We're always glad when people ask us how to do things they don't understand, and give us feedback about where they're getting stuck using the site. It helps us learn what is less user-friendly, and what we might need to change in the future, and that's useful information! (If you have a question or some feedback, don't hesitate to post about it in the forums!)
One of the questions that keeps coming up is how to stash fabrics and add to Textillia's fabric database.
How does the fabric database work?
The fabric (and fabric collections) database is a subset of the "Materials" section of Textillia, which currently contains fabrics, fabric collections, and thread, and will likely someday contain other things like notions and other tools. The fabrics that are already in Textillia's database have been added either by me or by other site members. Anyone can add fabric, fabric collections, thread, and patterns to the main database - we think of these as the "community managed" content types. It might be a surprise that anyone can add and edit these kinds of content, but the reality is that if I tried to add all known fabrics to the database myself, it would take my entire lifetime and then some! We can build it a LOT faster working together.
