    I just love the way this looks, very nice, and I could see how easy it would be to spot the perfect fabric from your stash.

    Question, what about fading? I only ask because I had a quilt folded on a cedar chest at the foot of our bed, not in direct sunlight and when I opened it up, the edge was faded. Could this happen to fabric stored like this? I have shelves with plastic tubs and I just hate going in them to look for fabric, but I have always been worried about fading if I put the fabric in the open. Any have any answers.

    i cut mine about 8.5 x 11. I get 5 from each board that size plus one narrow one. I have a square scrap left over I'm giving to my daughter in law for her home school projects this winter.

    I suppose it can happen to any fabric stored on shelves no matter if it's folded or wound onto bolts. I have one piece of fabric that has faded over the years but it faded on all the folds, not just the one exposed to light. It was blue so it didn't hurt my feelings any to toss it.

    Scissor Queen. I would love to see how you store your scissors. It seem long ago you stated that you have over 200 pair.

    Uhh, well, they don't really get stored all that much. They tend to migrate around the house. I think there are scissors in every room of the house. I don't just have sewing scissors either. There are four pairs of those carbon steel Chinese scissors floating around here and there's a pair of those "cut a penny in half" scissors around here too. I have several different organizer things that have a pair or three stuck in. Decorative tins are always good for marking pens and a couple of pairs of scissors. I also have a small plastic organizer bin on my sewing desk with several pairs. I have one fancy pen/pencil holder from my tax days that's perfect for scissors. And of course they're just parked here and there.

    I'm not sure I could even count them anymore. Every time I try I'll find several pairs that I missed and end up losing count.

    Wow! Looks great! I thought the before picture was mis-labeled and I would have been thrilled if it was my after picture.

    Okay, that's it! I'm earmarking this post so I can show my hubby the next time he has a fit over sewing "stuff." Of course, I have way more stuff than I could ever use, but THAT is not the point! 200 pairs of scissors....now that's having a good point! (sorry I couldn't resist)

    Love your organization and sewing room.
    This is the Dollar Tree website page for the Readi-foam boards. They are a $1.00 each and you can order a case for $50 from the store or online. I just used an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper as a template and drew a line around them on the foam board to cut out the fabric boards. I cut them out with a hobby knife. You get a ton of fabric boards out of a case. Very cost effective.
