Organizing fabric in my Sewing Room


 I have been going thru my stash and organizing my sewing room this week and thought I would share with you what I have accomplished so far.

This is a picture of the right side of my closet .  Starting with the top shelf the fabric basket has my French General  fabric in it , the blue zipper bags in the center has all of my civil war fabric and the white wicker basket has FQ'S

Second shelf 1 yard or more of fabric has been folded  on comic books boards that I had seen on Nicole's blog.     More about that in a minute :-D

3rd and 4th shelf are quilt projects
These comic book boards are the BEST !  I bought them on Amazon .  They come in a bundle of 100 .  Now I can look at my fabric at a glance . No more stacked fabrics !  When ever I needed a piece of fabric from the stacks I had the whole pile would come tumbling down.  My shelves are deep so I kind of made a U shape lining up the fabric.  The fabric on the right that is stacked is fabric backings .

This cupboard is just over my sewing machine area and these are my precuts

I have more fabric to organize but it sure feels good to have most of it done :-D


  1. Things look so pretty and organized in your sewing room. I have too much fabric for things to look this good.

  2. Beautiful, Sue! Now....what are you going to sew since you can see it all?

  3. Oh Sue...I love the idea of comic book boards!! I'll have to research that here. Love your cupboard...looks lovely! Happy organizing!
    Hugs, Nancy

  4. Love seeing your cupboards! Your fabrics are beautiful and so well organized!

  5. Woo hoo! Your closet looks divine, and don't you have some lovely fabrics I bet you forgot you even had!

  6. Every time I organize, its all undone when I start a new project.

  7. Wonderful job--makes me motivated to get my own organized

  8. Can I hire you to organize my stash??? :)
