    Fabric before and after w/comic boards.....

    I have finally organized my fabric on comic boards. I have a limited space to keep my fabric. This is cabinets in my sewing room. I also have a couple of totes that I want to organize also. I bought the boards at a local comic book store, they were $10 for 100. I was told the whole board was acid free, so that is what I'm going with. The bottom shelf in one of the pics are the fat qtrs and the top shelf in the other was Xmas & seasonal fabric. Not decided if I will put the fat qtrs on boards or not. I'm thinking not because I don't think they will all fit on that one shelf. Also like the other ladies who have posted about these boards I too found fabric I forgot I had. It is so nice to be able to see what I do have. I have room for a few more and one of the local quilt shops is having a good sale. I was there Friday and it was 55% off on some and 30% off on others. Last Sat the 55% off, went to 70% off. I wasn't able to go on Saturday. Darn it!

    I wish I had time to organize my fabrics. I know I have several pieces I forgot about.

    It looks amazing! I like looking at the mini bolts to see if I have any fabrics the same. I have some of the red and white peppermints. If the left side bottom shelf is bright multi colored bunnies, I have some of that too. What fun!

    Great idea, I'd like to do the boards but I will have to get a shelving unit with doors Bc I have fluorescent lighting in my room and it fades my fabric over time. Also my curtains aren't light blocking. I think I'll keep my eyes peeled for a cabinet this spring & summer at yard sales

    You did a great job. I'm only partially there, but hope someday to finish getting my fabric organized. Gotta say I love the comic boards.

    You did a great job and it looks super. I'm still wrapping and can hardly wait to get mine all done.
    My aunt walked in and said: It looks like a quilt shop in here. Love that. I don't wrap my fat qtrs.
    I put them in baskets. They're already folded so nicely and take up less space than if I were to put
    them on boards.

    It looks great. I would love to have a cabinet.

    We have solar screens on our windows, but I still try to keep the fabric away from the windows.

    that looks great. I need to explore and find a place in the craft room where I can do that too. Right now fabric isin bins which isn't all that bad considering there is a lot more than fabric packed up ....

    thanks ladies, I do love it and yes, I enjoy just looking at it. The cabinets are the old kitchen cabinets out of the kitchen when we did the remodel a few years back. My sewing room is small but I make it work.
