Well, the New Year has started and with that I am in the mood to be more organized in my fabric corner. It seems I am always bringing more fabric in and starting more projects that I will ever finish and it's starting to get a bit overwhelming. Last weekend my mom and I attended a "Get Your Stash Together" class taught by a local quilter. It was a two hour session geared at how to organize and store fabric, tools, thread, books, patterns and magazines so that they are readily accessible. The main "Ah-ha" moment for me was simply in the folding of fabric. I know! Who knew that how I thought I had it all folded and organized wasn't quite, well... organized! I did already have most of my "stash" (separate from my "collections") separated by color, and that is a good start. For the most part I now have it separated into sizes too... scraps, 1/4 yard (or FQ's) to 1/2 yard pieces, and then anything bigger than a half yard. Using two different sized rulers I've been wrapping and folding, wrapping and folding. I can now see at a glance what fabric/color I have and roughly how much is available. Here are some before and after photos. I've only gotten through 6 smaller drawers and plan on folding every last fabric I have. Could take months!
