How To: Store Fabrics
If you quilt or sew, chances are you have a fabric stash somewhere in your home that you pull out for projects. We put together a guide to organizing and storing your stash that includes shelves, drawers, closets, and tubes…
Hang fabrics on wood or fabric skirt or slack hangers. Do not use wire hangers, since they can stain the fabrics over time.
If you have a long shelf or drawer available for storing fabric, you can wrap fabrics around cardboard tubes, which avoids creasing. Attach one end of the fabric to the tube with masking tape and roll the fabric carefully around the tube. You can find cardboard tubes in various lengths at a shipping supply store or at the Container Store.
