Folding fabric II

Progress being made. As suggested, I'm folding a little at a time. I'm amazed at how much space I'm saving. 10 bolts laying on their side will take up 1 shelf spot. When folded, I can store up to 50 bolts of fabric on 1 shelf.

What's even better, when folded and organized, I can actually see (and plan) my inventory. I still have several more boxes of fabric to sort and fold, but I'm finding all kinds of surprises. I haven't started on my fabric closet yet, but I've made MAJOR improvement in other areas.

What a nifty idea to fold and organize our sewing areas! Everyone's progress has been very motivating!

Wow, what a difference!

I must say, cleaning out my sewing room was such a good thing; we must be sure to send mom some fabric as a big thank you for getting us started on all the cleaning and organizing!!!

Just kidding if you read this mom!

I read that Patty.. and don't you dare ship me any fabric :)

Don't you just love being able to run your eyes down the fabric and see at a glance just what you're looking for? and all those surprise finds are so much fun.
Keep posting pic's, I'm enjoying them.

Oh wow! Look at that gorgeous fabric! You have a very nice blog! It's nice to meet a fellow sewer, although I must admit, I'm not the greatest sewer around. I do love to sew though, so hopefully in time I will improve. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!
