    I have been putting off cleaning my sewing room because it was such a disaster grrrrrr And looking at all the pictures of the nice sewing rooms everyone has I was feeling like I HAD TO clean up my room!!!! So here is the start of getting organized!! It is GREEN because I recycled fabric bolts :lol: Thanks for looking...I still have a long ways to go and as you all know the one with the most fabric when she/he dies wins....so I think I am going to be a winner hehehehehe..NO MORE FABRIC....NO MORE FABRIC....NO MORE FABRIC...if I keep telling myself this I may believe it!! It is truly a sickness...If it were alcohol I would surely be an alcoholic!!!!!

    Nice job! Did you cut the cardboard bolts? They don't look as wide as they are in the store. Cutting them would save a lot of space on the shelf, which seems to be the case on your shelves.

    Your stash is quite impressive. But I can see areas of missing color, which should be corrected right away. I do not see any really bright colors, like yellow, orange, lime green, etc.

    Oh girl I feel your pain, I'm in the process of destashing. Sewing my fingers to the bone. I want more up to date fabric but have made myself a promise to only buy what I need, you know backings, binding. Your stash looks great! I think you've made room for some more lovelys!

    Great job! Isn't it nice to be able to see what you actually have, and to be able to find it when you want to!

    It looks great!!

    My German Exchange student, after a discussion of why someone is called an Alcoholic or a Shopaholic turned to me and laughed and called me a Fabriholic! This was 4 years ago! I have collected several hundred yards since then.

They usually throw them away and I just asked if they would save them for me and they said yes..so that is where the GREEN work came in :) I have to laugh because they kept saying...you need more bolts...oh ok ......oh and yes I do have bright colors...just over to the right and not in the picture is actually more fabric...I know...I know ...(bowing head) I am sick.....so don't let me buy anymore fabric from any of you ok!!! I need help from everyone!

    I got the empty bolts from Walmart because they just throw them :) so check your store near you! I saw those plastic boards but thought it would cost me a fortune to do it so then I was thinking about bolts from walmart and called them and it worked out for me!!

    I stopped at Jo Ann's one day to pick up some solides to go with my baby fabric and I asked the gal what they did with the empty bolts. she said they throw them why? I said can you throw hem my way. she said how many do you want. I said whatever you got. I got a large garbage bag full. One day I sat down and dut them into 4 pieces same size and now have a laundry basket full waiting for me to wrap my fabric on them. Am going to put in bookcases and hang an heavy clear vinyl or heavy clear shower curtain in front to keep dust off. Then I can still see what I have.
