~~ organize patterns in binders in page protectors--put small patterns on a ring ~~fold fabric over a ruler--this helps you know the dimensions of the piece along with a very good fold ~~take a picture of your quilts, print and label them in a photo album, this is a great method for documentation and remembering! Darla has taken a picture of every quilt she has made. ~~use see thru plastic containers for thread keeping ~~ *see more organizing tips below.
*More organizing tips:
~~use the thread holders that attached to the wall with pegs, placing spools of thread on each peg.
~~can made a ruler holder by using a piece of wood and cutting slits to make slots to hold the rulers
~~can attach a strip to the wall that has hooks on it to keep scissors, etc tools
~~make fabric baskets, each a different color, keep small scraps is each color coordinating basket. There are many ideas for making these baskets on pinterest, including free tutorials on how to construct them.
~~a label maker can be a game changer...use it for labeling all plastic containers, boxes, tins and baskets.
~~Wool storage in plastic bins with handles is a must...the shorter height, long bins can be stored under tables or a bed.
