    timd to come clean

    My husband thinks we are nuts, but I say we should just suck it up and admit it already, so I will go first.

    Hello, my name is Gina, and I am a fabric fondler.
    She looks for wool and flax And works with her hands in delight.

    Hi Gina, name's JoAnn and I'm very much a fabric fondler myself. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Ok, I confess I too am a fabric fondler. I like to go to the drawers I have my fabrics in (divided by color)and just go through and feel them envisioning the projects they might become.

    If it were only confined to my own drawers... My name is Annette and I fondle fabric in stores. Last week, I asked a co-worker could I touch her dress (we are close so it wasn't THAT kind of creepy) because I liked the way it moved and wanted to see what kind of material it was.

    Hello my name is Toni and I'm a fabric fondler. I have always loved this. I remember as a child to be able to touch velvet would almost make my eyes roll back into my head.The first time I felt Minky I almost fainted. LOL

    Oh yes, fondling fabric is my pleasure at present using flan nettle and brushed cotton and keep stroking as I sew.

    Hello my name is Dona and I'm a fabric fondler. I love to rub my hand along fabric. I will walk in a fabric store dragging my hand along the fabric. Then I will stop and caress the fabric. It makes me feel happy.

    Hello, my name is Debi, and I, too, am a fabric fondler. In fact, at least half of my stash is flannel. It regularly gets a pet when I pass by.

    My name is Nancy, and I'm a fabric fondler. I haven't found a 12 step program for it, so will be one for life. LOL
    I am making a concentrated effort to do my fondling in the sewing stores, and not have a huge stash at home....yeah, that will happen NOT.

    Guilty as charged. I work in a LQS and actually caught myself petting a new bolt that was still in its plastic wrap! I have a serious problem.

    This made me laugh......I've asked a stranger if I could touch her dress..........I guess she could tell that I wasn't THAT kind of creepy too since she said yes and confided that she was a fabricholic too!

    Me???? No way. But, you fabric fondlers should feel this new fabric I bought last week. It feels so good.
    Happy Quilting.

    Hi, my name is Kaelyn and I am a fabric fondler. Not just fabric for quilting, I also love to fondle clothing. I'm a very tactile person and collect blankets and socks with interesting fuzzy textures.

    My name is Kim...and I also love to fondle (or as we call it "pet") fabric. Some fabric just feels so soft...that is the kind I like to work with.

    OM, is that what it is called? I guess i am coming out of the closet too. I love flannel and I go into withdraws if I can't go to Joann's at least once a week. The coupons draw me in. I am glad I am not alone. Thank you ladies.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    I have a friend, who will remain anonymous for obvious reasons, who when she sees a fabric she just loves, says "oh I just wanted to lick it" She cracks me up!!

    I too, am a fabric fondler....and I confess that I go further than fondling...I have been known to actually take it home with me and love on it!!!! Thank goodness I don't work at a fabric store or they might fire me for admitting things like this to my group...!

    It's the right thing to do! If your fabric knows you love it, perhaps it will be more cooperative when you start cutting it and running a sharp needle over it.

    Guilty as charged. That is why I do not buy on line. I cannot feel it. Now do I have a problem or what.
