Organizing Fabric

How do you store and organize your fabric so you can find just what you are looking for? Terri over at Funny Farm shared a great idea on organizing fabric. She uses a system of cubies and cardboard.

She says, "You will be amazed at the amount of fabric that can be stored this way. This was from two to three huge plastic storage containers full of fabric.I cannot explain what a time saver this has been for me. I can now see all of my fabric and am able to find it without digging through a bin."

If you use fabric for crafts, sewing or quilting you have to check it out. She has great pictures!

I have pull out drawers. I fold fabric into thick rectangles and I stack the fabric on it's side so I can see each piece when I open the drawer

Hi this is a great tip. I am an artsy fartsy myself so this is definitely handy for all my fabrics that I always mess up when I am browsing for a new project.

I love to look at fabric at JoAnns stores and the like. It's like scrapbook paper - I don't actually do anything with it ... I just love to look at it!
