I am in the process of making draperies for a very large window. I am trying to handle 5 1/2 yards for this one panel and it is quite cumbersome. This window is 90 inches wide and I wanted the draperies to be around 95 inches long so that window requires almost 11 yards of lining fabric as well as 11 yards of the main fabric . I found that by putting my ironing board lengthwise next to my sewing machine (or my serger) I had a good place to put all that fabric while I was sewing on it. This really worked out for me.

I supplied a picture so that you could interpret what I mean. Hope this helps someone else with this problem.

Wonderful tip! It's nice to repurpose an ironing board that's usually locked up in the closet. I'd bet two of them would also work for rotary cutting or a regular cutting board.
