Is the Stash Monster taking over your closet, room… house? Do you feel stalled with a box full of UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) and a stash of beautiful projects, threads, canvases, fabrics, beads, and more? This course with teacher Laura Smith can help you get your stash under control. First, define your preferences so that you can decide what YOU want to keep in your stash (and what you can remove).

Three ways of clearing your stash are given, depending on how much stash you need to remove. Resources are provided for donating or selling eliminated items. You’ll learn the requirements for archival storage, ways to prevent or solve stash problems such as insects, mildew, and fading.

This course will help you develop a purchasing strategy and an uncomplicated, easy-to-maintain inventory system to keep you from buying expensive books, projects, canvases, or threads that you already own. This course will make your stash work more effectively for you!
