How Big is YOUR stash??! Question of the week

A few weeks ago I was talking with Trisch, the sweet lady at my local sewing center, where I hang out a lot. She was telling me about the garage sale she had last spring. She needed to make space in her sewing room, and garage. Well, after she had gone through everything she wound up with 60 bags of fabric for her sale! Boy, am I sorry I missed that garage sale!

The question of the week is, how big is your stash? Small, big, on the moderate side, or absolutely enormous? How old is some of this fabric? I have some pieces that are over 20 years old and, most likely, will never part with them. Do you, like me, have a co-dependant relationship with your fabric? I must face the fact that I will probably never live long enough to use it all.

Well, how big is your stash?? We'd love to know!

Thanks so much for posting. Just click the comments button below.


  1. I don't think of it as a stash, it's more like inventory. Does that answer your question?

  2. Cherie, if you have "inventory, I think you have a pretty big stash!

  3. I've always heard that the one that has the most fabric dies happy. :-)

  4. Well Barb, my "stash" is almost scary I have so much. Sometimes I look at it and wonder if I will use all of it! But down the road I usually come up with some creative idea for that piece of fabric I thought I made a mistake in buying :) If it's pink roses, it never lasts too long LOL

  5. I have amassed a nice size stash, however, when I see what other people have I realize that mine is not so big after all. We are almost to retirement and I know that buying fabric after that will be harder. I just lack some good way of storing mine. I need to rearrange some closets so that I can have a closet that really reflects my sewing.

  6. I have little bit problem about "stash" now its clear for me.
