I recently discovered fabric coops where you, along with other fabricholics, can buy at wholesale rates....so I've been participating....a lot. But we live in a small older home and storage is limited. My dream is to have a wall of open shelves where my fabric (and yarn) can be displayed.
But here is another (and inexpensive) alternative...an over-the-door shoe organizer. It's easy to see and organize. In fact, since I purchase lower yardage of each fabric, I think it's easier to sort through than going through a vertical stack.
