Country Tome by Karen Kay Buckley
“Country Tome” by Karen Kay Buckley

Dear Quilters,

Let’s hear it for tips! We all love them, and even the most seasoned of us learn a thing or two from them.

Mary Fons has started a new series-within-a-series of tips shows on Quilty. Her first two, live now on, focus on something near and dear to quilters: fabric!

In the first video, “5 Tips For Building Your Fabric Stash” Mary answers the question: what is a fabric stash? (Hint: It has nothing to do with scraps.)

New this week, Mary shares “5 Tips for Storing Your Stash and Scraps” to help you get organized!

Be sure to pick up a copy of Quilty magazine so you can read more on Mary’s tips for building your stash and keeping it under control!

Happy quilting,
