I missed that one for the same reason as Nancy and I don't have an heir named yet...No one in my family is worthy of my stash. I'm hoping for a granddaughter who'll appreciate my stash.

I'm IN TRAINING to be a fabricaholic. HOWEVER I LOVED all the samples in the questionnaire except the pink and brown one. Especially did I love the first one ...wasn't it CUTE? I wanted to touch the fabric!!!

I also took the quiz and missed only one. I do view the quilts first before heading to the vendors. But I spend lots of hours with the vendors and enjoy touching fabric. I did not need to take the quiz to know I am hooked on fabric. LOL. Sue

At least Sister Sue was honest. I think she caught the disease from me!! Poor Sue, she didn't know what she was getting into when she asked for help. I'm so glad she did, I also got a 9 and missed the same ones, but then depending on how busy the show is I think it is smarter to check out the vendors first so that there will be less people by the quilts at the end of the day and I don't mind hauling around what I buy at the vendors.
So Fun Nancy! I'm in training because I don't have a person for my stash, LOL No one in my family would appreciate my stash, or should I say my room full of fabric! I love to take non-quilters in my room and listen to their "OH MY GOODNESS" comments That's the pixie in me....
I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says: "Oh NO! She's UP!"
Oops! 10 out of 10. I'm a true Fabriholic. But then, I've known that for years. I just cannot pass some fabrics without touching them. I do buy fabric on-line sometimes, but I'm never really as happy with that as with going to a store and being able to feel the fabric before I buy it. Just doesn't "feel" right for some reason.
Oh, and as for who gets my stash when I'm gone, my niece (my estate administrator) has specific orders as to who gets my fabric. My sisters would like to simply throw it all out. But, if you pack it correctly and treat it nicely, fabric doesn't die or wear out, so whatever is still left in my stash will still be good when I go. Of course, I may actually get it all used up by then (plan on sticking around for at least another 30 years or so).

I probably should have scored 11 out of 10, had they included a bonus point for ever going to a fabric store because you haven't touched or smelled new fabric in awhile, or because you needed to pick up a bolt, hug it, and carry it around the store for awhile like a baby.
The 12th point would have been for ever seeing someone with a nice shirt or skirt or dress on, and wishing you had some of that fabric, too.

My name is Marcia and I am a Fabraholic... Geesh, you'd think I was a hoarder. NOT, but to some I could be? My mom. Heaven help the fire department if a fire breaks out in my home. It will be torched. All my little lovelies gone.

I got 8/10. But, there are reasons for some of our thinking -- I farm, have an antique shop - live 30 miles NW of Glendive, MT (The Enchanted Room) - I have been known to go to town for parts, run a load of wheat to the elevator - stop at ER and not touch fabric (I am dirty !!) and ask for someone to get and cut a particular fabric for me .... I would't want to get Finger Prints on stuff I shouldn't -- but they haven know me for years - smile and say of course....Love your local quilt shop and those that work there!!! They even point out sales and things they know "are up my alley.!!" I am sure I have a fabric addiction - 2 quilting rooms, 3 clothsets full - recently was blessed with a Baby Lock Jewel quilting machine. DH just told me yesterday - to women like me - price is no object - fabric, machines, books, patterns, tools, OOPS! The enabler spoke. Happy quilting, Cindy

Wishing!!! Honey, I've ASKED them for it when they were done (and actually got some!!!) That is until those folks decided they wanted to use the shirts too...bummer. I'm naturally shy (I am, really) and would never think about asking for anything like that...but those cotton shirts drove me over the edge and out of the proper conduct box.
"I can't believe that someone suggested to throw it all out and start over nancyc20 do they not know how much that would cost!!!?"
Bonnie, I don't even want to know how much it have cost (at lower prices!!!) I could never recover it...
