Ok - this is one wall out of three of my "Resource center."
I used to own the largest quilt shop in Chicago. Sad to admit about half
of this was purchases before I even though about the shop and several piles
were purchased from others shortly after I closed.... yeah I knew I would
run low for sure after I closed so I "stocked up.'
I also have a bakers rack full of project bags, that is fabric, patterns,
etc. that are separate from the library and are for specific projects. My
tip — mark the bags with masking tape and put various fabric members name on
the bags. Mark it even if the project is not for that individual, or ANY individual. You see, if something ever happened to you and your family walked into you "resource
center" they probably would think you the old crazy lady with all the
fabric. BUT if they find their name on projects to be done, well, now you
are the wonderfully thoughtful aunt/sister/wife/mother that was going to make quilts for them.
