    I asked my husband to stay in the car while I went into the LQS. He asked why was I going to long, no I just want to pick up my BOM and leave. I have too much now in fabric. If he comes with me, I buy way to much. Honey, do you like this?

    I need time to think how and which person I would use it for .

    So for my pocketbook sakes I try not to take him.

    proof I don't need more fabric

    No, I don't take DH with me. And he'd shoot me if my craft area was as plentiful as that, since it's in an open area of the house.

    My husband is an enabler so for the sake of our bank account I don't usually take him along. However, he has excellent taste and is even better company so I find it hard to leave him at home!

    Mine usually doesn't go but when he does - he sits patiently in the car while I shop - really its the only time he is patient while I shop.

    Mine doesn't like going with me. He will sometimes to watch our DD. But usually it's just DD (age 2) and I together.

    In the summer he takes me by bike. Sometimes he comes in with me. He loves to shop.

    No, my dh would be bored stiff if he came along as I shop for fabric!

    You don't do your quilt work in that room do you?

    Not unless we're out of town. He may browse a bit and then leave but he never rushes me :)

    You have a great place to quilt. I would have hubby to put up shevles all alone the wall something like this. I need more shevles myself, what I have is ful nowl. All of it is not cotton fabric. :-( I use acid free board to wrap the fabric around it.

    Geeze, if your Husbands influence increases your fabric purchases maybe I should start bringing yours around mine so it will rub off! ;)

    No, I don't bring Hubby, and I don't think anything short of several hundred dollars in payment could entice him to come along. Lol* He has zero...wait, if there's something less than zero...that's how much interest AND patience he has for fabric shopping! LoL* I don't mind though, he has a baseball card hobby and I'll be darned if I'm going along with him to his baseball card shops either! LOL*

    My DH is only along on the trip if we are traveling. He just hangs out or if he knows it will be a long time- he goes and plays golf.

    Wish I wasn't so far away- I would work along side of you to tidy up your room. That's what I am doing this AM- putting the patterns I pulled and sorting scraps before the big day-Tomorrow is production time.

    I'm not sure how you know you have too much fabric.

    I don't usually take DH, he gets rather antsy and I have to look at ALL the fabrics. But I do have to agree with previous poster, DH would divorce me if my craft room was as overstuffed as yours.

    Mine usually is the one to suggest we stop, he loves to shop, he likes all the gadgets and machines. He's a keeper and my enabler

    Mine is an enabler. He ought to be ashamed of himself!

    I try to go without my husband. Most of the time he'll wait in the car -- he doesn't complain how long it takes and in fact will say "back so soon?". :mrgreen: But I do feel the pressure - especially on hot days. If he comes into the store, he talks me into buying more fabric - and that gets expensive!!! :mrgreen:

    Mine has not gone yet, but is very willing. I may try to talk him into it this afternoon or weekend. I need to pick out fabric for my son's quilt and he has a great eye for things that go together well.
