    Wherever you can get to them and remember where they are ... as long as they remain flat.

    Mine are in a chest that serves as a coffee table in my living room. That chest holds a lot of my sewing/quilting items and no one knows because it looks so neat.

    I have some on a sturdy pin hanging on the wall and then I have also bought some sticky holders that hang on the wall. I think as long as they lay or hang flat they should be oky dokay..

    If nothing else, put them in the bottom of a drawer where they'll lay flat. I have mine hanging on a wall but some people don't like to do that.

    I keep mine in my sewing desk. There is a drawer just for them.

    I have a really small workroom for my longarm. I store a lot of things vertically. Here are some pix of this 4 ft x 8 ft white trellis under the window in my workroom. Stencils, patterns, basket of rulers, and a clipboard with orders all hang on it on S-hooks.
