    I know what you mean then I screamed again when I was folding it. But it is all on the shelf and I don't have to worry which one is washed when I need it. I am a starcher also but at least that is a little at a time.

    When I fabric shop I buy lots of large pieces and am always glad when it is washed and dried. I felt like you when I decided to refold all my fabrics. Didn't think I would ever finish, but I did, had fabric stacked everywhere.

    I am back to doing the same thing. The fabric from an estate stays in the garage until it goes into the wash. The airing out there has helped.

    Were yours all big pieces.....That makes it so much easier. Look forward to seeing what you will make with all that. Do you have a picture of your new stash all nicely organized and put away?

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
