15 Reasons for Buying Fabric ( as if we need any reason)

At our Lancaster Trip Sherry gave each of us a copy of this, I thought you would enjoy it. Here they are: 1. It insulates the closet where its kept 2. It helps keep the economy going. It is our Patriotic duty to support cotton farmers, textile mills and Quilt shops 3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care 4.Because its on sale 5. Because I'm worth it. 6. A sudden increase in the boll weevil population might wipe out the cotton crop for the next 10 years 7.I'm participating in a contest: the one who dies with the most fabric WINS 8.It keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook it to enjoy it, and you never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it. 9. I need extra weight in the trunk of my car for traction on snowy, icy roads. This is important even in Florida and California, you never know when the weather will change. 10. Like dust its good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, like the ironing board, the laundry hamper, the dining room table.......... 11. When the big earthquake comes, all the quilt shops might be swallowed into the ground and never seen again 12. Stress from dealing with the Fabric Control Officer (my husband ) made me do it. 13. Its not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and make you feel good. 14, Buy it now before your husband retires and goes with you on all shopping expeditions. 15. A yard a day is all the Quilt Shops of America ask.

  2. I think I better start previewing my comments before posting so I won't have to delete them because of mis-typed words. Sorry about that. What I tried to say was -- LOL reading through these reasons for buying fabric, but then I realized that a number of them are quite valid!
