    I would like to know if anyone has the designer boards and if so, how do you like them. I read some negatives
    reviews on Nancys Notion so I hesitate to buy one. I made
    a small one and covered it with felt but I think i should
    have a bigger one but I really don't have a lot of room.
    I thought about making one with the white PVC pipe and
    I could roll it up when I'm not using it. I would have to set
    the pipe into something to make it stand up. Just wondering what you gals are using. The floor just don't
    work for me. Too much up and down

    I have a whole wall in my sewing room covered with warm and natural batting. My whole wall is only about the size of a king size quilt ;-)

    I got one of those old fashioned cardboard, tri-fold cutting boards from Joann's (coupon frenzy, of course) and covered it - stapled it, actually - with flannel. When I don't need it, it folds up and stores behind a cabinet. I used flannel so I could wash it if I needed to

    In one bedroom, I have a 6' bifold door. I went to the dollar store and got 4 over the door hooks. Then I just took a flannel backed vinyl table cloth & 4 skirt hangers and hung it. Works great and it's easily removed if needed.

    I have a wooden valance that runs along the top ceiling edge of the sewing cupboards in my sewing room. I put up two holders with a 1/2 inch pipe running the length of the wood. I bought those cute little rings with clips at Walmart and put them on the pipe. I then clipped a flannel backed plastic table cloth to the clips. I open it flat when I want to use it and push it like a curtain to the wall when not in use.
