    I use the medal ring for hanging my rulers I don't often use. Then I have a slotted board on my cutting table for the rulers I use most often.

    Mine are hanging on pegboard, behind my sewing table, making them safe, visible, and within easy reach.

    I used small finishing nails and tapped them into the side of my storage cabinet. I have 6 nails for my rulers and my triangles. If the item doesn't have a hole, I use a zip lock bag and make a hole in the bag. This "wall" doesn't show, as it bunts up to a closet door near the corner of the room. I know where my rulers are, if I remember to put them back!!!!

    I purchased two ruler racks, they are about 24 inches long, have slots in them to hold the rulers. They are side by side on my wall.

    No sewing room, and no wallspace to hang anything, so I opted for an under bed storage container. Because of the size, I had plenty of room to keep all the smaller quilting notions in there also. If it is quilt related( not patterns) and I have it, I know just where to go look.

    I just nailed big long nails in the wall and hung them up. I painted the nails a pretty color first. Looks nice and the rulers are out of my way and I can see at a glance what I have.

    My set up is like this but I found a plate shelf at thrift store and had DH add more slots for my rulers... mounted it above my cutting table and voila!!!!!!!!!

    My sewing room is very small, I love this idea, I am going to buy an over the door hanger and hang a peg board on it to hold my rulers on the outside of my closet door. I then can see them when the door is closed.

    Great ideas here.

    One thing that I do is I hung a cook book holder over my sewing machine to hold patterns and sewing books. Right at eye level, I make fewer mistakes that way sewing pieces.

    I have one of those rings and hate it! The ruler I want is always behind others and you have to take all off to get to it. I now have a small bin I stand them up in and it works alot better.

    I have no extra wallspace or a cupboard, but I do have at the end of my table a space in which I placed a letter holder from WM. Works great.
