    I was hoping someone would have a wonderfully creative suggestion as to how to store a large quantity of fabric. I have 20+ yards of a fabric that I purchased to use as liner for my bags. My brilliant idea is tote or plastic bag. :hunf:

    Does it have to be kept in the 20-yard piece? I'm thinking that you could cut it into 2-yard pieces and hang them on those multiple skirt hanger thingies on a closet rod.

    I store my big stuff in SPACE BAGS>>>... Love it... I vacuum all the air out and the bag comes out like a brick. Then I can stack them.

    Keep it on the roll and find a place to lay it down or store up right.
