Whether you’ve been sewing for decades or have only just recently joined the party, you’ll have realised that sewing and collecting fabric go hand in hand! You might have a fabric stash because you like to plan ahead or maybe because plans change and projects get put on hold. Maybe it’s because you fell in love with some fabric and haven’t quite decided what it’s perfect for yet…and sometimes all you know was there was a sale and you walked in and next minute you’re on your way home with a big bag of fabric (it happens!). The fact of the matter is, if you sew, you’re going to have a fabric stash! So how do you store your fabric stash?
Do you have a meticulously organised and categorised collection? Or do you take a more relaxed approach to all? So much depends on the space you’ve got, the amount of fabric you have, and the way you interact with your fabric – whether you need to be in and out of it all the time or only once in a blue moon.
Today on the blog we’re delving into the stashes of our team! Each of us with our own way of organising and storing. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to manage your own collection you might find some useful tips and if you’re looking for reassurance that you’re not the only one with a big stash – you’ll definitely find that too!
