Stash Pot Pie Club

Here’s an easy test to see if you should join Stash Pot Pie. Ask yourself the questions that follow. If you answer yes to more than half of them, then you need Stash Pot Pie!

  1. Do you ever go on a fabric-buying binge?
  2. Do you ever shop for fabric alone?
  3. Do you consider yourself a social or recreational fabric collector?
  4. Is too much fabric never enough?
  5. Do you ever have a craving for more fabric?
  6. Are you in denial? Do you swear you’re actually saving money by building up your stash before cotton prices rise?
  7. Do you consider your habit “quilting therapy”?
  8. Have you ever fondled your stash first thing in the morning?
  9. Are you guilty of being a “pusher,” turning others on to your addiction?
  10. Have you ever experienced a “blackout”—finding fabric in your stash you don’t remember buying?
  11. Is your definition of a “needle exchange” different from that of others?
  12. Do you ever buy fabric when you are disappointed, under pressure, or have had a quarrel with someone
  13. Can you handle more fabric now than when you first started to quilt?
  14. When shopping with friends or spouses, do you try to sneak in a few extra fat quarters that others won’t know about?
  15. Do you sometimes feel uncomfortable if fabric is not available?
  16. Do you sometimes feel a little guilty about your stash?
  17. Has a family member or close friend ever expressed concern or complained about the size of your stash?
  18. Do you often want to continue buying fabric after your friends say you’ve had enough?
  19. Have you sometimes failed to keep promises you’ve made to yourself about controlling or cutting down on your stash?
  20. Are you an adult child of a quilter?
In the Stash Pot Pie, we will learn how to use the fabric in your stash so that you can buy more.  Know someone whose fabric stash is nearly as big as yours?  Invite them to join in!

Meeting monthly on the third Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the month through December at 1:00pm-4:00pm.    Refer to the calendar for specific dates as some may change due to scheduling conflicts that can't be avoided.
