How To Organize Your Fabric Stash

My fabric cabinet(s) are filled to the top of most shelves with fabric of all sizes and yardages.  I just can’t seem to walk by those fabrics in the stores that are “calling out for me!”  I love fabric sales and it never fails – I also find regular priced stuff I just can’t live […]

Fringe can be put on just about anything, from home decor items such as pillows and table coverings to clothing garment items like head scarves, jean jackets, sweaters and more.  Oh, I know you can buy some types of “fringe” by the yard, but it doesn’t come in every color under the sun, and most importantly, […]

Trims by the yard and large-motif trims are great for use in making Christmas ornaments, greeting cards and gift items.
