Meme: Your Favorite Fabric

Allrighty people, it’s reader participation time! Your assignment: Write on your blog about your favorite contemporary fabric ever. Let’s keep it to fabrics with a printed or woven design.

Unclutterer on Fabric Stashes

Those home improvement and organization shows have gotten to me — I’ve got the decluttering bug. Unclutterer is a great resource and cheerleader. Here’s a post from last year on fabric stashes. Does it hurt you like it hurts me to read it? I will declutter every other inch of my living space, but being [...]

Show Us Your Stash: Manda of Tree Fall

Manda of Tree Fall wrote a lovely post about her fabric a while back. Did you see it? Some people cycle through fabric quickly and don’t keep much of a stash, some people have massive stashes and feel guilty about it. I was feeling pressure to be one or the other, but then Manda’s words [...]

Show Us Your Stash

“Show Us Your Stash” will be a regular feature (weekly? we’ll see how it goes for a while) showing people’s recent stash enhancements, stash storage/organization, or fabric choices for an upcoming project. Some folks are talented at combining different fabrics, or staging fabric shots, and I wanted to highlight the most inspiring images here. Occasionally [...]

Blempgorf Jenny’s Vintage Fabric

Jenny of Blempgorf has fabulous taste in vintage fabric (and she’s a talented crafter/quilter/person too!). Here’s a few from her stash that she has posted on Flickr. I think I have favorited just about everything she has added to the Vintage Fabric Flickr Pool without even realizing they’re all hers. Related posts: Daily Swatch: Roy [...]
