Fabric Mart is evil

...evil I tell you!  They know that I'm not purchasing fabric...so what do they do?  They bring out some of their best pieces evah.  Have you been to their site recently?  Have you seen the beauties?  Seriously...how is a true fabricaholic (Wanted to write fabric ho but am I really?  Would I sell my children for a piece?  No...*sigh*...not yet! *LOL*) suppose to resist this temptation?  So I caved yeap...I bought some...15 yards worth of some...so please forgive me because the only excuse I have to offer is that Fabric Mart is E-V-I-L!!!!






p.s.  I knew I wouldn't make it...I knew I couldn't last a month without having serious withdrawal issues...*sigh*  Guess I gotta find that 12 step group...

  3. Oh stop already!!! I didn't see THAT border print -- I luv border prints, too, and just received several yards of another one that they have, #810901, white background with brown/blue circles on the border (you should have this one in your stash if you don't already).

  11. Oh Dear - you are sooooo right - I too caved! I had to laugh when I saw this - why didn't you warn me *before* I purchased my fabric this afternoon? They roped me in with the bamboo fabric at a great price and pretty colors. I am down for 4 1/2 yds. Only the knowledge that Dh would see the paypal invoice kept me in check.

  15. GIVE IT UP, GIVE IT UP! Why do we try not to buy fabric. Yes we all have to much. But ohhh what pleasure we receive when that package comes in the mail or the ups man/woman. Why do we even try. Love that fabric you showed, but why can't I find fabric like that when I click on to fabric mart. I guess it's a good thing because I would have another fabric pusher on my hand, tempting me with all sorts of goodies.

  16. Wow! That is some gorgeous fabric and I can see why you fell for it. There's always tomorrow.

  17. I'm so excited I'll be meeting you in a fabric store in NY! But also a little nervous, it can only end in a fabric buying frenzy - I'd better bring a big shopping bag!

  18. I have been stalking your blog for over 4 months. You are truly an inspiration to me. I have started sewing again after....15 plus years. I visit the fabric store and buy fabric on a weekly basis. Your post "Fabric Mart is evil" made my day! Thanks! I feel I already know you! we are kindred spirits.

  19. You may have bought 15 yards over your pledge, but thats 15 yards worth of motivation to sew some beautiful new clothes for yourself! We'd all love to see, thats for sure.

  20. I am looking forward to seeing what you make! I am such an enabler...

  21. The only solution is to stay out of the candy store.

  22. That is beautiful fabric. No wonder you bought it. I hope you make it up instead of putting it in the closet as I'd love to see what it becomes.

  27. Hi Carolyn,

    I'll be in the garment district tomorrow (5/2)!!! I'm bringing 50 enthusiastic sewers from MD. I'm sure I'll be adding to my collection so you're not alone. LOL

  28. Never heard of Fabric Mart before your post. It's difficult to find apparel fabric here in small-town Ohio, so I signed up for the fabric sample club...can't buy without feeling the fabric. Thanks for the tip.
