What is there about fabric that makes you feel so happy? The touch, feel, smell, texture can awaken the imagination. If there were just one reason that I sew, I would have to say, loud and clear FABRIC.
In my area, shops that sell fabric tend to only carry quilting fabric. While I admire quilting, I yearn for the fabrics of garments. Gaberdine, silks, snuggley flannels. To touch them, to feel them, to experience them.

what about a quality fabric gives personality to a rather ordinary garment. Somehow I think I'm not alone in this rather fanciful love of fabric. Why else do so many women who sew have their "stash".
