    Would a notebook with the clear plastic pockets work for at least some of them?

    That's why God gave us ziplock bags and Sharpies to write on the bags. I has assumed you are talking about various templates - but not sure. So I should have asked why kind of templates are you referring to before making any suggestions.

    I don't machine quilt but I have tons (relatively) now of other stencils. Not sure if yours are commercially produced or not. Mine are and all have holes at one end. I use a circular belt hanger that I then hang on a hook on the back of the door in my sewing room. Not overly organized, per se, but they are controlled and I can easily look through them and then just grab the bunch in front of the one I want and then replace the unwanted bunch back on the belt hanger.

    I've drilled holes in the ones that don't have (cardboard has punch holes), and I put them on those metal shower cutrain hooks--then hang on plastic coat hangers or wood dowels. They begin to multiply like rabbits, don't they?

    You could scan the templates and then put them on your computer or flash drive. It the design is large then have it copied at a business office store.

    If you use them frequently, do the above to catalog them. Roll them up for storage and find a good place to put them that way.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.
