    I am fortunate enough to have pots & pans drawers in my studio. I fold my fabric on Polar plastic boards and stand them in the drawers so I can see the edges of each one. Fat quarters are in the top shallow drawer. Large yardage is folded on boards from my LQS & are stored in the bottom drawer.

    Me either. But I already knew I wasn't.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    I use the plastic storage bins. Was going to try the color coordinated foam board look like a fabric store shelves thing.. then the possibility came up that I may need to move. Putting it all in plastic bins will save that part of packing later. And.. after clothes(including shoes) that will be my biggest packing project. So I am planning ahead!

    I started accumulating fabric just two weeks ago and now I have to go out to the Container Store to get more fabric storage bins! I've heard that if you store fabric in plastic (and keep it sealed) that the fabric may deteriorate or rot. Is this correct? Also I think there must be different ways to store based upon your temperature as well. Colorado tends to be dreadfully dry and I am wondering how to keep my fabric fresh. . . Suggestions? Comments?

    I got some 1 yard pieces at a recent LINUS work day..........they are rolled instead of being folded...neat little rolls...I was thinking maybe this would be a good way to do the smaller pieces....even those these are 1 yard pieces I just got. I currenly have all my fabric folded and stacked...problem is, the piece I need is always on the bottom and when you pull it out, it really messes up the pieces on top of it, so every so often I have to go and refold everything.. I think the foam board set up looks so pretty, and would eliminate that problem...BUT my cabinet is deep shelves....deep and tall...so not sure what size I would need to cut the foam board....anyone else got that problem, and what did you do about it?
