Fabric Shopping = Major Organization Job

I've recently been on a shopping trip to buy some new

fabrics at my favorite fabric shop, Sirs.


Of course, with the purchase of new fabrics,

the old ones first need to put into order...


...then, the new ones. Since I'm dealing with fairly large pieces of fabric, I have to move my folding process to the dining room table, where I have a little more space than in my sewing room.

I refold everything I buy so it's easier to cut once I start sewing projects. Along with all this reorganizing and refolding, new fabric also means making new swatch cards for my sales reps and updating my web page with pictures of the new fabrics. Whew! Now I'm ready to start sewing!
