Is there anything worse for a crafter than running out of their favourite supplies? It can happen if you don’t keep track of what fabric you used: brand, where you bought it and why not how much it costs. That’s why I was happy to come across the Stitch Stash Book you can download for free (though it requires you create an account with them).
I order mine by fiber and colour. Above is a page for blue cotton. Information I find important to record are: fiber content, place of purchase, washing temperature. I barely use the “matching thread” entry but use the notes to give as much detail as possible on the design and colourway. Now I won’t lie: it is far from up to date but I think as I reorganise my stash I’ll get to stick a sample of each one in my swatch binder.
Anyone has any tips for organising their fabric swatch?
