    Comic Book Backings

    I just ordered a pack of 100 comic book backings for $11.25 with free shipping on Amazon for those
    of you who are considering folding and organizing your fabrics. Thought this was a good buy. They
    are silvertoned and also come in paks of 200 for about $5 more.

    Its the cardboard that is inserted into plastic bags for vintage comic books......supposed to be acid free. I ordered 100 the other day and begin wrapping my stash..almost used up all of them and need more. I only wrap uncut fat quarters, then 1/2 yd to 2yds. Less than fat qtr I fold and put in tray, more than 2 yds I fold and put in shelves.

    Thanks for the description. I guess I must not have this much material. I just got another shelf today. Tomorrow I will be busy. I am taking material out of bins. I need to see it togather to know what I might want to complete a project. I have a nice spacious sewing room in the basement. I have to be sure to have good light. Sometimes for a final choice I will bring the material up stairs for the natural light. Rowena101

    I always cut cardboard boxes from purchases into 6" x 10" boards to wrap fabric and place on bookshelves. It difinately makes it easier to find what I want and it repurposes the cardboard.

    SURVEY for COMIC BOARD users

    Above is a great discussion.

    IF you can find a local comic book store, they might carry the boards. IF they do, they're price is usually less than online pricing.

    Went through 200 boards - going to get 200 more tomorrow.
