Fabric stash organizing

I finally sorted out and put away some new fabric purchases. I like to wash/dry/iron all my fabrics before I put them away. I’m not a neat freak or anything like that I just like to know exactly what I am dealing with when I start working on a project. Sewers seem to be divided between those that prewash fabrics before using them and those that don’t.

I had some batiks last year that took MANY washings and color catcher sheets before the dye stopped running. I don’t know if it was a bad batch, but it was terrible. I wash all my new fabrics with color catcher sheets just in case any dye comes out and then dry them. I want to get any dye bleeding or shrinking out of the way before I start a project. I also dislike the feel of the sizing used on fabrics during manufacturing.

I had to rearrange part of my fabric stash to make room for the new additions. I think everything looks nice and organized now.
