Fabric Pheromones Hypnotize Sewers

A "study" published in the 1997 issue of the Western North Carolina Quilters Guild Newsletter reveals that pheromones given off by fabric can cause sewers to purchase "ungodly amounts" of cloth.

The study also states that large quantities of cloth stored in enclosed spaces may cause memory loss and "induce nesting syndrome (similar to the one squirrels have before the onset of winter, i.e. storing food)."
