Taming the Stash Monster


Taming the Stash Monster, an EGA Group Correspondence Course


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 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 make your stash work more effectively for you!  More information at
