    Fabric storage

    These are pictures of my small group of quilters and how they organized their fabric.. some of us went to help fold fabric and get it in order.. We get together once a month and spent 3 months on organization....

    I'm envious - of the stash & especially of the organization - looks great.

    Please come visit my sewing room. I always spend a lot of time geting everything in order then sew and make a big jumble of everything. I could use your organization skills.

    What a wonderful gift you guys gave to this quilter. Time is most precious of all gifts and when you add in fabric folding. Well just something money won't buy. I know she must love you all.

    Ms. Anniesews: I seem to have the same problem. What's with that?

    I am in the process of moving my sewing room downstairs and had to empty the large fabric cupboard. Well, my 13 yr old GD came over yesterday and had a ball putting the fabric back in there all color coordinated and will do the same for all my threads when I get those racks mounted again. She loves to organize.

    The before and after pictures were so interesting to see, thank-you for sharing.

    Last summer I took all my fabric and put on the comic boards...It is FANTASTIC! I used 350 comic boards anything over 6 yards I used two fabric boards folding from opposite directions. I didn't use the boards for anything less than one yard. Smaller pieces are now folded in drawers.

    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)
