Confessions of a Quiltaholic!

Name: Nancy Posted: unknown
My name is Nancy and I am a fabriholic :)) I say that proudly, although sometimes I really get worried that I am obsessed. Like Debby I too am taking over the entire house with my fabric. My quilting addiction came about 1978, when my sister and I decided to take a class at night just to get out of the house, and alas ever since then I have been collecting fabric. I feel that I am now getting into my prime, as for the previous years it was off and on quilting. So I think that the saying "So much fabric, so little time" really applies to me now.

Hi, my name is Nancy, and I am a quiltaholic. I thought it would never happen to me. My mother was an excellent seamstress (although a bit too much of a perfectioness for my tastes), so I decided that sewing was something else I wasn't good enough to do. My children's stepmother is the quilter in the family. She's the one that made all the wedding and baby quilts - heirloom quality! So, of course, I couldn't compete with that! But, as luck would have it, I saw a story in a Woman's Day Magazine: "Make A Quilt In A Weekend"! Sure, I thought. But something made me go out and buy all the fabric and rotary cutter and mat, etc. It was an "Around the World" pattern - and it went together very quickly - didn't look too bad, either. It was tied, not quilted, and the binding looked like a 2nd grader did it - but I did finish it. Now I was hooked. Started making lap quilts for everyone I could think of - Machine quilted - looking better. Now fast forward 3 years - I have taken over the basement, fabric is my new drug of choice. DH is getting testier and testier. I don't think I will ever give it up! There is just something about the look and feel of fabric! And, I have found my creative niche at last! I only wish I could get addicted to things that are not so expensive! (It used to be gardening - but I don't have time for that now!) I'm getting ready to go on vacation - one whole week away from my machine and my computer! What will I do? You guessed it - I'll buy more fabric while I'm gone!

My name is Nancy. I am a quiltaholic. I just realized this a few days ago. About 6 months ago I decided that I was going to learn how to quilt. I watched every TV show on quilting I could find, got all the books they had at the library, rented how-to videos, and of course the "gazillion" quilting sites on the internet helped. I finally got enought fabric I decided to try a Log Cabin Quilt. After getting all the strips cut I started to sew it together. Then I found I COULDN'T QUIT. Whenever I would stop and try to lead a "normal" life I felt I should be in there sewing. I need to start a notebook because I have so many ideas now I'm afraid I'll forget them. I have to go now. You can hear my sewing machine calling to me, can't you?

Hi - I'm Nancy B and I am a fabricaholic - I not only like quilting fabric, I love all kinds of fabric - I can spot an expensive piece of fabric just by the touch. I must say I come by this quite honestly. My great aunt was a seamstress, my mother was one and so am I. I have been sewing for over 40 yrs and quilting for about 12 yrs. I am not only a quilting instructor, but I teach and sell lingerie. I have sooooooo much fabric that when I took a job out-of-state I moved some of my fabric too. I not only filled up my sewing room in NYS with fabric, I also have a sewing room in my condo in Ohio!!! I think that is the ultimate!!!! I find fabric and sewing as a wonderful and gratifying experience. I enjoy a new challange in different patterns and using different fabric. Sew, when I am not sewing in NYS I am sewing in Ohio. You know the old saying "the one who dies with the most fabric wins" - I believe that I am in the top 10!!!!

My obsession now extends to the internet where I explore the world of my quilting passion. Links to books, quilt shops, quilters all over the world,,,,it's mind boggling. I just realized, as I printed out the 11 pages of "Confessions", that having a slow motion printer gave me time to fold a load of laundry, start the dishwasher, and clean up the sink. There is hope!...Nellie
