    tutorial for putting fabric on shelves

    I recently saw a tute on how to stack folded fabrics on shelves and, for the life of me, I can't find the postl
    I thought it was an Amy Butler tute or sew mama sew, but not sure. Can anyone help me find that link, please? Thank you. Ellie

    Oh, thank you so much. That is exactly what I was looking for. Where in the world did I come up with the name Amy Butler???? Wow, what an airhead I am.

    Anyway, thank you for taking the time to help me.

    Blessings, Ellie

    someone on here also put the 6-1/2 x 24 ruler right on the fabric and folded over the ruler, then took the ruler and
    rolled it more across the fabric and then just slide the ruler out of the fabric when done. I love this method.

    Hi, wordpaintervs

    I also like Kat13's suggestion with the ruler. I'm going to try that too and see which works best.

    Sounds interesting, I'll try that method too and see which one works best. Thank you.

    [QUOTE=sewellie;5686617]http://quiltville.com/pdf/StashFolding.pdf

    A funny thing happened when I first printed her pdf. To conserve paper, I printed it with 2 pages on one. Pages 5 and 6, which print first were in English, and the other pages printed in what I think are Russian, or something like that. I went back and reprinted the first 4 pages and they came out in English this time. I'm wondering what happened.

    This also happens to me when I copy something more that 5 pages. I was told it has to do with your printers memory. Not sure what that means. So now I just print 4 pages at a time, and all is fine.

    This is the first time it has happened to me, and I have copied multiple pages before without it happening to me. Just a fluke, I think, as when I went back to recopy the pages, it went to the same download that I'd used the first time.

    I use my 8 1/2 " x 24" ruler & use this method of folding fabric. Love it cause it stacks and fits great on the shelves.

    We have a great tute on board by our own Alaskasunshine. She made it last year and I have been happily using her method ever since, I also posted photos of my shelf with fabric. Hope this helps I believe you will find her post with her board name.

    I tried 2 different ways and actually like Kat13's suggestion with the ruler. Will send pictures later. Sewing room is a mess.
