Organizing fabrics

I have begun this process. I know it may sound weird but I am finding it rather relaxing sorting, pressing, and wrapping them on comic book boards. I spent several hours yesterday and today doing it and have probably a few more hours yet before I have everything done. The drawers I have don’t quite accommodate having the boards stand up like I would like them to, but it is going to work. I don’t have room for more storage and really want to make do with the containers I have. I would rather spend my money on more fabric than storage units

Yay! I understand. The calming effect of having it done and seeing the fabric organized keeps you motivated to proceed. Happy organizing!

I found another clothes basket of fabrics. I really thought something else was in that basket. I should order another package of boards.

I started with 200 comic book boards and was sort of shocked when I went through the first 100 so fast. I still have more fabric to deal with. When I was checking out on Amazon they showed one of those “frequently purchased with this item” things. It was some clips to hold the fabric to the boards. I wound up ordering a bag of 500 (best value) and am really glad I did.

I placed an Amazon order tonight and forgot to order the boards! Duh! I've just used pins on mine.

......and it feels like a more relaxed space to me. Now I need to do a thorough spring cleaning— wash the curtains, windows, shampoo the carpet. But I want to sew a few things first.
