A fabric stash
is a collection
, taking up space
the lives of people who sew
in particular are notorious
for being collectors of fabric.
My fabric stash takes up three-fourths of my one-car garage. It is in boxes and totes and plastic tubs. Sometimes my kids drag it out and play with it. Sometimes I drag it out and play with it.
We are always adding to our stash. That is why quilters always visit quilt shops wherever they travel. Long lists of such shops exist all over the web, making it convenient to go drop half a week's salary on some 100% cotton fabric (which is all quilters buy) to add to the stash.
