All really neat tips. My DD and grand babies are going back to Virginia in a week so I get my sewing room back. New are going to be installing a Murphy bed so that will free up some space..

What else do you put on the peg board besides rulers?

Mama Joy;  you are right that it is a good idea to use a peg board for various things.  I have a large door size peg board in my office and I use it for a lot of things also.

Linda:
Since I don't have a lot of wall space because of windows, I took an old metal ironing board and took the legs off of it. I then spray painted it to match the room. The holes in the ironing board act like a peg board. I can hang hooks and baskets on it to store things just like a peg board. I can also put magnets on it to hold notes.

Very clever, Linda!  I think you should take a picture of your ironing board/peg board and submit it to a quilting magazine to see if they'll publish your idea.

Welcome! MamaJoy, I like your idea. I need a peg board in my sewing room as every thing is on my sewing and cutting tables. Thanks for the tip. Will be going to the local hard ware store for the board,and of course DH will install it for me. Susan

Lots of things. I bought a peg board organiser that will hold many different items. Looks similar to this:

Mine came with two baskets too.

I have patterns, batteries, scissors, buttons, safety pins, basting spray, glue, etc etc

Annie, I put all kinds of things on my peg board such as packages of needles, snaps, buttons, glue gun, mini iron, embroidery frames, craft supplies, patterns, anything I can hang up. I save the packages that items came in so I can hang them back up for storage.

Ive got a peg board and the answer to the question is what can't you hang on a peg board.. lol I can't hardly see it anymore, It works as a sewing center for my other machine and holds; roils of stabilizer, interfacing, appliqué backing, sewing threads, serger thread rack, tools not used often, two shelves full of embroidery blanks and boxes of scraps, boxes of squares, etc, a hanging spool for ribbons, plastic zipper bags with many items at the ready, inspiration items and of course a lamp is clipped to the underside of the shelf. It is organized really it is.

As to the question of what you can use pegboard for the answer is really anything that you want in sight.and can figure out a way of hanging. Personally I prefer my ruler rack  and bins to the pegboard but that is because pegboard gives me the feeling of clutter. I had never thought though that the ironing board could be my magnet board. New food for thought as my ironing board is just used as a table extension when I machine quilt.

Kathy,

Unfortunately, I'm in Arizona and the ironing board is in my home in Ohio. I don't have any photos with me. I can take a photo when I get home the end of March. Sorry.

MNnancy,

Maybe in the spring when I get back home. Thanks for mentioning it! Never thought about it.

Mama Joy and Caryl Anne,

Thanks for sharing.  I love the idea of putting everything up and accessible at the same time.  My standard poodle still thinks he's a puppy and that everything within his reach is fair game, (which is almost everything).  I also like the idea of removing the peg board when guests arrive as my sewing room doubles as a guest room too.

I am so grateful to all your wonderful and clever ideas.

If you install the pegboard on the wall and you chose to frame the pegboard with wood (which isn't a bad idea because it is a little flexible) be aware that you will lose the use of the pegboard that is over the wood.  So if you only have a small space to put up the pegboard it may not be worth the effort.  You could use either bolts with spacers to hold it out from the wall just make the bolts long enough that it will not interfe with the hooks you choose. 

Is this clear?  I give my DH crap because his communication skills are sometimes lacking and he may have caught it from me.

Wow, this is a great idea! I have my Mom's old ironing board this will be perfect. I was about to throw it out. I'm glad I can repurpose it.
