Since moving back in with my parents, I basically live in a craft room that happens to have a bed in it. Keeping my fabric hoard tamed is a constant process, and yesterday and today were spent folding, organizing, and whipping the ginormous pile into shape. I finally have all my quilting cotton and flannels organized, and next will be the fat quarters. Lordy help me with that one. *sigh* I fold my yardage onto comic book backer boards as "mini bolts", and it makes for a be-yoo-te-ful fabric library. I did a quickie tute on how to do that, if you're curious:
http://www.bclef.com/2011/01/how-to-turn-your-fabric-stash-into.html

Here's the pics so far, and I can't wait to show you guys what my room looks like when it's all done and totally organized. I'll need photos to prove it once looked perfect, because it certainly won't last! LOL

The cubicles are quite deep, so I've got two "layers". The front layer was tilted down so you could see the layer behind it.

Thank you! I felt like Scrooge McDuck swimming in his money bin while I was folding and sorting. I felt so wealthy in fabric!

I love your storage, and I love your fabrics.
It must be like sleeping in a fabric store, heaven  Grin
I was just thinking today after getting some yummy fabric in the mail, possibly I am an addict and fabric is my crack.
