Build a Greener Craft Fabric Stash

Waste Not Remnant StashCrafters and quilters usually build up a fabric stash over many years of collecting.  A fabric stash is usually filled with fabrics they couldn’t resist and knew someday they’d find the perfect project for.  I think most crafters and quilters would be frightened to be stash-less.  A fabric stash can serve as inspiration and always provides security knowing there is a project hiding in there somewhere.

Well, what to do if you have decided to craft green and have no stash?  Start building one.  

One of the fastest and most affordable ways to build a stash is by buying small cuts of fabrics you love.  There are so many eco-friendly fabric sources that sell fabric mix packs and remnant bags perfect for starting a new stash.  Here is a round-up of my favorite sources for eco-friendly fabric scraps and remnants.Linen Remnants
