    fabric storage boards

    Trying to get my fabric organized in my new cabinets. Key word there...trying. Is there a "best" storage board you'd recommend? Can you use those poster boards cut? Is that a good idea? The fabric organizer boards seem to be a bit pricey. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.


    P.S. Oh Barb/Bubby are you available to help? LOL!

    Are you looking to have a stiff piece to wrap fabric around?

    I saw a video a while back by Alanda Craft using the foam poster board or maybe it was the corrugated plastic cut down to the needed size.
    Just be cautious of super sharp edges.

    Not Alanda but same idea.

      I think most use Comic book boards. I got mine on Amazon, but it was so long ago I forget which one it was.

        I bought magazine backings at the local comic book store for my fabrics. Then I went to the dollar store and bought fabric covered cardboard cubes to place each fabric in . The cube box holds them all perfectly. I just turn it on it's side to see the fabrics better. Works great and was quite cheap.[ATTACH=CONFIG]160632 SAM_7740.jpgSAM_7741.jpg
        Ignore price on magazines backings , that's a Canadian price, and we always pay double to triple American costs

          I use comic book boards for fat quarters and half yards or less, but I use Styrofoam boards from the dollar store (cut down to fit my shelves) for anything larger than a yard. I just can't see a comic book board being able ot hold 2, 3, or even 5-6 yards of fabric because it's too thin and flimsy.

          This is also a quick way of knowing that I definitely have at least a yard of any fabric if it's still on a thicker board - so it cuts down time when I'm "shopping my stash" for a project.

            You may not need the expense of the boards. For yardage, I ruler fold on a 6.5 inch ruler. Then fold the fabric in half. These stack on the closet shelf.

            For fabric that is approx fat quarter size, I use a 5 inch ruler and then fold into 5 inch squares. These stack upright in a plastic pantry bin. The bins are approx 16" long and 6" wide. The bins hold charm packs and fat quarters.

              Rhonda I like your way of doing things, I will have to try that. It sounds like I could store more compact than I am already.

                This is how I fold my yardage. No expense and neat. image.jpg
