I use a contraption for sewing supplies that have tons of little
compartments. I also use one for tackle lures.
Then with a little help from my two nieces we separate the fibers and
make balls with them and put them in the sections.
Makes life easier.
I wrapped my shorter pieces of fibers on embrodery bobbins and store them in
a organizer from the tool department at Walmart. The skiens of fiber I
store in a bin. If you want me to take a picture of my organizer let me

I wrap a couple of yards of each one on pieces of cardboard about the same
size as the ones you buy Adornaments Fibers on. Then I hook them all
together with a big ring and hang it from a hook above my table. When I go
to a crop I just grab the ring. The rest of the skeins go in a tote in the
closet out of the way. When I run out of a color or type I just refill.
ooooh that's a great idea. I have those for embroidery floss. Why it
didn't occur to me to use it for scrapping fiber I don't know. This list is
great... well I should say the people on the list ARE great!
I cut strips of lightweight cardboard and wrapped each different one
around them. Then I have them all in baggies sorted by color. All of
these are in one big baggie. It works for me. I only have small amounts,
3 yds or less, of each anyway. All of my fibers came from swaps. Great
way to get a huge variety. Speaking of which, anybody interested in
another fiber swap? I could get something organized.

Well now that I can see a way of organizing them so that I might actually
think to use them, a fiber swap would be great! Just one question though
should we wait for the eyelet swap to be over or do it at the same time?
TRYING to ORGANIZE? I thnk someone has a few loose FIBERS somewhere!!!
I have mine stuffed in a drawer in little plastic bags that i bought at
Hobby Lobby (all different sizes). Whatever size bag they fit in, well
you get tae idea.
The ONLY thing I try and keep organized now is my PAPER!!!
(sorry Tracy - just could not resist the temptation!!) (ducking from all
the boots, sandals and flying FIBERS!)
nada for 05 (unless redoing and adding to some pages counts!)
Well you know Dave, like Jessie has been saying, if you would build us all
one or two of your storage cabinets the rest of us could get organized too!
*ouch!* Where did that darn boot come from...
M-C in her scraproom!
Organize? Who said anything about organized? If that's a new requirement
then I might as well quit now. :-) So far, all my fibers have come on a
card and in a ziploc-type bag. So for storing, they just get tossed in one
of my large plastic containers sitting on the floor. Oh it's good that I
don't have any crawling kiddos around! LOL
