We have loved working with Lisa over the years and seeing her publish her first crafting book is simply amazing.

Raise your hand if you’ve got a closet full of craft supplies! Yes, we are right there with you all – and so is this book. Learn how to transform all of your craft closet treasures into gifts, home decor, and more right alongside Lisa Fulmer. Try new techniques and experiment with crafting styles you’ve never tried before. We loved turning each page in the this book and discovering new and exciting crafts on each page. Plus, she teaches us all how to organize our stash right from the start and we couldn’t think of a better way to clear our minds and get ready to craft.

  4. Roxanne - Roxie says

    My craft stash consists of: various cardboard tissue boxes with prints, yarn scraps, various colored envelopes received in the mail from non-profits, clear bags from magazines ( repurposed bags to put crochet scarves & hats in ) dried flowers being pressed, old calendars of beautiful photos, Coffeemate & Emerald Nuts plastic containers, Marie’s Cole Slaw jars, etc …. ~*~

  5. Kris says

    I have so much craft stash I don’t think I’ll ever use it all in my lifetime but I keep buying and collecting so I have it “on hand” for my next project! I love that I get to enjoy crafting with my grandkids these days!

  6. Donna says

    In my craft stash, I have: thousands of beads, jewelry findings, fabric, leather, lace, ribbon, felt, aluminum cans, jars, paint, scrapbook paper, tissue paper, wire, buttons, and many other things that I’m sure I have forgotten.

  7. Sue Marie says

    Everything from A to Z (alpaca yarn to Zippers). I have buttons & beads & bias tape, calico & cotton carpet warp, darning cotton & dyes & denim, elastic & embroidery thread, felt & fleece & findings for jewelry, gingham & glue & glitter, handles for purses, handspun yarn & handmade paper & handwoven fabric, interfacing, jute & jewelry wire, kite string & key rings, leather & linen & lace, macrame cord & muslin, netting & novelty yarns, organdy, papermaking supplies & purse handles, quilt squares in the UFO pile, ribbon & reeds & rags for rag rugs, sequins & silk scarves for dyeing, thread & teddy bear joints, UFOs & ultrasuede, velvet and variegated yarn, wool yarn and wool to be spun or felted, Xerox sheets for paper piecing, yarn for weaving/crocheting/knitting/embellishing. I started an Excel spreadsheet inventory of my stash – it helped me reduce my shopping trips because I included the “hiding place” for the supplies. I estimate it will take 12-14 years 35-40 hours a week quilting, weaving, spinning, crocheting, beading, sewing, basketry, and papermaking to use up my stash if I don’t add to it or take up another craft (I’ve been looking into handmade books – I think I already have most of the supplies but may need a new tool or 2).

  8. DeeAnn S says

    I have lots of beads, flowers, buttons, wads of ribbons and yarns, fabric strips, etc. I’m always looking for new ideas and techniques. thanks.

  9. jennifer says

    We’ve moved so my stash had to be thinned out but it’s slowly growing again with flowers, buttons, beads and my children have all of their beads, toilet paper rolls, wrapping paper.

  10. Tammy O says

    Some cloth, flowers, buttons, paper towel and toilet paper rolls, beads and other things but mostly yarn. One project in particular is an afghan that I started 7 years ago. I am almost 3/4 way done, but when I saw I missed a stitch I haven’t had the heart to rip it out to fix it and I don’t want to finish it with it there. I’m ready to try something different.

  11. Lynn S. says

    My stash includes items for sewing crafts, knitting and crocheting items, scrap booking, paper crafts, making greeting cards, magnets, teacher gifts, painting items, fabric, ribbons, rubber stamps, tools, tools tools for every type of craft. Eeeeeeeek. . . I DO HAVE ALOT IN MY STASH! (My husband is right again.)

  12. Carla S says

    I have tons of dmc floss, cross stitch kits, wooden shapes, magnets,quilting tools,stickers,yards of fabric, a half a closet of yarn skeins, tons of hooks and needles, and a small box of ornament making stuff.

  16. Sarah Parrott says

    My craft stash? Ummm, fabric – small pieces & a couple of larger pieces, yarn, buttons, ribbon, T-Shirts, lots of pattern books & loose patterns.

  17. Amanda Strauss says

    This is a great idea. I have given myself. Challenge this year to only sew and craft with what I have. So far I have done pretty well. But I still have more things to be used that I do t have a clue with what to do.

  18. Margaret says

    My stash is yarn, fabrics, buttons, paints, lots of scrap booking supplies, wood, burlap wreath supplies, and more! I love crafting!

  19. Aunt Nancy says

    Stash -3/4 of a tractor trailer truck we just moved in! Highlights include 20 ‘x6’ of shelving for yarn, eight dollhouses, 4 five drawer file cabinets of paper craft supplies, 17 boxes (3.1 cu feet each) of fabric, 108 rolls of ribbon, 28 lbs of beads, and a ton of stuff that can’t be quantified!

  20. says

    Because of my prudent buying and outstanding organizational skills, most of my stash has been moved to my barn, which is now threatening to explode. Like the blob, lots of the stash has oozed back into the house, especially fabrics, buttons, ribbons, pretty papers, string, yarn, and lace.

  21. colleen loucks says

    I started embroidery when I was 2 (Mom had to do something to occupy me while she was doing the same). Have gone on to sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, card making, fabric, wood & glass painting, stained glass, jewelry making, ornaments. Haven’t been able to master tatting yet, but do have a book and supplies for that. Have all the supplies for these hobbies, now just need to get with it

  22. Marilyn says

    I have stashes of jewellery stuff from when I was doing a jewellery business, stashes of Duck Tape Products and stuff when I was doing a duck tape business, lots of wool and now lots of plastic bags for making Plarn and crocheting stuff for my Plarn business. I finally went through all my stashes of other craft stuff, as I’m getting ready to move next month after my wedding, and donated to friends kids, Salvation Army, Value Village and whoever else could use them. That was harder than I thought to let that stuff leave my home as I have been collecting craft stuff for years… lol.

  23. sharon wells says

    I have collected so much craft stash I don’t think I’ll ever use it all. I get an idea and start collecting but in the mean time something else comes up and off I go. Friends have given me craft stuff to complete their project and them let me keep the leftovers. So, I have a little of everything. I love to do things for others and enjoy crafting with my grandchildren! I tend to give a lot of finished projects to the others.

  24. Evelyn Martin says

    I am 71 years old and learned to knit when I was 12 years old. Since then, I have learned to crochet, make jewelry, scrapbook, make cards, make centerpieces, and make ornaments. I have ten 18-gallon bins of yarn in my yarn stash. My stash for card making and scrapbooking is huge since I have been collecting stickers, stamps, papers, glitter pens, color pens, color pencils, ribbons, flowers and other embellishments for over 25 years. It is a good thing that I have a basement in which to store the stash of all the different crafts with which I have been involved for the past 60 years.

  25. Kathy Lake says

    In my stash: canvas,yarn,paints, deco mesh, mason jars, fabric, ribbon,wood cutouts,stencils,and the list goes on and on and,well ,you get it!

  26. paula morel says

    I am a novice at crafting but love to try new things. Your website has helped tremendously. I have shelves set up as well as a rolling table and a long “to do” list.

  27. Brenda Elsner says

    I love crafting!!! My stash consists of yarn, ribbon, fabric, wood pieces, glue, pom poms, cross stitch thread and fabric, paints, plaster, wiggle eyes, feathers, angel wings, rubber stamps, paper, colored paper, glitter, confetti, stickers, the list goes on. I am always picking up crafting stuff and pull some of it out on a rainy day!!
