My sister came up with a wonderful idea for organizing our quilting fabrics. Why not file them? My husband donated an old beat up file cabinet from his office and I purchased hanging file folders from a used office supply store at 5 cents each. It's a letter sized cabinet and we are only using this one in the picture for smaller pieces of fabric (from fat quarters to 2 yards) but I have already purchased a much larger, legal size cabinet for other fabrics. I found it on Craig's List for 18$ and have already painted it white to match the smaller one! Now to get to the office supply store!
The drawers keep light and dust off my fabrics and I can now find any fabric in my stash quickly and remove it easily without disturbing a stack of fabric. Also, I can see what I have in stock for a project before I go shopping.
I don't know why but, the second picture was place sideways, so you will just have to tilt your head a little to the right! :?
