In our last visit I shared that I had watched the teaser for Craftsy‘s class Strip Your Stash. In the first lesson the teacher shares how she has organized her stash into coordinated groupings. I had begun doing that with my own collection during a recent quest to reorganize my studio.
If you don’t feel you have the knack for coordinating fabrics the teacher has a simple solution. Rather than studying the theory of color she suggests using photos, wrapping paper, paintings, postcards, anything that has color combinations you like as your inspiration.
Part of my goal to Smash My Stash is to use up the piles of fabrics and scraps I have accumulated. This class should help me get a great start on that goal and perhaps even make a huge dent in my supply.
