I've searched all over Connecting Threads and can't find them.

I found them here -https://www.connectingthreads.com/tools/Mini_Bolt_Boards__D82488.html - but they are coated on one side only, which means that they are not acid-free. Only one side is coated. That is fine for comic books, but not for fabric that is wrapped around the board.

Thanks, Dunster. I found some on Amazon.
It looks like a herd of elephants tromped through my room! Anything will help!

I've been using these comic book boards for the past couple years now. I purchased sizes 6.75x 10.5 and 8 x 11. Anything less than a yard goes into my scrap totes. 1yd to 2yd I used the smaller size and 3yd to 5yd I use the larger size. Anything larger than that I fold onto bolt boards. I have purchased over 1,500 so far and need to get busy folding those not on boards as I'd ran out a while back and had to order more. Haven't had any problems with my fabrics either. I do try to order that which is acid free though.

I have been using these for the last three years and no problems on any of my fabric I store them like books in closed cabinets and love it so easy to pull colors sort or add. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Walmart also sells them on line....that is where I got mine and I have not had a problem with fading they are not acid free. But they do work wonderful. You can order on line and pick up in store to avoid shipping costs.

If you get the one side acid free, there is no way to tell which side is acid free. I tried it, but lost my enthusiasm for it, and just folded my fabrics and tied them with selvage from previously used fabrics. Wrote the length of the fabric on the selvage that it was tied with.

Linda, if you put them on comic boarfds that are cut to fit your drawers, you can stand them on their sides and that way see at a glance what you have when you open the drawers. You acn also donthe same by making a template and foding them without the comic boards. Not in my studio now, but I will take photos and post later today so you can see what I mean.

Because we live in an old house with pets and are not as disciplined about vacuming and dusting as others, I have found that keeping my fabrics in drawers helps to keep them dust free and protected from light that can cause fading.

I use plastic clips without teeth for dress shirts off Amazon, $7.50 for 1000. One on each end works wonderfully.
