    I am going to get off of this computer and clean my studio floor

    I am going to get all the fabric off the floor before I go to bed tonight I swear. I did get the fabric out of the kitchen, except those 2 boxes I brought in from the garage. If any one lives close by send me a pm I will be getting rid of some of this.

    Good luck. I need to start cleaning out a lot of mine that I know I will never use. But it is so hard to do.

    Good luck with your clean-up. Having company for the holidays is always a good motivation for me.

    where abouts in MT do you live? I live ne of Stanley. You sure do have a lot of fabric. I have mine in totes until dd gets home to help redo on the boards. I find that I have more room when I do this. I just use the cardboard from Joanns as they just have to take it out to the dumpster anyway. saves them a trip and if the fabric comes folded on it it should still be good to put it back on it to store. We don't know how long it has been on the cardboard til it gets to the store anyway.

    I am in Helena. Keep in mind this is not cotton quilting fabric. It is good for all kinds of other things though and I use it for art quilts, but if the pieces are too big I get bored with it. I have too much and need to purge once in awhile.

    Hope you were successful!

    I think we have the same black shelving unit (top center of second photo). I LOVE mine! Very easy for ME to put together - without anyone's help. Been wanting to build shelves out of lumber but never got around to it.

    I love the cubicles, black only which does not distract from the colors of the fabric. The are so easy to assemble and one can add to them. They also contain the fabric well which I love. The heck with wood shelves, the wood takes up fabric space.

    Why? Doesn't your studio have a door? }:0)
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    I need to continue the picking up and putting away. I'm in the process of organizing, so the putting away is not always easy. My DD also has part of her stash here, and a machine. So she is in on the organizing. Something has to help. We need to "find " the table.
    good luck on your cleaning!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    A door? Why would I have a door? LOL! My studio, my most wonderful awesome studio was the living room of the people who lived here before me. The tiny little what could have been a bedroom is the living room and it has a door.

    This is so funny, I'm sorry I should explain. We do live in Az but my son lives in Mt with family. I could just hear my DDIL if I invaded her with my fabric. They do want us to move up there to be closer just don't know if they could handle my stash(he, he)
