Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I get to talk to you about how I store my fabric.  And let me tell you that is a loaded question. Partly because I have quite a bit of fabric.  Hmmm... but don't we all.  As you saw in last week's post, there is a whole closet dedicated to my fabric storage and I will talk about that.

First let's talk about my scraps.  You probably won't believe this, but I don't actually have a lot.  What I do have is dedicated to projects in my project bins that I showed you in last week's blog post.  But here is my scrap basket.  Not much right?  But I do dig into it.

Then I have a HUGE collection of Black and White Fabrics.  Most of you know that I have a large stash of these because that is one of my loves.... Many of you have my book that I wrote all about it!  You can find it here.  So I usually buy 1/2 yard pieces when I see something I like and then fold it in a particular way and then store them underneath my long arm.  They are separated into their respective color way... either black or white for easy pickings.

I do have projects and bins inside my one Ikea cabinet.  And I think that is the messiest part of my studio... inside the cabinet.  But the projects are all in ziploc style bags or in bins.  Sheesh... I have a lot of projects going on.

Then I have some fat quarters and strip packs that sit on the top of those shelves underneath my longarm.  I don't have many pre-cuts because I just cut off whatever yardage I have.

Then around the back of my long arm, I have two other continents.... LOL!!!  I have my African and Australian fabrics.  I love them so much that they have their own special place.

Very much like I store my fabric in my closet, I have some stored right next to my sewing machines.  Folded right when I get them and put away neatly.  Here I have hand dyes, batiks, spots and dots on black and white or color fabrics.  It always makes me happy to look at them when I am sewing.

Then last but not least is the fabric that I sell online here.  Here is where I keep the bolts. I have a little bit of my Fresh Pickin's (its on sale)  fabric left and a little bit of Blue Moon too! I have my fall fabric line here too... but I can't show you, yet!

So how do you store your fabric?  Are you organized or not?

Hmmmm.... speaking of... would you like to win a grab bag of scraps from me?  If so, enter in the Rafflecopter here for a chance to win!!
