We tend to have large bolts of fabric that we buy at discount stores, so I lay them flat on a few shelves in one of my bookcases. I can see what I have but it's not stacked up in a corner anymore. My nicer fabrics I hang with pant hangers in my closet.

Now that we're all moved over to our schmancy new board, would anyone else like to share their fabric storage pictures?  Smiley

I got organized this summer and here's what I came up with. (We're selling our house, so I have better plans for the new one, but this works for now.)

This is the closet in our spare bedroom, which doubles both as our guest bedroom (not that we ever have guests) and my craft room.

Top shelf:

Second shelf:

Drawer:

The drawer is my least favorite, but I ran out of shelves. It's really hard to get fabrics in and out of it. At least with the shelves, I can pull out half of the stack and then put it back.

I'm a very visual person, so it helps me to be able to see all my fabric right in front of me. Plus, it makes me happy to look at all the turquoises and pinks while I get ready in the morning.

I just redid a room in my basement.  Here is the link to the pictures http://www.flickr.com/photos/droscom/

It was a lot of work but it was worth it.

So nice! Love all that bright color in the small space.

I agree with your very efficient use of space with the different height drawer units in the different height ceiling areas too, very smart Smiley

The antique ironing board rocks!

My storage isn't where I'd like it to be. I have it mostly in some clear tupperware containers, separated by fabric types.

I just finished folding my fabrics up pretty and stacking it all on open shelves like redcleo. I used to have it all in clear plastic bins, but the bins were ugly and my boyfriend hated looking at them. (We just moved in together so we're still figuring out how to set up our space so we're both happy.) He suggested stacking it on the shelves, and I just love it. I love being able to look at the pretty colors and I love having everything right out where I can see it because then I can always see what I have!
