    I have these and I love them. Just to give you an idea the are about the thickness of the cardboard you get in a dress shirt. They work great are acid free and easy to use!!

    I've used a combination of the plastic boards as well as comic boards - comic ones are more flimsy but have worked well when I stand them inbetween the fabrics rolled onto the plastic boards. They are inexpensive and I was able to get all my fabric organized this way.

    I have been wondering about doing this. Thanks craftybear, once again. And now I must find the closest place to purchase some.

    Thanks for sharing this -- I ordered some -- decided my boxes do not work as well as I would like. I think I will be able to store more fabric in less space with these!

    if you have a comic book store in your town go buy from them and save shipping. My town has 2 stores and I found a 100 boards for $6.99 but I bought 700 boards and now I can see what I have and I'm using from it.

    Love your cabinets with glass doors. Can't wait till I can develop my sewing studio. One of these cabinets may be in my future!

    I picked up a used box of 500 on ebay really cheap a while back. Here's what my stash looks like now.

    I just did my fabric with these and am very pleased. Slot cheaper but they look just as nice as the plastic ones

    The stashes look beautiful. So,I just checked Ebay and they only have expensive ones, but I'll check back on a regular basis.

    This is a great tip! Do you use only one "board" at a time?

    I ordered 200 and thought that was a lot--I may have to rethink that when I get started using them!! Sure like the way folk's stashes are looking. I'm anxious to get started on mine.

    I only use one board at a time. I also cut some in half for my small pieces of fabric.

    I found a store on the internet, TCBulk. It has 1000 for 50.50 +sh 27.41 to Ok. I think that is less than 8.00 per 100. Am I wrong. Have any of you ordered from them before? :roll:

    the bulk ones would come out to be about 70 cents each, including shipping and the other deal 8.00 for 100 would come out to be 8ocents a piece

    The 100 for 8.00 is without shipping. Shipping for me is 14.55. So you're looking at a lot more than .80. I don't know if I want to spend 70.00 and if I need a 1000.
    Although, when I look at my stash, hmmm, 1000 might not last very long. :lol: I'm sure I can find more fabric to buy.
