How to Organize Fabric in your Quilt Studio

Collecting fabric is one of the most fun parts of being a quilter! But how do we organize and store our growing stash in a way that makes it tidy, easy to access, and visually appealing?

I'm taking you inside my studio and sharing the 2 ways I organize my fabric, including yardage, smaller cuts, scraps, and bolts.

I love for my fabric to be displayed (so I can enjoy all the color!), which is why I store it in furniture, but there are lots of different ways you can organize your stash.

The key things to keep in mind are:

  • The space you have available
  • easy access
  • easy put away (so you'll keep it organized!)

Now, I'd love to hear from you! How do you organize your fabric? Leave a comment below, and let us know!

  • Thank you for sharing your organizational tips. I also love seeing my fabric when I am in my studio. Organizing by color makes finding the “right” color so much easier. I keep my thread by color also. Then I make a sample of my choices, change my mind at least twice, and then sew and embroider!

  • I have two large glass front cabinets from IKEA that I bought from a neighbor who was moving. I have carded everything larger than a yard and have them by color! Love being able to see them!

  • I have mine in file cabinets over hanging file folders. Easy to access and see. I also have a barrister’s cabinet for fat quarters.
