That is the question! I’m a self-admitted fabric “collector”. This addiction started back in the day when it was really difficult to find much good fabric locally. So, I started buying fabric as I saw it, gradually building up my stash. I have known people who just buy fabric for the sake of it and never use it but I am not one of those people! I now buy most of my fabric from online vendors and really enjoy adding to my collection. Over the years, I have built up my own little in-house store that is better-stocked than any local shop could ever hope to be. :-) When The Boyfriend’s mother visited last weekend, she noted that “there is fabric in every closet!”. Um, yes, there is and that’s just the way I like it.
My friend Lindsay does not stash. Yes, you read that correctly. She admits to being a fabric teetotaler. Then, there’s Carolyn who might be even more of a collector than I am and whose blog posts often cause me to add a few more yards to my stash. Most of you are somewhere in the middle.
About 5 years ago, I took a fabric inventory. At the time, I had approximately 1200 yards in my collection. It’s grown since then, to be sure. And, no, I don’t feel the least bit guilty about it.
