hello, my name is Laurie...

...and I am a fabricolic! Ya know, I'm really not sure if a 12-step program would cure me of all the fabric I continually enjoy adding to my Textile Resource Center (fancy words for "fabric stash")! I love fabric. I love the feel of fabric. I love the color of fabric. I love the texture of fine fabrics. I love pretty fabrics. I love collecting fabric.....ok, I said it! I admit that I really do love to collect fabric....even when it's not for any specific project!

Haa! I only wish my stash could be this organized!
Maybe if I win THE contest, mine can will look this nice!

Laurie said...

Well then WOW Sue, you are one organized lady! I wish I could be "sew" organized! It's a gorgeous stash, that is for sure!

Hi Laurie,

My name is Laurie too. You know how I feel about fabric too..... We call the American Sewing Expo Fabricaholoics Anonymous.

Fabric is truly an addiction.

I've told some people that I enable myself and I like it that way. Who would want to give up their fabric, not I. There's some therapeutic about going into a fabric store/quilt shop and looking/touching all the beautiful pieces. Takes my stress level down.

Laurie said...

I "sew" agree, Jan! LOL!

I have the same addiction! HEHE! My problem is when I visit the 'Mom & Pop' shops. They always seem to have something that NOone else will;)

Laurie, now I wish I had waited to re-do my sewing room. What a great contest!..but I never win anything anyway so it's a good thing that I re-did my studio on my own now it's like having my very own fabric shop in my house and I love it!

Good Luck, i hope you win!!

Nice to meet you Laurie! I'm an embroidery thread-o-holic, so I quite understand you!! Sadly, we've been v low on funds of late, so I haven't really had a good stash development splurge for, gosh - it must be over 2 years already! I NEED a job!

Love your fabric resource centre - wonderful name and very pretty display.=)
