    Go deeper on the site...she does beautiful hand appliqué and hand quilting, from what I saw. That is a whole lot of stash though!

    Interesting, I wonder if her home owners insurance covers that much stash.
    Just passing through!

    Wow! She wins!! I was feeling guilty about all the fabric I have and feeling like I really WON'T outlive it, but this woman makes me feel so much better. Not only does she have a fortune in fabric, she has a fortune in storage containers!!

    That is a huge amount of organized fabric containers. I could not break my stash down that specifically. I do use her suggestion about putting the contents of the container on an index card and inserting the card into the end of the container that shows off the shelf...but I only have a few containers not near 100!

    I don't have time to look now, but I wonder if she has completed projects posted somewhere online.

    Wow! That's amazing organization. My stash is very small as I usually buy what I need per project. ( my scraps are a different story)

    That must have taken a long time to do, but how nice to be able to go to one bin and pull what you want right out. I thought I had mine pretty organized, but now that I see this, not really.

    Oh my gosh!! Great blog article, but that is too much like OCD to me! LOL So, I was feeling a little guilty about that order I just put in at Thousands of Bolts this morning because I thought I had enough fabric, but now I am feeling okay. I too would never be able to use what she has there, but then again, if she does this as a business and not as a hobby, then she may go through the fabric a little more quickly than I would. Thanks for the link to the article
