    Small Question

    Was just looking at a thread about fabric storage in drawers and she mentions using comic boards? I must be out of the loop as I have no idea what comic boards are? Thanks.

    if you do an online search at google for comic boards, they'll show up. Looks like thick cardstock but different size & safe to archive. Tried to post a link but it didn't show up well...trying again. http://www.wayfair.com/Ultra-Pro-6.8...R-LTP1043.html

    CherylMae-don't feel bad. Once I started wandering around on the boards and first heard about comic boards, I thought people were posting on the wrong boards, thinking that they would be talking about Spiderman or something!

    Amazon sell them at decent price. If you fold material selvage to selvage and ten again it wraps up nicely around the comic board. It is so named because it is used to give support when storing comic books so they don't get bent.

    Instead of comic boards, consider foam boards at the dollar store. I don't remember the dimensions but I was able to cut three boards a bit narrower than the boards used for fabric bolts. They are thinner and they take up less space.

    I get the empty cardboard holders from Joann's. They give them to me free. Cut with box cutter to size needed. I guess I'm just cheap but works for me.
