    My cabinet is 48" wide x 6' high x 24" deep.
    The very bottom has a tub of scraps, a quilt kit, some leftover batting. I used my 5 x 24" ruler to fold fabrics on. Large yardage pieces are folded selvage to selvage then fold to selvages. I have them behind the short stacks of smaller yardage pieces. Smaller yardage pieces were fold selvage to selvage and folded with the ruler, to see the back stacks, I take out a front stack and can see them.

    I'm so jealous. . . I have my stuff all neat - but there is not that much. I don't drool over the orginization of your room - I drool over the amount of choices you have! :)

    But - it looks very very nice!!!!

    even if i could gather that much fabric without cutting into it all, it would never look that neat and organized. :shock:

    This is just not fair! I want that too. I am so happy for you that you have it.

    Your fabric looks so nice...I'm feeling like I HAVE to get my sewing space spruced up because seeing yours, AlaskaSunshine's and other members work areas makes me so motivated to spiff up my space. When I do I'll post pictures but in the meantime, yours looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments.
    Oldest Daughter and I went fabric shopping Saturday and I bought about 80 85 Yd.s of fabrics, now I really have lots of choices. I would love to help organize everyone's fabrics but, doing good to do my own.
