Philosophical Fabric Stash Question
If you are an avid sewist of any sort, you probably have a stash of fabric. I've been thinking about mine, particularly since I've been completely unable to make any resolutions about not buying fabric and sticking to them. The only thing I can say is I'm trying to buy with purpose. So far its working... kinda.
In any case, I'm working on a cataloging project here soon and some of the fabric I've had for years. How long does a piece of fabric have to be in one's stash before the monetary value doesn't even count toward "price of garment made"? Its easy when someone gives it to you, or you inherit it, like I have, from relatives. Fabric cost is zero, unless you count space.
So, that's it really, after what time period do you consider the price of the fabric originally no longer factors into the "cost" of your garment?
