My new sewing area is still a work in progress and my biggest problem is how to best store and organize my fabric. Most of my fabric cuts are 1 yard or smaller. Previously I’d begun using the comic book board “mini bolt” method but I’m finding that cumbersome to maintain so I think I’ll be switching to something else. I still love my Clip It Up system and will continue utilizing that for fat quarters and small leftover pieces.
While I think the Comic Book Board mini-bolts work well I’m thinking I need to utilize the space on my shelving a bit better and make it easy to store fabric without having to wrap it around the board and pin. I ordered a Prepac Storage Shelf with doors to keep my fabric safe from light, dust and corgi hair in my new sewing space. Stuff I don’t use regularly can go in the spare room closet so I can de-clutter.
Folding the fabric the Bonnie Hunter way seems like it would be a better use of the square inch in each shelf. I also save myself the cost of buying comic book boards and pins (I guess the boards will have to go onto Ebay or something). The mini-bolt system wasted a good 4-5 inches of each shelf depth so I think this folding system will work a bit better.
Who wants to come over and help me fold?
