I think it's hard to judge the size of my fabric shelves by looking at the pictures, but my best estimate is that it's probably around eight feet tall. It's quite a bit taller than Paul when he's next to it. I think my fabric sale shopping is finally catching up with me. I think I have enough for the next hundred or so snoods and headcovering I have planned. At least that's what I'll tell myself until the next time I run across cotton fabric that's like 80% off and I just can't walk past it...
There is some method to the madness. Tulle and giant rolls of cotton at the top. Flannel, felt, fleece and more cotton on the second shelf. Most frequently used fabrics on the third shelf (lots of lace and silk and linen, with a rather large row of cotton behind it). More felt and cotton on the next row. And lastly velvets and brocades on the bottom row.
The yarn stash is barely visible at the right edge of the picture.
I have a lot of work to do if I'm ever going to sew my way through this pile of fabric!
