    I have a tall (Walmart) bookshelf. My husband cut sturdy dividers to fit the heights of the shelves. Each section is for a different color fabric, and I separate solids from patterns. I roll, rather than fold, my pieces of fabric and even use rubber bands if the roll is large. It isn't perfect, and I really want a set up like Katie Paquini's and a few others I've seen. ^__^ But I can usually find what I'm looking for. Oh, and I add to it shamelessly if I find something I really like. Someone one this list said she had fabric from 23 years ago. I'm finishing up my first "real" quilt -- I started it 30 years ago.

    Well... you're in SC so this might not apply, but... anyone up north might be able to identify with this.

    My first apartment was on the second floor flat of an old city house. It had a lovely porch off the living room, with a drafty old door and two equally drafty windows facing west (toward the wind). The landlord was cheap so there were no storm windows or other insulation.

    Now, whenever the winter weather blew in, the temperature in the living room was six degrees colder than in the next room over. So I decided I would take my stash, and hang it from the curtain rods, over the windows and across the door. Yes, the room was very dark, but I was able to raise the temperature three degrees AND play with my fabric at the same time.

    (Still living outside Buffalo NY... need I say more?)
