Yardage- Term used to describe any cut length of fabric. In the U.S., fabric is measured and cut in yards (36-inch intervals). A length of fabric in an undefined amount.
It's not the official definition, which has something to do with animal pens.
But I'm sticking with fabric as Y is a tough one.
I have lots of yardage in my studio. Stacked in cubbies and jammed in a trunk I've owned since college. In an earlier post I showed my trunk full of old fabric. Recently I discovered a local business that accepts & resells all kinds of craft stuff. Perfect! A place to obtain & pass on "yardage".
When I'm deep into a project I like to coral all the pieces in a bin.
I have a table set up right now for painting soem "yardage" for several
fabric containers I have in mind.

It's just another word for fabric, but it had to be my "Y"
