    It was so great having so many scraps when I made masks to give away last year.

  2. Theresa Atkinson

    Because fabric is like having works of art. I consider myself an art museum

  3. Geraldine

    I have all of her collections I can't stop now

  4. Sally

    It's cheaper than therapy.

  5. Nancy

    When you find material that you forgot you had, and love it as much now as when you first saw it.

  6. Emily

    Its my birthday!

  7. Betty

    Because I just cleaned my sewing room and found an empty corner!

    Because walking into a quilt shop is therapy. Regardless of how I'm feeling, there is always a warm welcome and no judgement about how or why I am purchasing fabric. Much, much better than going to a therapist!! I'm worth it! :)

  9. Laurie

    Because I can.

    I have maintained for years that since I don't drink or smoke or do drugs I have to have some kind of vice so I buy lots and lots of fabric! Even my husband approves. I also do loads of charity quilts each year. That should count for something!
