Default I didn't realize.



I purchased some comic book boards to re-arrange my fabric stash and started working on that this afternoon. I have only wrapped about 35 peices of fabric and have barely made a dent in my stash. I think I may need to order another 100 pack of boards. EeeeK! I didn't know I had accumulated that much fabric already.

How are you clipping your fabric to the comic boards? I'm toying with ordering these for the little bit of stash that I have.

I use the boards too. I quit clipping the fabric to the board. It's not necessary at all. Just be sure to put the boards on the shelf with the end of the fabric facing outward.

What is the maximum amount of fabric that a board can hold?

Thanks-

Comic book boards are acid free cardboard that comic book collectors use for archiving their old comic books. They work great when you fold fabric around them. You can put the fabric on shelves like books. Typically they cost about $10 for 100. I've wrapped up to 5 yards (sometimes when there's that much I use two). If I need to clip them I use a bobbie pin.

You could look in your local yellow pages under comic book shops. They carry them. Otherwise, Amazon is a great choice.
