State of My Stash
I need some input. I had a house fire in January and all my sewing stuff is boxed up in my garage. I am trying to see the silver lining in this as I have been working to downsize some things and this appears to be the BIG shove to get me to accelerate the process.
I have yarn, cross stitch supplies and of course my quilting stash that the recovery company will not clean so it is left to me. Here is where I need your input. My plan is to clean all those things that I want to keep and move them into my sewing room or other storage. I was thinking I should only put things in the sewing room that I plan to make in the immediate future and then store the rest elsewhere. I live in Texas and have toyed with the idea of storing things in totes in my garage which is not air conditioned.
What experience do others have with storing fabric and yarn in a garage? Is there a compelling reason NOT to do this? What things should I take into consideration considering this stuff could be in my garage potentially for several years. Just think, I get to weigh (I am using the 4 yards per pound rule of thumb) all my stash and will have a really good idea how much I actually have. Is that a good thing or bad thing? I'll let you judge that one for yourselves.
Thanks for your ideas.
