WFMW (Works-for-Me-Wednesday) is a “blog carnival'” hosted by Rocks in my Dryer (great name for a blog!). Basically, the idea is that on Wednesday you post a little tip you’ve learned on any topic–anything that has “worked for you” in making your life easier. I liked the idea, and I thought I’d give it a try with a bit of a quilting slant every week. This week happens to be the “Backwards theme” week at WFMW, so instead of sharing a tip that has worked for me, I’ll throw out an issue or question that has stumped me, and hopefully you’ll all leave some super suggestions to help me (and anyone else who reads this and has the same problem) out!
So here goes: I have about a bazillion plastic quilting stencils, and I can’t figure out a good way to store them so that they’re sorted by type (small block, large block, border, etc.), easily accessible, and not bent or mashed into un-usability. Tall order, isn’t it? They’re all different sizes, some of them quite large and others really small, though they do usually have a hole or holes at the top for hanging. Short of mounting a giant piece of pegboard on my wall and hanging each one of them up (we absolutely don’t have wall space for that), I’m stumped. How do you store all your quilting stencils in your sewing room? Help me out here people, please!
Then head over to WFMW headquarters at Rocks in my Dryer for great tips on everything from kids to money on this Works-for-me-Wednesday.
