There are numerous blog posts and sites that detail how to organize your fabric, sorting it by color, size, fabric type, or collection. I took this move as the chance to organize my fabric. I knew it would have to be refolded and sorted and decided to use Jeni of In Color Order’s method – she has a series up called the Art of Choosing, after the first few views she really dives into color so the entire series is really great. I used the second video she did for the series, on folding fabric, which turned out to take quite a while. I knew I had a lot of fabric, but refolding and organizing your stash really shows how much you actually have!
A lot of my fabric was together either for a project or still together in the bundle it was purchased in. This pic is from instagram! I’ve mentioned it once, but if you are there, my user name is tsoniki.
I packed my fabric in plastic bins, “only” two were busted up in the move, but my fabric wasn’t harmed in any way.
Batiks! I am part of a batik club at a local quilt shop in Washington. I decided to stay a part of the club, they are going to mail me my fabric each month.
After I folded I organized using her organize your stash post. I decided to keep some fabrics separate from my overall stash. The batiks being one group.
Batiks in a box! I have a lot of my fabric in boxes like this, or small plastic bins. Right now, the batiks fit, but they won’t after a couple more months – unless I use a bunch up! Better get to sewing.
