Hi, I'm Mary and I'm a fabricholic...as well as a patternholic.
I have spent the better part of Monday and Tuesday organizing my fabric, and oh, do I need to sew and not buy. I keep my fabric in big Rubbermaid containers but somehow this system has broken down a bit and I have fabric in baskets, in cedar chests, in closets, and on dressforms. As of today, I have 4 big Rubbermaid containers and 2 smaller containers organized with stash. The categories are "spring/summer wovens, fall/winter wovens, knits, wool/fleece, knit sets (as Marcy Tilton does), lining/lingerie/blouse weight/misc." Somewhere in this house is a stash of home dec stuff for purses and hats. We'll save that for later.
Full disclosure: I found these in a basket under the bulletin board when I organized. They must have been pulled from the containers when inspiration hit, or when I hit a snag on some project.
