    Do you hang your rulers and mats or how do you take care of them?

    I have my smaller mats lying flat in a storage unit - my large one is actually standing on end between the wall and a dresser so that it doesn't warp.....my pressing board is also there to keep it straight.
    For my rulers, I have 2 wooden holders to stand them in - I like that because they are all within reach and I see them all clearly....

    I have my rulers stored in a ruler rack that my husband made for me. I have my small mats stored standing up behind a book case---I have not had any trouble with them warping there.

    Besure and keep all mats flat and away from heat,like sun etc. as they will warp and will not lay flat. Do not leave them (ever) in your car for any length of time as this too will warp them. My rulers are in a wooded rack on my table. My mats are laying flat at all times on the table or under the sofa. Marge

    I put all of my rulers with holes in them on my pegboard wall, according to size and type. The ones I use the most often are easiest to reach. Just below that is a little shelf my DH made for my ruler rack for the ones that do not have holes. Just below that are where I hang my extra mats on nails. They are all on the opposite side of the room from the windows and heat. My two larger mats remain on my cutting table which sits parallel to all of the above.
