Yeah!  I'm in! Smiley

I also keep my fabric in rubbermaid bins - mostly they are in categories of UFOs (unfinished objects) - one of my New Years Resolutions is to finish my UFOs or purge them - and who wants to purge? Smiley  We have way too many rubbermaids in this house - mostly of my craft stuff, baby clothes, baby toys and baseball cards (not mine - Hubby's).

I sent in my info - and filled up my last swap spot with this one...
I see my name on page 1 so I guess it is safe to say I made the cut Wink

I can't wait to see who my partner is and what tastes they have so that I can rummage in my closet - my fabric used to be stored nice and neatly, divided first by washed or unwashed and then by fabric type and then by color... but now it is a nightmare. I am using this swap to take every bit of fabric out of my closet and refold, wrapping it around comic book boards so that everything is the same size and put it all back in there... yeah right! With my luck my partner will have the same exact recent tastes as me and the fabric I need will be on the floor, behind the embroidery machine stand!

crafty_dame - can't wait to see these patterns you have designed up!  Okay, not that I am saying that I would be paired up with you since I can not predict the future with any accuracy at all - just in general!

mostly tops - a couple different hoodie designs, a few different tees, a dress, footless tights, that sort of thing. i like them! i haven't really posted them on here - i always make stuff for swaps and then forget to post by the time the person receives! i have a few of them on my blog, but i've even been bad about posting them there.

my fabric is in the process of being organized into rubbermaid bins. there honestly isn't any other solution! if all i had was cottons, the cardboard would work, but i have way too much jersey and fashion fabrics that wouldn't fold and display nicely. i've tried hanging it in my closet, i've tried folding it on built in shelves in my old closet - i just have too much! i've had my quilting cottons in two giant rubbermaids for years, and that's worked, so i'm putting everything else in tubs too. my plan is to organize by vintage (i have way too much vintage fabric and linens!), jersey knits, fashion fabrics, specialty fabrics and cottons.

my vinyl is the only one i'm gungho about, regardless of how messy my studio is, it's all stored on rolls to protect it.

another person from Europe here, Ireland this time, but to be honest I love swapping with people from the US and Canada, sure its expensive, but its interesting as the types of stuff you get are so different to what we have over here. And its so exciting to get stuff from all over the world.

OK I'll admit it I am a complete swap and fabric addict. My storage? A combination of wire drawer shelving units (from IKEA) they are great for fat quarters as you can see what is in them without having to dig everything out. Large lengths are in cupboards, shorter lengths in bins, sorted by colour as I tend to look for specific colours rather than fabric types. Scraps in an overflowing box under the sewing machine table. I have a LOT of fabric. (sounds very organised doesn't it, in truth it isn't, it is all over the place as it somehow never stays where it is supposed to be)

Looking forward to this swap!

It kind of makes me feel better that no one else is organized either!  All my fabric used to be in rubbermaid bins, but now I just keep my batting & interfacing in one. I bought this table from IKEA where you could select what ends you wanted for the legs, and I have this little cubby thing, which is WAY too small and overflowing.  Anything that's a fat quarter or under is in a box on a shelf.

I can't wait for the fabric part of this swap Smiley

my organizing of fabric goes as far as:
cotton fabric in one box
flannel in another box
and any licenced character print in the bottom drawer of my sewing table.

Just wanted to let you all know that 2 days ago I started the "Swap a yard of fabric" swap, and the link is here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221971.msg2394006#msg2394006

I might have to cancel it because in two days only two people have signed up, but I'd love to keep it going, so everyone that needs to purge their stash, SIGN UP!  Grin

Yes! Please sign up everyone so it isn't cancelled. I know that getting random fabric could be more fun, but this is another great way to get new stuff!
