Before the remodel, Nancy, I would have told you your fabric was just fine since it didn't get any indirect light. When I was putting my fabric away, I did notice that much of it had faded and/or discolored - and my space is in the basement with not even very much indirect light! My suggestion would be if you really love a piece, get it into something or behind a curtain to save it. If you really don't care, it's probably fine. In all fairness, I'd had some of this fabric for 10 years or so.
Wow, Helly!! Looks like you can quilt to your hearts content!! You have a very neat and desireable looking sewing room!! Kudo's!!!!
Helly, Do you have an extra bedroom! Maybe I could move in with Edith! Live up there 6 months out of the year - do you think DH would miss me...lol I would love to be in your quiting studio and learn to Long arm quilt from Edith... can i can i can i...lol I promise to be a good quilter...quiet as a mouse...tabatha and i will get along great!
All my backing & printed fabric stash is stored in the closet. I have storage containers for themes..kids, christmas etc I also have certain containers for quilts I am collecting certain fabric for...garden quilt,xmas wall hangings, halloween, cat quilt...quilts i want to make-the pattern I want to use for these are also stored in those containers so i don't forget what i had in mind when i actually get around to starting that project.
Rack for all my ribbon on inside of closet dr.-picked this rack up for a 1.00 at the local thrift store.
All my solid color stash stored in these rubbermaid drawers.
I got a free red 32 gallon trash can from ace hardware-all my batting & filler is stored in there and it slides under my cutting table.
just thought I would share.

Great organization. I've missed "hearing" from you, too.
Love the ribbon door. Miss hearing from you. Glad to see you back. Have a great day.
Thanks for the pictures and the update, Dee. I thought maybe you were in LV. I, too, have missed your posts.
Dee and Helly,
Wish I had your stash! Thanks for the photos. I have only been quilting for 2 years and just starting to collect a stash.
Believe me when I say it doesn't take long to accumulate quite a stash. And then it just keeps multiplying somewhat like rabbits.....ROFLOL
Sharon I know this is late for your forum but I haven't had much time for computer lately.
I go to fabric stores, ask for their throw away cardboard things that they throw out after fabric is exhausted on that bolt. It helps them with recycling and helps me more as I can keep my fabrics on bolt so I know what fabrics I have and can see fabric easily for my next project. The bolts also keep your fabrics wrinkle free after washing them.
I collect the cardboard bolts and keep them lined up in closet for future use when I feel the need for more insulation for my house (fabric shopping)
I'm a Fabri-holic and I have many material witnesses to prove it
Applik, I too get the bolts from the fabric store. My DH made me a shelf unit that is just the right size for them to slip into so I can see the fabric without having to dig.
Helen, An absolutely beautiful quilt studio!! I wish mine could be that size but I'll make due with what I have. Thanks for sharing!!
How cool Helly. You live in a LQS. Wow!
