Can You Find Your Art Supplies? from Professional Quilter


I have been in a “cleaning out” mode lately.

We have talked about downsizing in the next year or so. I always joke that I am on a five-year plan for decluttering, and the time just keeps getting shorter.

Looking around at my studio, I realized that it could use a healthy cleaning. So I started sorting through books, fabrics, and art supplies.

Gosh, we quilters, sewists and artists certainly do accumulate a lot. I know I will appreciate the open space in which to create.

KonMari Your Stash Part II: How to Fold & Organize from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

A couple weeks ago we posted a video on how to KonMari Your Stash and you all loved it! You can watch it by clicking here.
In that video I showed you how we fold fat eighths, fat quarters, half yards and yard cuts so that everything is uniform in size and stored vertically so you can easily see what you have, and what you need.
But you all had LOTS of questions about fabric folds I didn’t cover in the video and most of them were on the same topics, so we made a second video to answer ...
