    Wow, love the fabrics and the organization, I wish you ladies would come to California and help me with mine, I am using coroplast boards and am using a post-it-flag to mark the amount of fabric on each mini-bolt, with the distance I have to travel to purchase fabric a big stash is very welcome up here
    happy to have enough stash fabric at all time

    Did mine a year ago and it felt so good to have my fabric in order so I could find what I knew I had. Much easier to use stash than before it was organized.

    There's more there than in my local quilt shop, it's very nicely organized, color coded and all.

    I could sure use some of that organization in my room!
    It's not a stash-it's a fabric library!

    I was so surprised when I pulled fabric from the cabinets how much fabric I'd forgotten I had. I thought I had neatly folded and stacked but then stacks were in front of stacks and that's when fabrics got lost. I decided to donate fabrics that no longer were interesting to me.

    Now it is much, much easier to shop my own stash and with the price of fabric I'm always so happy to have stash fabric that fits exactly what I need....well, sometimes. :0)
    I just ordered some comic boards and plan to put my material on it. I am excited about it!

    Great job ladies. Well done. So nice to be able to see what you have and it is just more visually appealing.

    These are fantastic! I'm curious about the tray or boxes on the brown shelves. Can you share some information on those?

    Wow, could you come to my house?
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
