    Thumbs up CAUTION....Comic book boards could damage your fabric

    I am helping a friend organize her sewing room. We discussed using comic book boards to wrap her fabric stash. Well just tonight I went online to find them and found out they are not completely acid-free. They are coated on one side only. The sites even suggest that comic book collectors replace the boards as the coating degrades over time.

    I now will advise my friend to use the 100% acid-free sign boards.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I just fold my fabrics over a ruler, then pull out the ruler and stack them.

    For those folks who use these things. You are way to organized! My stuff gets folded any which way and is finished.

    Same here. And I don't display my fabric on open shelves. Don't want to risk fading or dusty fabric.

    Same here, and I stand the folded fabric on edge in dresser drawers. Each drawer is arranged by color groups. When I open a drawer it's just like looking at a book shelf and I can see exactly what I've got.

    I don't understand the reason for 'Boards' to fold fabrics!? I fold my fabric toward the salvages till its about 5 wide then take the long strip and fold it til its about 8 or 10 in. put it in My color Labeled clear drawers! and have more $$$ for fabrics! lol
    Not like I need More fabric!!! just a Addiction!! I should open a Store!!
    May Your Life Be Full of Charity and Love.
