    I am rearranging my sewing room now that I have a new storage cupboard for my material.

    The cutting rulers are always an issue. Give me some great ideas of where I might keep the rulers?

    In the closet in my sewing room I hung peg board. The peg board is about 3 ft by 6 ft. I hang rulers, scissors and a few other things in the space. I keep my rulers on my cutting table in a stand when using them for projects. Post pictures for us to see!

    Mine are on a cheap pegboard.
    This way you dont have to take off a dozen rulers to get to the one you want.
    Just wish I had made it larger.
    My specailty rulers are in a desk top letter holder on a shelf.
    It is under the hanging fabrics, kinda hard to see.
    By the way Im 72 yrs old and single so had to hang it myself. If I can do it anybody can.

    i have a cutting table in the center of the room. it is actually 2 dressers back to back with a laminate top. so on the ends of the dressers, i hang my cutting mats and rulers. those that didn't have holes in them... i drilled small holes. they hang on finishing nails.

    I hate peg boards ... the pegs always come out! :)

    For now my rulers are in an upright letter holder next to my cutting table.
    I've been considering nails in the wall ... though hate the clutter look, so for now have kept them in the letter holder.

    With my SMAll room there is no wall space for peg boards. I put a hanger on the back of the door with an "S" hook to hang the rulers. Yes, I always want the one in the back. At least I know where to find them. LOL

    I did not have the extra sense (LOL) to buy pegboard...so I just hammered some nails in the wall and hung up my rulers, hoops and cutting board. It works great for me.

    I've seen tips where people use one of those big metal rings for hanging belts in your closet. The big metal ring all has a hook at the top like a hanger.
