I have a terrible habit of buying fabrics. Every time I visit one of these fabric stores,I instantly think of buying a piece or pieces to make an outfit for myself. I cannot qualify to be a seamstress, I am not even passionate about sewing,still I have a tremendous desire to buy.

I bought two pieces a few years ago to make a dress for myself,it didn’t happen.I am thinking of having a proper place to do the job. So far I am not sure which room in the house will be perfect. As I could not decide,the pieces of fabric are lying folded hoping to take some kind of useful shape for me.

Couple of days ago I went to the fabric store with my daughter.She was looking for a pattern and material for a ‘Halloween’ costume. I looked around,saw some beautiful material for a Saree. While deciding which one will be perfect, I could hear a voice telling me,’Ranu you have new ones you haven’t yet worn,what makes you think you will wear this one’.I listened to the voice and stopped looking. Will I hear the voice again ,when I am itching to buy? I sincerely doubt.

The only way to break this habit is never to go to the fabric store,this is what I think.What do you think?

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing with us your love for fabric. This reminds me of my Grandmother who used to create all manner of items (shirts, dresses, trousers, etc.) with fabric. There is something very special about being able to make things by hand.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I am usually too lazy to buy new clothes, until sheer necessity compels me to :-D. But the moral of your story resonates with me, and something which I would like to keep in front of me when thinking about buying other stuff (such as DVDs, I think).
