My Stash is Out of Control

Grey cat in fabric stash
As part of my Organize January mission, and inspired by the stashbusting sewalong, I decided to take every piece of fabric I own off the shelf, measure it, organize it into piles, fold it back on the shelf, and make a spreadsheet quantifying my stash. Oh my goodness I have a lot of fabric. I have 254 yards of stashed fabric. Even I will admit that it’s a bit excessive. If I don’t count fabric that I have been given and don’t count fabric that I’ve had since highschool, it leaves me with 100 yards. That’s still a lot. So, I’m putting it out to the world that I’m happy to share my fabric! I’ve photographed everything and listed a description and yardage in the same order as the picture.  So, if anything catches your eye, let me know!!

  1. I’d like to say that looking at your stash made me feel better about mine, but sadly I can’t. That might make you feel better about yours though! :) I have three bins full of fabric, with nothing less than a yard and most are 3 yards or more. You have a fine collection and are no where near the problem state. Trust me.
