    or eBay:

    Make sure you get the size you want.

    How about trying your local BORDERS BOOKS. I hear that they are selling off all books etc. You may get a good deal.

    I can't tell by he photo. Are they flat and hold just small amounts of fabric? Do they have air holes so the fabric doesn't mold. Help me understand please.
    thanks.

    Any books store carries them in the comic book section. I paid $8.99 for 100.

    I got mine at a comic book store. $9.00 for 100. Just waiting for more to come in. They are wonderful! You can see all your fabric, without digging through a tub, or pulling a whole stack off your shelf to get the one on the bottom. Fabric looks so pretty lined up on the shelf.
    I have not quite figured out what to do with my fat quarters though........still trying to come up with an idea for them.

    I have purchased them in 3 different sizes. I like the largest size for bulky fabrics but cut them in half for regular quilt fabrics using an old office type paper cutter. I have put up to 8 yards on one "card" and they look just like mini bolts of fabric. I have gone through 1 pkg of each size but mainly cut the large one, as I said. Remember how the newspaper boys rolled the ends of the newspaper before they threw them on your porch? Well, it works pretty well for fabrics if you don't stretch them too much.

    Thanks for the idea. I thought about cutting them in half, just have not gotten that far. It's nice to know that someone has done this and it does work.
