Ohmygosh, I’m in a Book! Plus, Giveaway: Fat Quarters by Lark Crafts Project Kit!

Fat Quarters - Lark Crafts - Giveaway!

HOLY CRAP, GUYS – LOOKIT! I’M IN A BOOK!!!

Fat Quarters - Lark Crafts - Giveaway!

Out in the world, in bookstores and everything, is a book with my name in it. DUDE. That’s amazing. I know for a lot of my fellow peeps in this book, it’s old hat, but this is my first contribution ever and I’m so, so excited!

This lovely book is Lark Crafts“Fat Quarters: Small Fabrics, More Than 50 Big Ideas” — a book to celebrate those little pieces of quilting fabric we just can’t seem to resist. Yummmm, fabric pretties! There’s a ton of wonderful projects in this book, all designed to make great use of your FQ stash, by some seriously badass crafters: my lovely friends Carina and Nicole, the talented
Kaye Prince from Miss Print, Amy Friend from During Quiet Time, Ruth Singer – and so many more. Tons of loveliness!

Fat Quarters - Lark Crafts - Giveaway!

My project is a mini-quilt – or table setting / large mug rug – with a row of sweet little appliquéd hearts and contrast hand-stitching. It uses just three fat quarters, is infinitely customizable (a little extra embroidery, anyone?! That would be so cute!), and is a perfect showcase project for those absolute favorite fabrics hoarded in your stash.

“Fat Quarters” is out today in the States and on May 7th in the UK (available to pre-order via Amazon.co.uk) – but available right here on my little blog today as just one part of my spectacular Holy-Crap-I’m-in-a-Book-Giveaway!

Fat Quarters - Lark Crafts - Giveaway!

Lark Crafts was kind enough to offer up a copy of “Fat Quarters”, which I’ve paired with a kit to make my project, for one lucky winner! That means everything above: a copy of “Fat Quarters”, three designer fat quarters*, a piece of Wonder Under fusible web, and three balls of DMC Perle Cotton – you only need two colors of perle cotton for this project, but I chose fabrics that will work well no matter how you arrange them, so I’ve included threads that do the same. You’ll only need sewing thread and a scrap of batting to make my “All My Heart Mini-Quilt”!

This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere, because that’s how I roll, and will be chosen by random number generator. No hoops for extra entries, just leave one comment answering the following:

How big is your fabric stash – no, really?? It’s ok, we’re all friends here, we won’t tell anyone. And if not fabric, what other craft material do you stash most? What item in your stash can you not bear to use or part with?

That’s it! I’ll close the giveaway on March 27th (end of next week) and announce a winner over that weekend – go go go!

*Fabrics from: Winter Wonderland by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda, Bloomsbury Park for Liberty Lifestyle, and Shape of Spring by Eloise Renouf for Cloud9 Fabrics.

    First: OMG that is the coolest!! Congratulations!! Being in a book is the most fun & will never get old as I’m sure you will be in many, many more :)

    Second: LOL omg I have an Ikea Expedit 4×4 fully filled with fabric & three large tubs for spillover!! I freely admit I have a problem and will NOT be seeking treatment :-D

    Congratulations – the first publication of many I’m sure. My stash fits behind the sofa, but only because I keep moving the sofa away from the wall!

    Congratulations on being published in the book! I’m not sure how to gauge my stash. I’m sure it’s on the smaller size compared to others. I keep it mostly in a three drawer antique washstand. Though, my 1930s repros have currently migrated out into a pile on the floor. :(

    Its awesome to be published in a book! Congratulations, it must be so exciting! My husband thinks my stash is enormous but he’s wrong ;). I have a lot of scraps of different types of fabric from a dress making friend of mine and I’m slowly building up my cottons.

    I’ve only been sewing/quilting for a year and my stash seems pretty big to me! I have enough here for at least 10 quilts or more!
    I’d better get busy so I don’t outlive my stash!

  6. June
    March 17, 2015 at 15:33 (2 years ago)

    What a fun book. Congrats on the pattern. My stash isn’t too large but I have enough to make at least 30 quilts.

    I am a newbie in the quilting world and have a modest stash of a medium sized box. I would love to win this prize!
    Thanks!

    March 17, 2015 at 17:08 (2 years ago)

    I have a pretty big stash since I have been quilting since 1981. I have collected mostly fat quarters so seem to make more scrappy quilts than anything else.

  9. Jo
    March 17, 2015 at 17:10 (2 years ago)

    I don’t have that much – three medium sized storage boxes and a bin bag on the floor. My fabric stash is based on my Grannie’s rag bag which I inherited – basically offcuts from clothes alterations and bits I’ve picked up here and there over the years. I also have a paper crafting stash and a jewellery making stash, oh – and a button collection and a ribbon one too… I do have favourite pieces of fabric, card, ribbon and beads that I can’t bring myself to use – is that normal? Congratulations on the book!

    March 17, 2015 at 18:13 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash is not very big compared to most quilters, but I do have a huge stash of scrapbooking and knitting supplies that I have not touched in over 2 years. I just cannot bear to part with it all!

  11. Robin Cassady-cain
    March 17, 2015 at 18:26 (2 years ago)

    I have quite a tiny stash, only about 30 FQ, but I’m working on it!! My favourite is currently one of the indelible fabrics! Congrats Julie! Xx

  12. Mad
    March 17, 2015 at 18:58 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations on being published! I have 3 giant laundry bags of fabric and several large boxes of smaller pieces. I can never bring myself to use my expensive handmade felt.

    Recently I set out to wash and refold all my 2 yds or less fabric stash. I have them arranged by color and I was shocked when I finished just the brown stack (not my fave by far) and found that it contained 20 yards! Between inheirited fabric and gifted fabric and bought fabric, I estimate about 400 yards. Please don’t tell my husband!!

  14. Julie S
    March 17, 2015 at 19:31 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash fills a large chest with a small pile on top. I currently have enough for 15 planned quilts (sans batting – I buy that per project). My yarn stash is larger, but not by much!

  15. Sarah J.
    March 17, 2015 at 19:41 (2 years ago)

    Congrats- this book looks so fun and I would love to make up your projects as placemats! And my stash… I wouldn’t consider it excessive- it is mostly contained in an antique dresser (4 drawers about 5 feet wide– though that sounds excessive I promise it isn’t!).

  16. Karen
    March 17, 2015 at 19:56 (2 years ago)

    I’m so super-duper proud of you! In a book!! Yaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!
    As for my fabric stash… Honestly, I’ve lost track. I am disgracefully untidy at the moment and so fabric is living in many, many places. Including random piles in my lounge. I want to put it all in one place, but I’m scared!! xxxxx

  17. Andrée
    March 17, 2015 at 19:57 (2 years ago)

    This is so totally cool! Congrats Julie!
    My stash, well it’s in about 6 pretty big bins (and a few bags) – mostly at the bottom of my husband’s closet. You can imagine the types of comments I get!

  18. Rachel
    March 17, 2015 at 20:08 (2 years ago)

    Congrats on the book! Your mini is adorable. How large is my stash…? Does “bigger than it used to be, but probably not as big as it’s going to get” count? ;) I’d say it’s probably somewhere around 150 yards – counting yardage, half yards, and fat quarters. Thanks for the chance to grow it a little further. :)

  19. Kathy W
    March 17, 2015 at 20:11 (2 years ago)

    Which stash would that be — quilting fabric? beads? card-making supplies? Yeah, I’m waaaaaay over the limit on all of them. Congrats on your exciting debut!

  20. Kay Eyles
    March 17, 2015 at 20:42 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations!! I can’t imagine how happy you are now, I do hope you have a celebration yourself too which may involve ezra fabric shopping for you. My stash isn’t that huge as I have to store all of my sewing things under the bed. I also do cross stitch and have more charts than I will ever possibly be able to stitch, the good thing is that they don’t take up much room. Thank you for great giveaway. x

    March 17, 2015 at 20:58 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations on the book! That’s fantastic.
    My fabric stash isn’t too big – just three 15-inch baskets in my Ikea shelf unit. But I’ve got three more in yarn. And another of embroidery supplies. And a couple more with paper-crafting stuff. Oh, and the craft books. A little bit of everything adds up to quite a lot! When we moved into our current home, our moving helpers had some observations about the ratio of boxes labelled “craft room” to boxes labelled… anything else!

  22. Katy M
    March 17, 2015 at 21:01 (2 years ago)

    Currently an airing cupboard, a chest of drawers and a double wardrobe full…and that’s just the fabric! But I still never seem to have what I need! Congrats on the book too – I love your project :)

  23. Sandy K
    March 17, 2015 at 21:24 (2 years ago)

    Congrats on being in the book. My stash isn’t to big, probably could fit in a large plastic tub.

  24. Vicki H
    March 17, 2015 at 21:28 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations!! How great to be published in a book. I have a cupboard with double doors and a small dresser full of my stash fabrics. And then I have six plastic shoe boxes with scraps of strips and squares.

  25. Dot H
    March 17, 2015 at 21:29 (2 years ago)

    I’m fairly new to quilting so my stash can fit into a grocery bag. Congrats on the book.

  26. Jenny
    March 17, 2015 at 21:45 (2 years ago)

    That is exciting to see yourself – name and project – in print!!! well done!! I have a fabric stash in a lovely old huon pine glass doored dresser in my (and my husband’s) bedroom! I need to use some before purchasing anymore! The bottom of the dresser contains my yarn and crotchet hooks and knitting needles plus some cushion inserts and batting for a few quilts – plus a bag of toys for child quiet time!!

  27. Tammy L
    March 17, 2015 at 21:57 (2 years ago)

    I do have some stash… But not near as much as most I see on blogs and such…. I also have a lot of serger spools of thread and machine embroidery spools….I hope to one day get a huge collection of perle and embroidery flosses as I tend to mostly do hand stitchery these days over machine . CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have made it in the world of sewing if you have been published. It is the beginning of much more to come I am sure.Thank you for the chance to celebrate by entering .

  29. Olivia S
    March 17, 2015 at 22:56 (2 years ago)

    My stash is not as big as I would like it to be! ;) I have about three boxes full of fabric and a bag full of my scraps.

  30. Patti
    March 17, 2015 at 23:17 (2 years ago)

    WooHoo! Congrats on getting published! Stash? What stash? Oh, you mean all those milk crates and cute cloth bins? No worries, I have a closet or two filled in the basement too!

  31. Jessica P.
    March 17, 2015 at 23:38 (2 years ago)

    What a lovely mini quilt! I love the stitching around the hearts. Congrats on being in a book. That is awesome! My fabric stash is pretty small. I mostly have small scraps from other projects. I would love to build a stash though. Thanks for the chance to win.

  32. Pam S
    March 18, 2015 at 00:44 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations on being in the book! And you certainly deserve it. Your project is delightful. My fabric stash fills 16 shoeboxes. It includes a few Liberty scraps that a fellow quilter gave me, and those I’ll never part with those! But I may make them into a pincushion. I also stash embroidery supplies. Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. Emily C
    March 18, 2015 at 01:25 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations! That is so exciting. I would be SO happy! My stash is rather small if compared to others. It fills 3 of the pretzel snack tubs (the plastic ones).

  34. Kathy E.
    March 18, 2015 at 01:45 (2 years ago)

    Holy crap is right! I’d be jumping up and down if I had something published in a book!
    My fabric stash is bigger than I want it to be, but I’m sure much smaller than lots of folks. It fills about 1/3 of a double closet. I have one piece of fabric that I know I’ll probably never use. It’s a Valentine fabric left over from a dress my mom made me when I was in 2nd grade (over 40 years ago). I loved that dress! Maybe when I have a grand-daughter (someday, hopefully) I will make something for her with it. Until then, it just gives makes me happy.

  35. Veronika
    March 18, 2015 at 01:57 (2 years ago)

    Congrats!! I love your project! How exciting!! I’ve only been collecting fabric for a year but I already have tons! Ahhhh but I’m obsessed so it’s a good thing. I’m not quite sure how to measure it!

  36. Judy Allen
    March 18, 2015 at 02:02 (2 years ago)

    My stash is kind of spread over my basement “studio.” A few bins, two bureaus, shelf under my work table and some other places. I also have a stash of card stock, paint brushes, glues, paints, watercolor paper, blank canvases. Promise you won’t tell, please. I rarely invite anyone down there.

    March 18, 2015 at 03:32 (2 years ago)

    congratulations! very cool and a super sweet project that you contributed. :) this seems like such a cute little book. thank you for the chance to win it, along with the other goodies!

    i would say my stash (mainly fabrics, but i also hoard embroidery threads of different types and just started playing with weaving – so my yarn stash is growing too!) is probably good sized. hehehe… it wouldn’t be so bad, but i am not sewing things quick enough to “justify” the amount of fabric i own. i have learned you can get a lot out of a 1/2 yard of fabric and definitely have downsized my purchasing to 1/2 yards and fat quarters more recently.

    i have a hard time using some of my favorite fabrics(some anna maria horner, denyse schmidt, heather ross, and pat bravo), which is silly since if i use them, i will get to see them instead of them being neatly folded up. i also have a small amount of lovely hand-dyed threads that i haven’t used yet, but am very close to having convinced myself that it is ok to use them. :)

  38. Rose Santuci-Sofranko
    March 18, 2015 at 04:53 (2 years ago)

    I don’t have my own stash….but my (sweet late) mom’s is downstairs in multiple bags! God bless.

  39. Karen
    March 18, 2015 at 05:16 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations! I’ve managed to keep my stash under pretty good control. I try to only buy fabric when I have a project in mind. I like minis and scrappy quilts so I will buy fat quarters when I find ones I like on sale.

  40. Jen B
    March 18, 2015 at 07:41 (2 years ago)

    My stash isn’t very big, it fits in 2 drawers in a dresser plus a bolt with 5 meters of white solid on it.

  41. Claire Ross
    March 18, 2015 at 07:51 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations and your mini quilt submission to the book is fab. I have a small fabric stash as I am quite new to sewing, however it is growing rapidly!

  42. Fiona
    March 18, 2015 at 12:00 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash has now moved to the garage as I just couldn’t stuff anymore in. The bags gradually got bigger and zips burst. Congrats on the book xx

  43. Linda Pawlak
    March 18, 2015 at 12:01 (2 years ago)

    My stash would be considered about medium sized. Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway!

  44. Louise
    March 18, 2015 at 12:19 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash is growing but isn’t too big, I am a newer quilter. That said I have enough fabric to make a couple of quilts in the future. I buy small cuts when I like a fabric because I like the scrappy look.

  45. wendy
    March 18, 2015 at 13:27 (2 years ago)

    congratulations on being published! I’m not sure how to quantify my stash, I think it’s probably a medium-sized stash! I also stash yarn, embroidery threads and charts, paper craft stuff and beads. Oh and wool roving, wire, polymer clay… OK, OK, I stash everything!

  46. Greta
    March 18, 2015 at 13:32 (2 years ago)

    Hard to measure exactly, but most of my stash is smaller pieces. I also stash yarn! Thanks for a chance to win.

  47. Janie
    March 18, 2015 at 13:48 (2 years ago)

    Why wouldn’t you be in a publication? Your mini is beautiful. I have a nice sized fabric stash. I have been quilting for over 20 years. Thank you for the giveaway.

  48. jmniffer
    March 18, 2015 at 14:03 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations on being published! That is very cool. My stash is growing every month. I have several shelves full of fat quarters and a dozen quilt kits. Plenty, but I continue to add little by little. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  49. Joy Beardsley
    March 18, 2015 at 15:34 (2 years ago)

    Yay and congratulations on being in an actual book! Fantastic news. My stash of fabric is modest by some standards but there’s definitely an attic cupboard full. The stash I’ll never part with is some baby clothes my grandma made for me – she was a dressmaker who died when I was 6. When I’m brave enough I’m going to turn them into a quilt in memory of her! Many thanks for the giveaway :0)

  50. Nancy Hilderbrand
    March 18, 2015 at 17:19 (2 years ago)

    I have a few items in my stash but I am new at quilting and need to build up

  51. Zoe
    March 18, 2015 at 18:35 (2 years ago)

    My stash is currently a “manageable” size. It takes up 2 4′ tall rolling drawer things. Granted, the drawers are completely stuffed to the point that I can barely open/close them, BUT it is all contained in those two things! :)

  52. Rebecca Bell
    March 18, 2015 at 21:43 (2 years ago)

    So fantastic that you’ve been published in a book Julie and rightly so, your mini is just gorgeous! Love. love, love the hand-stitched detail. Let’s not talk about the size of my fabric stash… rather embarrassingly it fits into one tiny 12″sq cupboard space. Without a doubt I would love to own more but those damn children of mine always seem to need shoes, clothes etc. How inconsiderate of them! :)

  53. Jennifer
    March 19, 2015 at 01:29 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations! I’ve only just come across your blog but I’m very happy for you. It’s well-deserved, your work is beautiful. My fabric stash is not huge, but it’s enough for me. It takes up three of my desk drawers, but they are pretty stuffed. :)

  54. SoozeM
    March 19, 2015 at 01:56 (2 years ago)

    Oooh congrats on being published, how exciting! I would say my stash is quite large when compared to Australian standards, but average when compared to US standards. Small enough to know exactly what I have and where it is, but large enough that I usually have just the right fabric to go with whatever I am working on at the time :)

  55. Lori Morton
    March 19, 2015 at 02:13 (2 years ago)

    OMG would love this book! My stash is probably “Medium” to mast “Stashers”!!!! lol

  56. Alexis
    March 19, 2015 at 02:51 (2 years ago)

    I stash yarn and fibre…..signifigantly. My fabric stash is pretty small, comparatively (it all fits on a shelf).

  57. Darlene @ QuiltShopGal.com
    March 19, 2015 at 05:00 (2 years ago)

    My stash totally lacks threads for hand embroidery, which I’m wanting to resolve (I need to build a stash as I have my first projects planned). I have found some good sales on quilting thread and an ok collection of blenders that I also found on sale. I try to stock up on sale and buy non-sale items as I’m doing a specific project.

    congratulations !!!!

    And while my fabric stash feels ridiculous, I do only buy 1/8 yard cuts because it’s perfect for EPP, so it’s really not THAT bad.

  59. Michele Timms
    March 19, 2015 at 12:10 (2 years ago)

    Wow!! That is awesome to be published in a book!!! Congratulations!!! The funny thing about my fabric stash is that it is made up of mostly FQs because I joined a monthly club a few years ago. It was just a temporary thing but I simply can’t stop it now!! My husband says my “fabric thing” is getting out of hand, but seriously…. What does he know?! Lol I have a space that is 4′ x 5′ where I store my fabric in plastic bins. That is hardly anything to brag about… Now is it?

  60. Nancy Hilderbrand
    March 19, 2015 at 16:13 (2 years ago)

    I am a fairly new quilter so I don’t have very much stash. I would like to have more but it is quite expensive to get started.

  61. Kathy Davis
    March 19, 2015 at 16:34 (2 years ago)

    I really don’t have a very big stash because my sewing room is very small, but I do also stash away yarn/

  62. auschick in va
    March 19, 2015 at 17:57 (2 years ago)

    I have 2 book cases worth… way too much — sadly, it means I have not had time to use it!

  63. Sarah
    March 19, 2015 at 18:57 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations! I have 1 shelf of fabric scraps.

  64. Kristy
    March 19, 2015 at 21:56 (2 years ago)

    How exciting for you!!! Congrats, looks like a darling book to sew from! As for stash…..I certainly love my fabric, but the thing I most often struggle to part with are my buttons. Has to be the “perfect” project to convince me to cave in! ;) Thanks!

  65. debbie
    March 20, 2015 at 02:00 (2 years ago)

    Wow. Congrats on the book. It looks fabulous. I have only been quilting maybe 2 years now but I’ve sewn forever so it is embarrassing how much I have but I don’t drink, swear or smoke so my addiction could be something worse. At least that is what I tell myself. Thanks for the giveaway.

  66. Sherry
    March 20, 2015 at 02:41 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations on being in the book and your project is a great one and looks like it would be fun to make. My fabric stash fills a large bookcase with a few extra tubs and baskets in my sewing room.

  67. Jess Keepsake
    March 20, 2015 at 05:46 (2 years ago)

    My stash is so big I opened a store. Not kidding. I have over 1,000 fat quarters and about 500 bolts. Need to dwindle down.

  68. Paula
    March 20, 2015 at 15:47 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash is quite small. I recently bought enough fabric to make a(nother) quilt for my bed and I have many scraps left over from past projects but when I want to start a new project I have to buy fabric for it.
    Congratulations on being in the book; your mini-quilt is fab.

    March 20, 2015 at 23:24 (2 years ago)

    Congrats, Julie! That’s super exciting :)
    My stash is a decent size, and the majority of it is fabric. Finally consolidated all my prints into one bookcase and was surprised there wasn’t room for my solids!

  71. anne
    March 21, 2015 at 03:01 (2 years ago)

    Woohoo! That’s so exciting! And, it’s a gorgeous project!!! Congrats!

    My fabric stash has taken over my little storage closet. I could probably keep making things for 3 years without buying a scrap! It’s kind of pathetic … and only one of my collections! I have craft stuff, pens and pencils, stationary, felt, cross stitch patterns, etc. I collect but barely have enough time to get anything done, ha ha.

  72. Fabienne
    March 21, 2015 at 17:44 (2 years ago)

    What a lovely little quilt! I’m new to quilting so my stash is small but I have designed my sewing room with plenty of space for growth ;-)
    My embroidery and cross-stitch threads are my guilty pleasure, so many shades, so many possibilities.

  73. Margaret Schindler
    March 22, 2015 at 02:53 (2 years ago)

    My fabric stash is small but I love each and every piece. I have six cubicles with fabric and some small totes with fat quarters

  74. Chris
    March 22, 2015 at 05:07 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations! I have a closet full of fabric and then under my table. That is a lot of fabric. There are all kinds of tools I can’t live without, rotary cutter, rulers, seam ripper, etc.

  75. Michelle Olsen
    March 22, 2015 at 18:27 (2 years ago)

    Congratulations, that is so exciting! My stash would fit in two medium size storage totes. I’ve been quilting for about 3.5 years, so I think that’s pretty good!

  76. Joyce Carter

    Congratulations! How exciting it must be to get published in a book.
    I have a big closet in my sewing room that I converted by adding shelves to hold my fabric. There are four shelves and each one is filled to the brim with fabric. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

    Love the new book and your project! My stash? It isn’t big enough, I assure you! I have two shelves in a closet with bi-fold doors.

    Congratulations in being in a book! All of my fabrics fit in my night stand drawers(3), so not that many, but my problem is I can never keep them in the drawers so I have fabric strewn about in every room, you could say it’s the way I decorate!

    Congratulations! My stash is of a medium size I would say. I thought it was big until I saw some other quilter’s stashes.

    My stash fits in 2 storage bins. I am excited about the chance to win this book…it looks like what I need to use up my stash!!! Thank you.

    My stash takes up a guest room and what used to be a dining room. So does that make it mid-size, which seems to be what everyone considers theirs to be? I’ve been sewing from my stash almost exclusively this year, and plan to keep on doing so, so I should start to make a dent…

    My stash is huge-not bragging but I have been stashing and sewing for a l-o-n-g time. My other weakness is beads. The item that I don’t use a lot but cannot bear to part with is my mother’s stash of embroidery floss and paint, she must have had every color made. Congrats for being published and I love your mini quilt-thanks for the chance to win your fabulous giveaway!

    How big is my stash? How high can you count? I’ve been sewing, quilting and crafting for a long time and done most things with fabric, paper, thread etc. at least once and have all the tools, fabrics, gizmos and gadgets to prove it. Could not do without my sewing machine, my rotary cutting set and my Gingher snips.

    What a lovely project! Congratulations on getting it in print. My stash is a few boxes. Big enough that I always have something to stitch.

    I’d guess that I have about 200 fat quarters & 100 yds of fabric in my stash. Enough so that I can go there to “shop” when I start something new! Congrats on your book adventure.

    I have more stash than I probably should but not as big as I’d like lol. 3 large bags full was all I could keep when we moved last year. So that’s what I have! Beautiful projects in this book! Congrats on getting published and thanks for sharing!

    My stash is big enough that I am able to give fabric away on a regular basis. There’s always someone who needs some, and frankly others seem to love the fabric that falls into the category of What Was I Thinking When I Bought That!?!

    My fabric stash is confined to one 6’x2′ shelf in my work space. It isnt full yet, but I’m sure to remedy that as I can’t seem to keep my hands out of the remnant bin! I also have a 5′ yarn tower

    I gained a huge stash of knits last year. I’m saving a lovely chiffon for a special project!

    I’m still a beginner, so my fabric stash is small but growing; I’m sure over time it will begin to rival my yarn stash … which has its own dedicated closet.

    I don’t think my fabric stash is that bad compared to most, it fits in a big cupboard. Ha! Now my thread stash however, lady, I could set up my own shop. Buttons I also have many of those with little need for them, so pretty. Well done dear, ace project! X

    Congratulations Thats a awesome milestone.,I have a good stash,but what I have a hard time parting with is my lace and ribbon,I salvage to extremes.

    Congrats on the book! How exciting. My fabric stash isn’t nearly as big as most in my guild but it does take up a large shelf in my closet and another in my room. Right now I’m in a dilemma on what to do with it. I lost my sewing room when I moved and it’s taking over my bedroom. I think it’s time to reorganize.

    I have 3 relatively large plastic storage containers full of fabric for quilting and several quilts underway. I tend to jump around to different projects according to my mood. I have tote bags here and there full of yarn for crochet projects and I have 2 pieces of pottery I’m painting.

    Mine is fairly contained as I’ve just moved country! About one box worth.
