  1. Molly Fox says

    I dream of fabrics and the joy they bring me. Even the ting craps as used with the grads to make crafts with a little fabris and glue.

  2. Joy Lamb says

    In the past year I have become a quilter, so most of my fabrics go to quilts, but I am getting excited about trying smaller projects for gifts also, especially totes

  3. Vallye Chandler says

    Those fabrics are so beautiful. They could be used in so many spring projects.

  4. Linda Friend says

    I like the fat quarter pattern. The fat quarter has interested me for some time. I just didn’t know the formal name for what I have been doing all along. Thank you for all the “Great” projects you put on your site.

  5. Sally says

    As primarily a quilter I like to use fabric to make quilts! I also use it to make purses, totes and household items – potholders, aprons, pillowcases etc. I love fabric and anything that can be done with it.

  6. Debbie Delcorio says

    I love to use scraps, fat quarters to make doll clothes for my grandbabies.
    Never can have to much fabric. I would love to win.

  7. smfsrout says

    Fabrics can be used to ‘make’ a project or as an accessory to a project. Depends on my project and mood.

  8. Sandy Yarbrough says

    I would definitely use it for a charity quilt. 99% of my stash goes for others. Thanks for doing this!

    I don’t craft with fabric much anymore. However, I knit a handbag that I will be lining with silk. If I win this fabric, it will go to my mom, who loves to quilt!

  11. Linda Barnes says

    I love fabric. I think I have enough for a store lol BUT, then we never have enough. I stop in at my local stores and just have to LOOK. Then always walk out with something, I make clothes, doll clothes, quilts, and am teaching some of my grand girls to sew. Can always use more.

  12. Diana Harmon says

    I use fat quarters to make all kinds of bags-make up, sunglasses, sewing kit, project bags for crochet work, etc. They work great for making doll clothes & totes for doll accessories, doll house furnishings & doll quilts for my Granddaughters, I also use them to line the crocheted purses & bags I make, they work great to mix, making very pretty “patchwork” bags & linings. I’m making accessory bags for the girls to keep a brush, lip balm & small tissue pack inside their backpacks now.

  13. Leslie says

    I am a quilter. I think about fabric and patterns all day. Sometimes that interferes with my job…. If dinner could be made with fabric, I might cook more often!

  14. Linda Rielly says

    I’m a seamstress and a crafter. I use fat quarters in making purses, doll dress’s stuffed animals, even piecing them together for clothing and quilting or making a cushion. There is an unmesurable amount of ways to fabrics and I love trying them all…

  15. Dorothy Moore says

    I like both webpages very much, especially the Jimmy Beans wool because it reminds me of
    a color wheel for fabrics. I use fabric in my quilting and my sewing, which I enjoy very much.

  16. Holly McCullough says

    I use my fabric to make cute hair bows and matching dresses for my first and only grand daughter, Lillian.

  17. Elaine F says

    Ive been making vibrant little purses with leather and fabric. I love machine embroidery as part of any project!

  18. Chris Wade says

    I am addicted to fabric. It is like being in a candy store. I can’t get enough. I love to quilt. The best part of a project is picking out the fabric and deciding how you will put it to use.

  19. connie from St. Louis says

    I quilt, so I use a LOT of fabric, but I also knit, crochet, weave and just general crafts so I am always making something.

  20. Torey says

    I am building a collection and I am also use them to make AG doll clothes. I hope to one day make a quilt.

  21. Jolene Jones says

    I am always excited to see new fabrics and patterns and cannot wait to use them for a project. I always envision the project when I see the fabric, just as if the fabric was speaking to me and telling me which project would be best for its use.

  22. Jan Harrison says

    I use fabric to make lovey’s (security blankets) & crochet around the fabric, we use it on smash books, pillows and so much more! I’ve been adventuring in sewing both blankets & clothing oh and an occasional stuffy or tote bag for family & friends 🙂

  23. Andi says

    As a new sewer I use leftover fabric to try new small projects for my kids and nephews

  24. Kathleen Giles says

    I use fabric to make charity quilts, clothes, soft toys…a variety of things really – even decorate and redo furniture. Right now I’m making a Veteran’s quilt in red, white and blue with a touch of gold, then a couple of baby quilts. feels good to give back to the community.

  25. Barbara Zamastil says

    I love creating quilts for cancer patients. Fun to have different fabrics and make different quilts.

  26. Angie says

    I am starting a small business from my home making bags and quilts Fabric is a lifestyle for me.

  27. Nicky Williams says

    I enjoy many many forms of sewing, from making very cute toy, quilts, textile art and mixed media work.
    I give most of my items away to friends and family who would like them and donate items to animal charities to rase funds. With left over fabric and wadding, I make animal beds for the same animal charities, nothing goes to waist 🙂
    Crafting and sewing is in my veins and I sew or read books of new methods of making and creating.

  28. Melissa says

    Not only do I make quilts i also use material to make message boards and for other odd crafts and my daughter and I go to the swap meet and sell them. Love that fabric!
