As a member of Ravelry (which is knitting site for those of you not into yarn hobbies), one of my favorite forum threads is called "Flash your stash" where one posts a picture of all of their yarn at once. It helps one organize their stash, and realize the full extent of it. I was wondering if we might have an equivalent thread going on this site, of lovely fabric stashes. I sure would love to see the fabrics accumulated by all of you.

I would be happy to start the ball rolling with my own picture, but I am at work right now... :(

Sorry, I don't know how to make it smaller (the stash and the photo).

I just recently had an avalanche, so here's the woven stash shelving all tidied up. Amazing what I found that I forgot I'd had.



There's also a smaller shelf of stretch fabric and several tubs of home dec and thrifted fabrics, but they're not as photogenic.

There's always room for one more cat, one more book or one more yard of fabric.

Photos? Really? Maybe. I'll have to set it out though.

Almost all my garment stash is on the metal shelving.
Most of which is hidden behind stuff I have hanging off the shelving. I do that a lot.
Some of my stash is laying on the bed in the bedroom off to the left.
It looks a lot neater in this picture than what it looks like in real life.

Lovely stashes everyone!

Here is my modest stash. I more than doubled it (from about 22yds to more than 45) just this weekend with a trip to Michael Levine's. I had to dig it all out to catalog it anyway, so why not photograph it all!



While trying to pack it all away after taking the photo, I came to the conclusion that I have no room for this modest stash, let alone a larger one...

ETA: the wovens are on the top, the knits are on the bottom
