Default I am not going to try this!

I got my 200 comic boards in the mail today, however, I am not going to do the fabric on the boards until after the holidays. I will have a big mess and I am still baking. I may do a few because I am excited. My cabinet is about 44 in depth so I guess I will have to boards stack in there in depth. I do not know anyway else to do this. Any suggestions?

I made a mistake on depth of cabinet, it is 23 and 1/2 inches. so my boards are 81/2 x 11 so I can fit two 11 to 11 in there. I fold my fabric in half of the folded 44or 45 inches on the board. how do you keep the last fold no matter where it lays solid. Do you put a small pin in it or what else? Thanks for the help.

I use these clips, two per board.

Those plastic alligator clips are the bomb. No getting poked, no rust, no rubber band debris.

Sewingsuz.... I'm right there with you! I just rearranged my sewing room and put these cabinets along one wall. I bought these ( see pic) from someone on craigslist who was selling his wife's stuff. There are 4 shelving units total. The comic book cardboard fit perfectly in those shelves. I can't wait! Dunster... thanks for your post...I was going to use pins, but those are perfect too! I'll be ordering!

I've been using these comic book boards for years. I use them to store 2 yards or less. Any bigger piece than that gets ruler folded and stacked flat.

For the comic book boards, just take your fabric and fold it with selvedges together, as it is on a big bolt. Then fold again, lengthwise. That should leave a width that fits well on the boards. Then wind the fabric around and secure.

I can't stand digging to see what I have, so I store these like books on a bookshelf, only one deep.

My fabric cupboard is deep enough that I can fit 2 rows on a shelf. I group my colours together so I put the green ones behind the green ones, the blue behind the blue and so on. I can look at the greens in front and if I don’t see what I want, I just pull out a section and look at the greens behind on the shelf.

I place a straight pin at the top edge to keep it together. Any pin that is not the yellow headed pins I keep in another little tray just for the comic book boards.
