We’ve been using the Expedit bookcases from Ikea for our fabric storage. A few months ago I spent the afternoon banging together these boxes to hold all our fabric. Sarai had the idea to cut little swatches of all the fabrics in each box and safety pin them to the outside of each container. It makes it easy to find the right fabrics that way.
In our new studio, we’re thinking of laying the bookcases so that their long sides are down to block off a dedicated sewing space. We’ll have extra space on top of the bookcases for storage bins. I’ve looked online at a bunch of different options and thought it’d be fun to share them with you, and also hear about what you use for your fabric storage. What have you found works for you? Do you like to see your fabric or keep it hidden? Do you have a particular way you organize it all?
