Fabrack Addict!

Paul has dubbed me a 'Fabrack Addict' This would be a play on the word crack addict. Only it's fabric. Has anyone ever been to Fabric Depot in Portland? It's the largest fabric store in the US. 7000 sq. ft. of beautiful, glorious fabric! Thank you Dani for introducing me! They have designer fabrics. They have designer patterns. I was truly shaking when I walked in! It is amazing! I also learned about the Puyallup Stiching Fair held in Puyallup WA every Feb. I just missed it. It's four days of demonstrations, designers, fabrics, quilting, crocheting, etc. I'm going next year - anyone coming?

Now the funny part of this story...........Paul was so excited for me to be getting fabric and patterns. He was excited that it makes me so happy to have a creative outlet. He asked me how much I spent - any of you who know Paul know that I don't really track what I spend very often and Paul is just happy to 'keep' me! I told him an estimate. He said 'Good. That makes me feel better.' I asked him why. He sheepishly told me that he won a bid on Ebay for a new set of golf clubs! I'm so happy for him! Just as long as he stays happy for me!

Too funny. I used to live in Puyallup, and the stitching fair is HUGE. I have a friend who goes every year. Let me know - I'd make the road trip with you guys next year. Also, I just sent you an email, but I have like 3 different addresses for you, so I don't know which one is the current. Let me know if you didn't get it! :)

It was a fun store! Now we just want to see the final product! That's funny that Dad bid on golf clubs. You two make me laugh. I love your dynamics.

LOVE IT! I think I'm a fabrack as well, only I think I'm a sewaddict.... I just love to sew! I'm excited to see your finished products. Maybe we should get together and sew one day, that would be fun!

I order online from Bee Square Fabrics and www.fabricworm.com. I am going to go and look at the Vanilla House patterns. Tater Patch in Merrill is having their annual sale on Saturday (the 14th) - it might be a good place to go browse! Sounds like you caught the same disease I did...do you think there's a cure? :) Charla
