I store my fabric in plastic containers, fabric containers, sitting on shelving, in doctor bags, in dresser drawers and in a storage unit (like a bookcase with doors on it). I like the fabric containers, but I can't see what's inside. There is a place on the outside to slide a piece of paper with the name of what is inside into, but I've never done that. I think I should do that today. I have 12 of them. They are quite big and I have them stacked and have to go through each of them to find the one I need. I must be the laziest person alive! It would take 5 minutes to fix this problem. But I feel the most comfortable with my fabric stored in the fabric containers. They are hard and stand about 6" tall. I bought them from Fons and Porter. Excellent quality.
