Years ago we bought used kitchen cabinets from an ad in the trader to replace the ones we have. We were painting them anyway so finish didn't matter and it was SO much cheaper than buying new to re-do our kitchen. Turned out we had many more than we needed for the kitchen. The leftovers now house my fabric stash in a corner of my living room where I use an old large computer desk for a sewing desk. I organize my stuff by stretch, non-stretch, sheers, etc, then by color or pattern. My own little corner of the world. Love it!

It's supposed to be organized?  Shocked

Right now most of the fabric is in boxes in the attic.

I call it treasure hunting since between my mother & grandmother I have inherited quite the stash.

Believe it or not, those hanging closet sweater organizers you can buy at Walmart, Target, and JCPenney are really good at organizing fabric. I Use the sweater organizers for big fabric, folded neatly, and then I made collage boxes from old shoeboxes where I store my fabric quarters and scrap fabric. I also use the hanging shoe organizers for fabric quarters and yarn. It works really well!

I got a basic but fairly large 3-shelf bookshelf for super cheap while working at an office supply store (hooray for being the first to know about 85% off clearance items!).  I just starting sewing in March, so my stash still fits on the one shelf, and I have it organized mostly by color.  Batting and interfacing, along with bulky fabric like fleece, goes on the bottom, and then I have 3 stacks on each shelf.  The stacks are organized by color, largest pieces on the bottom.  The top of the bookcase holds a small decorative metal box stuffed with fat quarters, with piles of charms in front of it, along with some finished projects that haven't quite found their way to their permanent home yet.

I like the setup when it's neat, but most of the time I just grab stuff and pull it out, which knocks over my piles, and then it just looks like I threw a ton of similar colored fabric on the shelf.   Undecided

Organize? what's that? (j/k)

My fabric is in piles in different spots of my room (more of a crafter room then a bed room now lol)

I was struggling with this question today... since I'm in the middle of setting up my sewing room as I write this.  I ended up just hanging all the fabric in a closet.  It may not look like much compared to some of the other stashes in this thread, but took me the better part of an hour just to hang it all up!

Here's about half of my stash. The other half is desperately unorganized and crammed into a closet. =/

I love this. You can see what you have and no more hunting for that special piece.
Did you build your own shelves? What size are the cubes?

Thanks for sharing
