YES I AM!! I love different colors and textures and decided when I am tempted to increase my stash and I shouldn't I just take a trip to the fabric store to touch and ooh and ahh over new stuff but NOT buy unless for a specific project! My kids think it's crazy to just hang out at the fabric store to "browse," but I love to look and touch! Also certain fabric give me ideas for projects:) Do you do this???

This, I think, is common among those of us who sew or quilt, lol! We all need our fixes, don't we! I seem to collect fqs, cause I like having just a little of so many different fabrics. If I need more & the price is right, then I buy more, but most often, an fq will do. I love to just go & look too. The quilt show is this weekend here, & I definitely plan to do alot more looking than buying, but the buying is fun too, so am sure I will do a little bit of that also, lol... It's a good thing to be hooked on though, isn't it, considering how much bad stuff there is out there, that so many get hooked on, or addicted to in this life! I will take my addiction any day & am proud of it!

Yes and the best part is there is no rehab for us and that is a good thing.

Yes, we both are. Sometimes we get into trouble because we go to buying shows where there are thousands of choices, and end up buying way too much!

Yep mee too! I like to just look at fabrics, touch em. But I've learned the hard lesson that I cant have them all. I wish I could understand the need that I have to sew up so many quilts with no place for them to go.

Yes and no!!
Yes I'm a junkie
No I can't go to a LQS and just touch and look around- my wallet jumps out :D:D
If I can't buy anything I stay home. I'm really hopeless I guess!

Yep! I am! I like to look and "feel", even if I can't buy. Gotta get my fix somehow!
