Judie, I just discovered your articles today when I googled "quilt stash management," and your article came up. I am so happy to have found you. I plan to visit your regular website soon.
The article on stash management was very helpful. I am a certified, dyed-in-the-wool fabriholic, and have been buying fabric (usually for a particular project, seldom started; and sometimes just because I HAD to have it)since I was 16 years old and earning my own money; and YES, I still have most of that.
I have always worked, so now that I am retired and the kids are all raised, I have joined a quilting class and am learning how to do it. I could have dragged out all the quilting books and magazines that I have, and READ about how to do it, but having a learning experience with a hands-on teacher and interaction with my classmates (age range 12 to 77) is so much more fun! Faster, too.
Anyway, thank you for your postings, and I am sure that we will be communicating again.
