    survey for comic board users

    I just decided to redo my shelves and room when I looked for a project I wanted to start on and couldn't find it. It's somewhere altogether.. I bought the boards and can see I am going to need much more. I am also cleaning out all the pieces smaller than 1/4 yard. These are fabrics I have had for a long time so out they go. Well into the scrap bin.
    The ones on the 2nd shelf are the " don't wrap like this" ones.
    The ones on the left of the 3rd shelf I like much better.
    I am writing the yardage on the board itself in pencil. On the non shiny side.
    Top shelf is going to be my solids.. And if there is room the tone on tones.
    I really am trying to get rid of a lot of my "stuffs" and just have what I need to finish projects and what I will work on in the future.

    I was thinking of getting oversized paperclips in colors to hold the fabric - or maybe colored quilting pins - using the color to indicate the yardage. Red for over 5 yards, Green for 3-5 yards, etc. however it might work best.

    Good idea right now I am using tiny applique pins to hold the fabric .

    ruler fold method

I have the 6 1/2 x 10 1/2 boards. And this is a dumb question, but I would like to know, just which side is the acid free side? The shiny or dull. When I get my sewing room back in order, BIG REMODEL, I will post pictures of my boarded fabric. I will definitely keep an eye on this thread.
    what is the ruler fold method for folding your stash thanks for any information

    I started using the comic book boards & just love them. I had ordered some on line but then realized I had a comic book store right in my town & they were cheaper getting them there. I usually only use one board & have wrapped up to 6 yds or more on one. I have all my fabric in totes so I don't have to worry about trying to stand them up. The smallest I wrap is one yard & I found the best thing to hold them on is with the #2 small ideal clamps from Office Max. You can get 50 for $3.00 or wait for their sale of 20 % off whatever fits in the bag. They kind of look like a criss cross paper clips. I also measure the fabric before putting it on the board & then use the string price tags, with the hole in them, and put the amount of fabric that is on the board. I just cut the string off & use a cheap tiny safety pin to pin it to the fabric. The fabric that is less than a yard I measure & just fold it & put a tag on it with the amount. I love how easy it is to see what fabric I have & if I need a certain amount all I have to do is look at the tags & know if it will work or not. I have a long ways to go but it sure is fun finding fabric that I didn't remember that I had!
