How Long Do You Keep Fabric?

How Long Do You Keep Fabric?

I used to go to the Jet Rag One Dollar Sale just to find great fabric that I would use someday when the time was right. Well for some of the pieces it's been almost 10 years. I wonder if I dare let it go. I have a feeling I'll need it as soon as I pass it along.

But that's probably the reason why I battle with clutter, this sense that I might need it someday. Some people say if you haven't worn an item of clothing in a year, toss it. Could the same be applied to fabric? Or other projects that are languishing in the back corner of a closet? Is there a time limit to getting a project completed?
