I have quite a stash, but Ramona beats me! Wish mine was as organized. Would be nice to have more room ro at least get it sorted and then put it away properly.
I really think there is something about the pharamones! My fabric makes me feel good! I love to spend time in my sewing room and re-sort my stash. I have way too many plans for projects - but I do gather for a few months before actually cutting any fabric. It's all the quilt fabrics that pull me right in - and I love novelty fabrics too. I have a whole stack of upholstery samples that make great pillows. I took photos at the quilt store today and it was packed with other ladies just as hooked on fabric as I am. Why is fabric so exciting??? This is the flannel section, with some minky fabrics too.
These are just the flannels at the shop? Wow how exciting. What selection of quilting cottons do they have? Where is this heavenly place? Drool.....
This is incredible! I thought I had a lot of fabric. I only have 1-2 yards at the most of any fabric. I always buy at least half a yard, with some fat quarters thrown in there too. Ramona - that is unbelievable! It makes me drool just looking at your stash!
How on earth would I know, LOL. I do have lots in plastic tubs in at least a couple of rooms and also out in my caravan, but it's not all fabric. I also 'collect' towels, facewashers, tea towels etc on which to embroider. It's probably a good thing I don't have a huge house!
OMG... Romona !!!! How delightful.
You have more fabric (& it's so much better laid out) than our closest fabric shop.
I love how it's mostly colour coded.
My categories are Quilt/ME, Fleece/fakefur, Felt, Poly, canvas/corduroy, specialities(velvet, satin, organza, lamae), silk, wool and HomeDec. Between me and my D! She can everything except the quilt/ME --- OK I am willing to share... she has more expensive fabrics more cotton knits. Now they have stretch Lamae! Here is a link!
Hey Ramona, I think you have a store!!!! I believe the many of us will agree. I would love to come to your place to "shop". It is amazing how much we can "collect" over the years, months, weeks and yes, even days. Just think, we are keeping wonderful and exciting rainbows in our homes. :o)
Well I don't feel so bad about mine now....looks like I have "sisters" in crime...I have about 10,000 yd of fabric (+or - a few thousand) and yes I do have it kinda seperated..flannel,,,cottons, fleece, suitings, wool, upholstery, drapery,, and KNITS!
Blinking Heck! Jan
I don't have half as much a some of you but I always have room for more.
Don't ask. Don't tell.
Hello , I have many yards of cotton fabric and yes I do separate them by colores
Well your stash beat mine...I only have 2 large bins and 1 extra large bin with mostly cotton fabric and large full of polar fleese.
forgot they are all folded neatly the same so I can turn the bin up and lay on top of each other according to color.
To be honest, I'm afraid to count. I currently have 7 large shelves overflowing and much more stacked on boxes. My sister came over one day and saw all of it and her comment was: "Okay, you win."
(I didn't know we were competing!)
Too many to count. I do have the quilt fabric separated from the clothing. The craft fabric is just blended in with everything else. Gotta share a picture. This does not included what is in bins/boxes. It's a mess right now as I have several projects going.
hey ramona, it looks so cozy, I'll drink a cup of coffee with you okay!!
Well I dont have that much, must show this picture to my husband, he now has no reason to complain. Ramona you have a most impressive fabric hord.
That´s a good idea asterixsew, my housband asks every time when I by a new fabric the same: What for?
Okay - seems like a small fabric store to me.... I am impressed - and I will show my DH too - he thinks I have a LOT (not)!
That's what I thought! there's no way I could buy bolts of fabric at our UK prices but would love to give it a try. Jan
My stash started when I knew we were going to retire in the country and the nearest shops are an 1 to 1 1/2 hrs away. I've just built on that retirement stash. Not a small store just my stash.
April22, Come on in anytime and sit and visit....bring your machine too!
Fantastic Stash! Happy Stitchin!
Wow! I am impressed! Thanks for sharing:>)
I sure would love to swap sewing rooms with you! Your collection looks fabulous and so tidy!
I HAVE to show my husband and my oldest grandson.My g-son thinks I opened a fabric shop and my husband HATES me to go near fabric when he is with me.This is impressive-Toogie
Yes, I sort the materials in different cabinets or drawers. That's more pleasant to work with, (you can not make mistake's!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, to answer my own post....I'm not sure how many hundreds of yards (yes) I have. I do separate them into different groups (or areas). I have about 12 very large tubs, excuse me, 13 very large tubs with clothing fabrics (this does not include what is shoved into a closet or dressers), I have shelves and drawers full of quilting fabrics for which I love to add to. If only my husband knew (not) just how much!!!! I have way too much but I have a love for fabrics, especially batiks and I also LOVE sales. Yeah! There I confessed....I feel ssoooooo much better. :O)
I have several bins as well but didn't get them in the picture. I don't really sew clothing these days. Just quilts and embroidery. I, too, love the batiks they have now days. They are beautiful. The ones they came out with in the beginning I didn't care for. Oh SALES!!!!! Yes, SALES!!! Love them too
Oh my god, I don't dare count, it will probably scare me to death. Just in the last month I have purchased around
60 meters, fabrics of all sorts.
Insane I know, I just can't hel myself.
No idea but I am trying to have a sort out at the monent so I might just know later
I went through and cleaned my sewing room and moved the rest of my son's stuff out. I'm still not sure how much, but I did reorganize and go through the motions!
