    Today I had to tear apart some borders I put on a block - did them upside down and since they were words it mattered.

    Rip out all the seams. Realize I have no batting to finish this quilt....grab my coupon and head to JoAnn's.

    I'm walking around drooling at some of their fabrics they just got in and this lady says "are you quilting" - I said "Yes, why?" She says "Looks like you had a rough day and had to rip apart something!" and she points at me....

    I look down and I had all the little threads from ripping out the seams all over my shirt and shorts!!! Everyone - hundreds of them! and of course I was wearing a dri-fit addidas shirt so they were clinging like crazy....

    Problem was - I didn't even brush them off - got my batting, paid, got into the car and just started laughing - lint rolled myself when I got home though!

    When I get to school in the morning my students often remark on how I was in the sewing room that morning it seems that same thing happens all of the time to me and I always forgetto check.

    I got the same thing, but it wasn't even at a fabric store. Just threads all over my sweater, lady asks, "Quilter?" haha

    Yep that's how I get recognized as a quilter and my DH as a quilter's DH, we have threads on all of our clothes

    I come home from work everyday with threads all over me. LOL
    I think sometime if I did not have threads all over me people would not know who I was.

    It's the latest fashion statement!!!!

    Loved your story. One of the quotes on the info page of this board says 'Quilters come with strings attached'. And I might add, we wear them like badges of honor!
