I have a lot of books, more in a storage unit. I also have a large folder on my computer full of patterns. I should really get them organized, at least by piecing method, and burn to disks.

4 jackets full. I just bought a scanner and am in the process of scanning in the pictures of the ones I like then printing 15 at a time on one sheet of paper. That way I just have a few pages to look at for something to quilt and I wrote the mag, date and page # by each picture.
Still have no idea how to use the scanner for other things and they dont give step by step instructions on how to use it.

I have one plastic box of quilt and sewing and knitting magazines. :)
One tall 3-shelves of fabrics and two large plastic storages boxes of
quilting and sewing miscellaneous. Too much for a very small area :!:
Someday I'll have a bigger place just for quilting :D yoya

I have 5 large storage bins full of patterns. I used to get the patterns from the big stores when they got the new ones in. They would just throw them away, so I asked for them. LOL I will never use them all in this lifetime. But I like to share, so I usually give some away.

Let's not even get me started on the books, magazines, and printouts. LOL
I have 4 rooms of books, and mags. I have 8 large binders full of printouts, and still printing. LOL
