  • ruler storage

    I moved to Florida in December, and in unpacking I know I saw the ruler holder. You know, that 6" X 24" piece of wood with the grooves? SOMEWHERE I saw it, but do you think I can find the thing? Of course not. I set it aside (somewhere) as I was working on unpacking another endless box. Now...

  • Keep your pins handy

    I already had this spice rack, but I didn't like it for spices. As I looked at it, I saw that it would be good in my sewing room. Now I have all of my different kinds of pins stored on a shelf right above my cutting table. Even though the front is clear, I taped a sample of the pin that is inside...

  • Re: Fat Quarter storage

    Costgo sells the spring garden lettuce in clear plastic containers. I save these and they are the perfect size for storing fat quarters. Repurpose - recycle. Keeps them out of the land fill and keeps my fabric so happy.

Most only need to be wiped out with a dry paper towel to be made safe. The come in a variety of sizes and the labels remove quite easily allowing...

  • Organizing current projects

    When I start a new quilt project (sometimes they can take a while to complete!), I grab one of those zippered bags that you get from purchased drapes, linen, comforters, etc. I save these for just this purpose, as they're clear, some have a "label pocket" & come in all sizes. I enclose...

  • Labelling storage

    Just saw a show today on tv showing the use of chalkboard contact paper and thought about our sewing studios, and all those boxes, clear plastic tubs etc. we use for our fabric storage. Just cut a rectangle of this awesome sticky back chalkboard, write your title on label, and best yet- it is re-positionable...
