I am also spending the day organizing my studio . I have started bringing up my containers of fabric and putting them on my shelves. Debra thinks I should keep everything in the containers, which has worked out great for the past 7 or 8 years, but since I have never tried storing my fabric this way, I still want to give it a try. Otherwise, my fabric will have to be kept in another area of the house because I don't have the space up here (without more shelves) to keep my fabric.
The reds were in three 16 x 11 x 6" containers and wound up actually taking up a space of 10x8x6". there are a couple of stacks of small pieces on the shelf above. I probably will end up returning those to containers. Don't be surprised. I have probably way more fabrics that could go with this. I have this cabinet in the basement filled with batiks
The two left hand drawers of this are stuffed with flannel. I need to find or empty out another container to put these fabrics in so that my friend can come and get this whole thing.
Like I said, I have fabric shoved into nooks and crannies all over the studio area of my basement. Yeah, I think I should stay snowed in for a couple of years. Because once I have everything in one place, I know that I will be disgusted with myself enough to not set foot in a fabric selling store for a LONG time.
I'm starting on my blues next. I am not even a big fan of blue and I have 3 containers!
