I always say --" To make Money.. You have to Spend Money". (this goes for any of you trying to sell your craft). And I buy good quality fabrics. To me there is no point to buy cheap quality. It makes my work look bad and if you sew- you can tell the difference in the feel of the fabric. I am sure the same is true with paint or scrapbooking or knitting etc.
So..back to me-- I have 3 spaces with fabric and crafts in it them. (yes, lucky me). Most of my fabric is in clear totes. I mean the bigger ones, 64qt/61L ones or bigger.. (realistically I have 40 totes full of fabric-in the house and more in my Loft--yes there is a loft). This is not including my closet full of fabric or the 6' of shelving full of fabric for my pet beds.
I do have to say that it is confining to me to have so much fabric. And I do find it freeing to empty a tote.
So-- Here is my goal... I want to use up 50 yards of fabric by years end. I think that might be do-able. I will keep you posted on my usage. And No- I can't promise not to buy anymore fabric. (I bought 5.5 yards today!). I try to only buy when I need it to finish a project. BUT if there is a going out of business sale- then all bets are off. I have to buy when I can for the best prices. ('cuz you never know when you will need it!).
And after all-- I am in the race--"She who dies with the Most Fabric WINS!".
Thanks in advance for your support...LOL.!
