The answer is, one who fondles fabric.



Next new word.......fibrififfer.....

Oh gee, I think they all fit me.

Fiesta said...

did you bring anything to hand stitch??

FUN time too.

Fabrifile is so appropriate. As long as I can remember, I have walked through stores with my hands out to feel the goodness. This means all clothing stores, too. I can tell the fibers in the clothing by touch. But, I'd rather sit and sort my stash.

I think you have a bit too much time on your hands lol.

My dog seems to be a fibrififfer. She has to sniff all new fabric that comes into the house. Silly dog even rolls around on it if I give her the chance. Picture this...I'm at the cutting table with 4 or 5 yards of fabric hanging over the edge while I am cutting strips. Along comes Suzi sniffing and then rolling in the fabric on the floor. Grrr but cute.

YES! But you do know how to make me laugh, and boy, do I ever need it today! Keep it up.

kpaints said...

P. S. There is life without fabric! It's just kinda dull! lol

Gene Black said...

so what do you call the ones who have to take the fabric and rub it against their cheek?

I might have done that on occasion. But I ain't confessing to anything!

Pat said...

Rachel said...

Well, I am definitely a lover (fondler) of fabric, but I can't say I sniff it. haha.

Rhonda said...

LOL. I know I get more pleasure out of buying fabric than buying clothes, food, or other items.

So I saw this saying in a quilt store in Lancaster that I like.
You don't expect a stamp collector to mail a letter with one of his stamps.
You don't expect a coin collector to get something out of a vending machine with one of his coins.
So why do you expect me to use my fabric. I am a fabric collector not a fabriholic.
It went something like that, I will try to write it down next time I am in there.
