Smart Fabric Storage?
I was so excited when the built-in shelving was complete in my sewing studio! I couldn't wait to see all my colorful fabrics and supplies. Now after working in it for over a year, I'm having my doubts about the exposed storage of my fabrics. The room only has one window which faces the north, so it doesn't get direct sunlight. I'm still concerned about my fabrics fading and accumulating dust. I have put a list of pros and cons together and let me know what you think.
While I'm working at my table, I turn around and there is all my fabric!
I can see what I have and what colors I'm running low of at a glance.
It's so very handy to have it within an arms reach away.
I love how it adds bright and cheery color to my studio.
I really believe that it saves me time.
I don't have to clutter my work surface with piles of fabric.
Cons (only one):
I worry about fading and dust accumulation.
Lots of pros, but one important and big con. What is your opinion? I already have canvas drawers in my closet that would fit my fabrics (file style) so I can see everything without having to remove all of them to get to one fabric.
I'm so torn over this decision!
