    What is the fabric wrapped around and stool up? Very neat, tidy and you can see it all. Storing fabric can be overwhelming!!! Love all of the spaces.

    We just moved some things around in our home and I acquired a bookshelf. The sturdy oak one I’m using for heavy quilting books and other favorite books. The less sturdy one I’m storing fabric wrapped on comic book backing cardboards. I have it organized by colors and looks so pretty on the white shelves. Many are my older fabrics and not for current projects but it was fun “finding” them again and petting them as I folded them onto the cards. I’ve cleaned out two 3 boxed that were stacked in a corner and three piles of newer fabrics that were stacked in a cupboard under some project bags. My husband and son really think it looks nice and maybe won’t give me a hassle for buying more! I’ve nearly filled the shelves but I gleaned lots of usable space elsewhere!
