    6-3/4 x101/2" got 200 boards to start with but I know I will end
    up needing about 4-5 times that many once I get started.

    Now my problem is going to be WHERE/HOW will I store all these
    after I get my fabric folded onto them.

    But I will NOT go back to the store where I got these from as
    the guy pretty much made me mad as heck. He asked what was
    I planning to use that many boards for I told him for folding my
    fabric onto them.

    He made a few RUDE comments about about how "crafters" are
    always using things not intended for them. I told him I was being
    NICE by bringing my business LOCALLY to his store as to going to
    a big chain store or online to get them. But if he didn't want my
    business that was fine with me I can shop else where.
    GOOD for you, we try to buy local at the smaller "Mom and Pop" type stores when we can. Trying to help keeping them alive. But I'm like you, be rude, but I don't have to go back to them. We try to stay on budget, but I don't have to take rudeness, I'll take my money were they appreciated it!

    I have tried folding my fabrics over a 5 inch ruler and then sliding off. Saves space and makes it very neat. Have a long way to go yet though!

    OK, I am so impressed. Now what do I use to do the same thing ? Foam boards from where or comic boards from where. Help, please.

    Beautifully organized! Best part is if you just need a color fix all you have to do is open a drawer.

    Thanks to everyone for your nice comments! I think I will be checking thrift stores for dressers in the future! I have a few places around the house that I could easily put a few...

    I did most of the wrapping while enjoying some Netflix streamed TV Shows (finally getting hooked on Downton Abbey!) and listening to an audiobook. I started folding FQs for the top drawers yesterday and then will get back to another section of my stash.

    I'm not going put it all on boards because 1) I don't have enough bookcase or drawer space and 2)I have a lot of stash and my current system works pretty well. The most active stash is in the drawers as I'm always looking for binding to match a UFO or a blender fabric and love being able to see them at a glance!

    I've read about quilters getting foam boards from the Dollar Store. I got my boards from amazon.com because I have Prime Shipping and no local comic store.
