A Glimpse at My Fiber & Fabric Storage

IMG_7969 Some fiber storage
I haven't been very good at keeping up with Fiber Arts Fridays this summer, but a couple of weeks ago, Alpaca Farmgirl suggested sharing pictures of our fiber stashes. Above is my yarn storage, and if you click on the link to my Flickr, there are notes on the photo explaining what's what. I don't have any fancy handspun to show off, because most of my variegated wool yarn was bought on store-closing clearance. And I mainly use it for ATC borders and my rare bouts of needle-felting so one skein will last me for years!

My storage arrangement isn't pretty - lots of plastic bins because I used to work in a basement room that had damp carpets in heavy rain. Now I'm above ground-hooray! These are some of my fabric storage drawers:

If I'm actually working on a project, they don't look this neat. I have larger pieces folded or on bolts in the hall closet, but that's a photo op for another day!

Someday, my sewing area will be neat enough that I can photograph it with pride. Someday.....

Where would our fiber stashes be stored if it wasn't for plastic bins! I'm glad to see someone else whose stash looks like mine!

don't feel too bad about your storage I currently have totes down on side of the dining room! =D

hey there-I think your stash looks great-much neater than mine-which is spread all over the house. I'm too embarrassed to photograph mine--but I too have lots of plastic bins-keeps stuff nice and safe-Home Depot has them on sale right now!!!

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I should probably clarify that you're only seeing the stuff that's neatly tucked away in the closet and NOT the stuff that's spilling out all over the floor or stacked on top of the sewing table so I can't actually work on my quilts right now!! :D (And Kathi, there's still all that mixed media assemblage junk piling up in the basement -those rusty nails have to go somewhere! :o)
