Project Organization


This is the first post of a series called Project Organization. I will be sharing tips from all over on organization our sewing spaces. The first one comes from me, Sandy.

PROBLEM: What to do with all the wonderful rulers we use when quilting. I have had them from one end of my studio (so much more fun to say than sewing room) to the other and never where I think they are when I need them. And I can't tell you how many times I have looked for my 8 1/2" x 21" ruler - I know what you are thinking "how can you misplace something so large?" Well I seemed to find a way, but no longer.
SOLUTION: The back of one door and several 3m repositionable hooks. I am addicted to 3m hooks and picture hangers. Easy peasy to install, no holes and no commitment because they are easy to remove. I'm 2 weeks into the new system and I LOOOVE it! My door is rarely closed so they are out of site but always where they are supposed to be when I need them.

tried to click on the photo for closer look but it wouldn't come up. I too would love to see these hooks closer... Love the idea of no holes on the back of the door.

I keep all my rulers in a long window box style flower pot at the end of my cutting table. They're all in there.. all the time ;)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
