person to do? I just have one question. Is it terminal??

    This is just too funny! I finally came out of the closet and had a cabinet built along one wall of my "office" (erstwhile bedroom) -12' long x 8' tall x 15" deep, and it's almost filled up already. You wouldn't believe where I keep finding fabric to transfer there - I amaze myself! I had even used rolls of batting to fill pillow shams on my guestroom bed, because I didn't have pillows long enough! That's a secret, though, so please don't tell anyone! :lol:

    At this point, repentence is completely out of the question.

    Can the quilt police lock you up for this crime? Will I become publicly known as an addict? If so I'm doomed.

    I am not a quiltaholic. I can stop anytime I want. I just don't want to.

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Rose and I am a quiltaholic and (shhhh don't tell anyone) a closet fabricaholic. I have been one since 1995 and when my family says I spend too much time quilting I just tell them that it is my therapy. It keeps me from getting into some really bad stuff like chocolate especially the stuff they import from Belgium. That stuff I have to hide. We are staying with my son and his family and when parcels keep coming for me my DIL says MORE fabric and patterns, I just reply you can never have enough of either. I am hoping that they never find a cure for either.

    Hi. I'm Clara Jo and all of the above apply to me. My Mother started me on this road at two years of age and it gets worse every year. I am shameless as I have started as many as possible on the same decadent way of life. I am not quite as bad as a friend who has 16 "Avon" boxes full of fabric stashed in her mobile home. But I am getting there.

    Hi. I am HisPatchwork, it is what I do. I will promote quilting at every opportunity, at any age. {i am going to start my 2yr old DGD this week on her own quilt of favorite 5" squares} I already started her sisters at 9yrs and 4yrs old. I have even spread the love to some of their friends. I will gladly host the local QA meetings in my area.

    This confessional started on Friday which is one of my days off from work and access to all of you. I too must confess proudly to my addiction for fabrics. I've sewn for many years but quilted only the past 5 years. Though some think there is a problem with this addiction I disagree and plan to convent this addiction as long a God allows my hands, my eyes and my sanity allows it. Artistic endeavors have always been encouraged in my family - painting, sculpting, caligraphy, sewing, knitting, crafts, music, woodworking and the list goes on. Looking back over 5 generations we all found our way to some artistic ability to entertain us during our leisure times. And with the help of my every growing stash, good music and a handful of delicious chocolate I will continue to seek help from my buddies on this website, my quilting friends in my guild, fun workshop and all of the challenges this website provide.

    My name is Kathy and I am a quilt-o-holic, a sew-o-holic, and a fabric-o-holic and I love it!! I often would rather stay home and quilt than go out to a social event.

    Otherwise I'd be in there right now - sewing away!
    This is not good for your health, get a 2nd machine. You could get sick from withdrawal. Maybe you could do hand work.

    Hi, I am a fabricaholic. I sewed before I got to quilting and I have more fabric than I will ever use, but buy more when it calls to me. My name is Anne

    I can't tell you who I am because then you would know me and since i Can't come out of the closet because I am buried under all of the fabric I think you will get the drift. Proud to be a fabriholic and have no plans to change.
