    I fold the bottom corner up and secure the top with a jumbo vinyl coated paper clip.

    Finish winding it up and put a jumbo paper clip at the top to hold it.

    WOW, that looks wonderful. I wish my stash looked as good as your "before" picture. I need to find these boards and do my fabric that way. I have mine in piles and it makes a mess every time I pull something out because what I need is always on the bottom!!

    Amen...I jump in there and play but then when it comes back to seriously putting it all back, I have continued chaos. Love playing with my treasures. Right now I am getting my ironing finished so I can work more on organization, getting stuff out of storage and then I can sew again. yayay
