    my stash USED to face a west window, that had a blind...that didn't always make it closed.

    when i moved upstairs, i refolded a lot of my fabric & found some faded stripes on the outfacing fabric...

    now my stash faces a north wall with no windows... never had that problem again.

    There's a special place in heaven for your hubby!

    I have heavy plastic utility shelves in my stash closet. I put up a pretty butterfly shower curtain that isn't see thru. If I were to spend a little more, I'd buy wooden venetian blinds the width of the door.

    The venetian blinds would be good if you kept them closed and just pulled on the string to raise them when you where getting out you fabric, but have then so they close with the fins down that way it prevents the light getting in. If you want to store your cottons in the cupboard too, how about putting them in old video covers and stand them up beside the fabric so you can pick the cotton for the fabric at one time?

    My husband and I are in the design/idea phase of fixing up my dd's old room for my sewing room. She just got married and my former sewing room to-be is going to be needed for my mom to move in. The room faces south with the closet opposite the window. Our idea is to have the fabric in plastic boxes, small enough to move easily (maybe slightly larger than shoebox). I think I am going to have a design wall hanging on one of the walls. Connecting Threads has one with grommets on the top for $20. DH is going to rig it so I can roll it up and hook it when I don't want it down. I plan on having the sewing machine under the window with a U shaped work station. A separate cutting table from Ikea, bookshelf for books and magazines. Hopefully, a rocking chair and small tv. Sounds like my Crapalot will become my Camelot afterall!!

    I would use a spring rod and have fabric - curtain that I could pull back when using but drop down to protect from dust and sunlight. Someone had posted something showing her shelves had a drop down fabric cover - almost like a shade to protect her fabrics that was mounted to her cabinet.
