    Could you give us an idea of the layout to cut the boards from the sheet of foamcore? You said that you'd be able to get 8 pieces from a sheet. I would like to see the cutting layout so I can maximize each board. Thank you so much for this fabulous idea. My sewing room surely needs some organizing, and the foamcore boards are here waiting. Just have to get them cut properly and start sorting fabric! Thank you! bettyboop53

    Thanks for all the encouragement to get this posted, I hope this is helpful and if you need any more help I am just a plane away. I am just itching to be somewhere warm. :lol:

    What did your husband use to cut them?

    The boards look like coroplast or whatever it's called. It's plastic corrugated to look like cardboard basically. Sign stores usually have it in 4' x 8' sheets, my local one will cut them down to 2' x 4' (much, much easier to wrangle) without charge, but other places may charge.

    Free or low cost source is old political campaign signs. A lot of them are using these now, and post election, you can often get them free. A good scrub and they are good to go. I've not noticed any color transfer but the longest I've held anything on a sign was about 9 months, so I've not tried long term storage.

    To cut - T-square and a sharp utility knife have worked for me. It's SLOW cutting so the lines are across, but otherwise it warps when you wrap around. A jigsaw or sawzall might work, not sure.

    I did the same with mine and didn't even know how many fabrics I had! So neat and in order now - it was so worth the effort and the satisfaction you get when it is all done is priceless.

    Thanks for the folding lessons. They are certain to come in handy! I just need some shelves to go ahead with this. Right now it's all in bins. Love your well organized stash!
