I have a Fons and Porter portable design wall. It cost about 18 dollars and I put it on hooks on the wall so I can take it down at anytime...I love it...

Oops didn't read all of the posts, will check at Joann's the next time I get to the town that has a Joann's - nearest one is 85 miles away, so can't get there on a daily basis. lol. carries it too. My local Joann's (both of them) only have dark grey in stock, so I went online & found it in tan at and ordered that. I think it'll "blend" with my walls better than the dark grey. Now I'm just waiting impatiently for it to arrive!

I found a number of vendors on eBay as well. There are a surprising number of colors of this headliner fabric available. I wonder if local upholstery shops might have it or know a source if one really wants/needs a specific color. Now, I'd love to put it on my closet door in my quilting room. I'd like tan or pink for that room. It would also make a nice, big design wall. I think I could put a spray adhesive on the doors and apply the fabric. I just don't know if the doors would then function as they are bi-pass doors.

Sewnoma- let me know when your headliner arrives and what you think. Better to let the delivery person bring the fabric to your home than trying to fit it in your roadster!
I continue with my organization project. It's feeling never-ending, but I am making progress. If I only had quilting things to organize...

If you want the foam boards but don't have space, they work great in front of bookcases of fabric. They are handy and the fabric from lite.
