But did you see the most recent JCS? Martha Beth Lewis, the woman I love to hate, has an article--two parts, of course!--on stash storage. This month focuses on threads and fabric. (Next we turn to charts, tools, and kits.) So does she do her usual bloated best to inflate the section on fabric storage that I really want to know about? No. No, of course not.
She writes about two hundred words that amount to:
- Try not to fold it
- Iron it before you put it away
- Sort it the way you browse it
- Sew a piece of paper with thread count and color name on the fabric
- Put it under the bed
Gee thanks. Sort it the way you browse it. I would have never thought of organizing things by thinking about how I use them. Two hundred words! There's a whole sidebar on how to wind a bobbin--I kid you not. Over two pages dedicated to storing floss. But the best she can do on fabric storage is to tell me to put it under the bed? Oh for the love of Christ. Somebody blow up Hoffman Headquarters.
