    I got my fabric organized!

    My BFF and I had a 'play date' the other day. She got me so motivated. I've been wanting to straighten up and reorganize my fabric shelves. We worked together and I'm loving the result. What do you think?

    That looks awesome. I need someone to get me motivated
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Looks wonderful. But, don't back away from new creations 'because you don't want to mess it up'. I have recently spruced up my sewing room-everything in its proper place. I realized that I need to set aside a few minutes each sewing day to put things where they belong. I do my housework that way-why not my sewing room? Enjoy your space.

    Great organization of your stash. I did mine a couple of years ago and, while a lot of work, being able to see the fabric and find what I want has been worth it. The only mistake I made was I bought one package of comic book boards that was too tall for my shelves (didn't pay attention when I bought them to the size). Of course when I got to them it was in the middle of the night but I was on a roll and didn't want to stop and wait until I could return them. Sooo, I found an old rotary blade that was going to be thrown away and used it to cut the boards down. It really worked well and I could continue wrapping my fabric.

    I think it's wonderful !! A great play date if ever there was one. It's so tidy and organized, like having your own quilt shop at your fingertips.

    Not organized yet...but...I did donate 6, count 'em, 6 large bags of fabric, UFO's and fabric strips. Local church group is having a quilt/rummage sale. I think that they will be able to use this stuff.

    Great job organizing your fabric. Somehow it doesn't seem so much like work when a friend is helping you.

    My friend just said she wanted to help me do that again we did it several years ago. I have no mojo to do it but if she wants to help well maybe I better take advantage of it!

    It looks fabulous. I was wondering tho if by having your stash on shelves in an open room does anyone worry about fade lines from sunlight in the room? I hate mine being in plastic storage boxes in a closet because I can’t see it like you can but I still wonder about fading and dust. How do you all feel about it?

    My sewing room is in my finished basement so the fabric doesn't get direct sunlight. I've never had any problems with fading.
