I'd go with painters' tape. Less likely that it will come off than the pin might come out and stab you! Plus if you want to leave any notes (eg. yardage) with the fabric, you can write it on the tape.

Don't lose your excitement or mess with your holiday prep. Let yourself do 2 or 3 per day. You'll see progress, save it becoming and onerous task while getting more excited ....... and pretty soon, you'll be doing 4 or 5 a day, etc! Have FUN!!! and Good Luck!

Those cabinets are the bomb! I am SO jealous! Lol. I have a couple cabinets but they don't have class doors and I would love to replace them with something like yours. Enjoy your cabinets and remember.... Quilters all over the world are drooling over yours.😁

Tartan, Thanks for the suggestion how to put two rows in so when I finish all the fabrics I will put green behind green and so on. You can get a lot of fabric on the shelf if they are standing up.

I too have purchased 200 comic boards for my smaller cuts of fabric. I just have to do it yet and that won't happen until after the holidays. My stash is waiting for a overhaul and airing. It is that time again. Anything over 1 yard will not go on the comic boards. But I am looking forward to getting started

Those clips look fantastic. I have seen them on men's shirts before, but not thought about using them for folded fabric. Something to add to my Christmas list. Thank you for the links.

I just realized that I have a new family member who owns a shop that maybe able to get me comic boards wholesale. HMMM. I would need a huge number of them.

I have also thought of buying archival card stock and making my own boards.

Could you put the fabric on the boards standing up in bins that would fit on the shelf? Pull out like a drawer and then you can see what you have....
It would drive me nuts to stand boards in front of another bunch... I just got all my fabric folded and stacked so I can see/admire it after years of having it in a cabinet that was too deep...

I bought the boards when we lived in the old house, over 2 years ago and still haven't done it. I think because I am ok with the way my stash closet is in this new house. They are too heavy to mail to anyone, I tried selling them locally but no takers. Oh well, maybe I will find a use for them.

These are fantastic shelves. I have my fabric behind glass, too, and it keeps everything dust-free. Your sewing space is adorable from what I can see. Lovely place to create..
