Fabric stash organizer!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like the other reviewers, I bought these to get some control of my out of hand, unorganized explosion of fabric. They work great for large cuts of fabric, and now my fabric looks so pretty and organized on their little mini bolts!
Didn't work so well with fat quarters, though--I'll just keep those folded up with no boards.

I cut some into thirds to use for my fat quarters--works great!

What length or width of yardage works best for these mini bolts?

2 to 3 yards of woven cotton fabric (typically ~45" wide) fits pretty nicely on the boards. Anything more than that can get too bulky for the boards to support well. I keep mine in rows on bookshelves and it looks like a mini fabric store. I find that knits stored this way can start to look sloppy because the boards bend and flex, so I like to just fold and stack those. (You can fold the knits on the boards and then slip the board out and you will get nice, uniformly folded pieces). You can see pictures on how to wrap them on the boards here: http://cuttopieces.blogspot.com/2011/02/f
I like to use rubberbands or clips to hold them on the boards. I like these clips: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/199

excellent, thank you for responding so quickly. Having these mini bolts is the perfect excuse to buy yardage instead of fat quarters! :)
