The awful truth
2008 Fabric Purchased 86 yards
2008 Fabric Used, Items DONE 113 yards
2008 $ spent for sewing and quilting related supplies $1,427.00
I started keeping track of ALL my fabric/sewing related purchases, in January 2008. Of course, I've lapsed a time or two but here it is folks - the TRUTH! A LOT of my costs are books - I'm a sicker uhhh, SUCKER for them! Also, a big chunck of my $ spent was for a Quilt Convention. I've refrained from new fabric purchases much more frequently than in previous years.
Hey, remember if you use some of that fabric and old batting for MQ practice, and keep or throw it out, you can count it as USED UP!
Remember that survey that Quilter's Newsletter Magazine (I hope that's right) did a number of years ago? According to that survey, I fall kinda in the middle of the 'average' quilter/sewist, regarding $ spent, but that survey was a number of years ago, so with inflation, cost of living increases, I'm spending LESS than the average. Hmphhhpghhhh so there! my dear DH.
