About

Fabric Addiction

My story begins with a long attraction to beautiful fabric. At first, I bought a lot of fabric for specific purposes and made quilts for my children, my beds, and selected friends. Then I joined a quilt guild and learned more about quilting, and began to take workshops. Along the way I fell in love with certain designer's fabrics and began collecting them just because they were beautiful. I first found Kaffe Fassett, then Amy Butler, then Jane Sassaman, along with several others. Then one day I realized I had way too much fabric--more than I could ever use in quilts, but way too much to sit in my sewing room and not be seen. My knitting friends liked my bags and asked for more, and I began making them and selling them locally through my neighborhood quilt shop "The Quarter Stitch". I designed a few bags and had my friends test them out. They made suggestions, and the bags began to sell. So I decided to expand and keep making bags until my fabric stash became small enough to make room for my growing addiction to yarn. I am an avid knitter and I also love beautiful yarn. I use my bags and make them as functional and beautiful as I can. I am open to suggestions, so feel free to let me know what you think.

I hope you enjoy the fruits of my fabric addiction and find my bags useful and attractive. If you, like me, are better at starting projects than finishing them, you might enjoy my medium boxes called "Joy" (for the joy of starting a new project), as they have a vinyl pocket for you to label your project so you can label it to help you if you put it in time out and retrieve it later. I find it helpful to know the project name, date and place in the pattern where I stopped. I started making markers to sell by popular demand for more after I gifted them to my friends at our shop Christmas party. I consider them functional jewelry for my knitting--hope you will like them too.
