    I don't have much to organize, but...

    I only recently started quilting so I have a pretty small stash. My sewing machine is on the dining room table (what else are they good for?) so I wanted somewhere to put my fabrics and stuff that looked decent. Hubby and I found this cool cabinet in the local antique shop today. Perfect for my fabrics. Price was right so we brought it home.

    My stash looks lost in there. Looks like I need to do some shopping!

    THAT is a terrific find. I'd love to have one in my home. AND your fabric looks great in it, as you can actually SEE the fabric.

    Lovely cabinet...beware, your stash will grow overnight while you're sleeping.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    You are smart to get a great dispay/storage cabinet, before your stash is overwhelming (trust me, it happens)!

    Wonderful cabinet and a great start on your stash! You might want to line the shelves with an acid free paper. Just a suggestion. :-)

    How very neat and tidy you are. Wish I were more like you. I'm more the wild raccoon type. A little bit of everything, everywhere!

    This is perfect. You will soon have more to stash away.

    Its a beautiful cabinet and a lovely stash. Please listen carefully to me: Don't buy too much fabric. Stashes get out of control and fabric is so expensive. Yes, I know it's beautiful and heavenly to touch but you don't have to buy jewelry or gorgeous clothes each time you see them. Same with fabric, have a project to work on and buy fabric for that. Ask me why I am telling you this......

    Beautiful cabinet. I wouldn't go out shopping for more fabric just to fill it up. Buy only what you need for the current project, but try to use some of what you already have, too. You will be surprised at how fast that cabinet will fill up.

    Beautiful piece of furniture put to great use! I really like antiques in the sewing room-they just seem so warm and comfortable. And, yes, beware, your stash will grow. I like mine organized for sure, but it does grow.
