    Helping my friend organize her stash

    Here's a pic of the creams I have now folded for display. I put selvages together, fold again, then use a 6" ruler to fold the fabric around....no boards. really works great for display and easy to do. Enjoy!

    WOW! Can you come to my shop? I could REALLY use the help
    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    Looks very nice. How is it for pulling fabrics out and putting back in place? I assume you ironed the fabrics before folding them.

    I did press the fabrics that needed it but not all of them. They are much easier to see and take out as needed. I also stack them horizontally just as easily.

    I love the shelf you are using. Was it made especially for your fabric or is it deeper than it looks? I really need to organize again, I tried the comic boards but they don't work with larger pieces of fabric or thick fabric like denim. I will try the ruler, thanks.

    It's just a normal book case - not made special but does fit the fabric nicely. Hope this works for you!

    I envy your stash of creams. Love creams. To me they help to soothe a quilt.
