So, we’re all guilty of dragging our man around the local fabric or haberdashery shop, right? I’m lucky in the fact I have met the love of my life and he totally understands the hobby I have, and dare I say my passion is actually one of the reasons he fell in love with me. But, that doesn’t mean a fabric shopping trip is top of his to-do list, so here’s his guide on how to survive the ordeal…
1 If she likes the fabric, you like the fabric. Simple. A nod in agreement will do.
2 Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, question the intended use for said fabric. It’s pretty and that’s a good enough reason to purchase. (Note: acting as excited as she is will earn you brownie points!)
3 No, that isn’t like the load she bought last week. This is completely different and totally needs to be included in her stash.
4 No, you’re not bored!
5 There’s a strong chance you will lose each other, you will find yourself looking like Mr Bean waving from a far.
6 You may break something… look innocent and walk away…
7 When she says “shall we go?”, be subtle!
8 There’s usually a cafe at the end.
9 whilst she’s crafting away, just think of all the extra activities you can do!
10 If you bump into another guy being dragged around… sympathise, know his pain!
