    Thanks. I have the over the door model and it is full of the odds and ends that I frequently use and want easy to get to. I found a spot for one of the hanging ones and think I will get one -- I thought to group UFOs in the little cubbies. My problem with UFOs is that I misplace them in my crowded room.

    I use my holder to keep my embroidery stabilizers organized. I love it.

    I have about 4 of them all with fabric. I put kits together along with the pattern and whatever else that goes with it. They work really good and you can see everything in each bend. My fabric and pattern stash has grown so much that I bout plastic hangers from WalMart and am hanging my fabric on the and putting them on the clothes bar. I love it because you can see the fabric so well and it looks so nice that way.

    I have a spot where I can put one, but I don't want to invest the $ if they can't hold the fabric.

    Thanks!!

    I have one that has hooks to hang from the pole and it works. Wanted to add a second, but all the new ones have velcro. I worry that the weight would cause the velcro to open so I'll be interested in what others say.

    I have four of them I use. They have hooks on the top to hang on the closet rod. They work great

    I use shoe bags of all kinds. I get mine at the thrift store for a couple of dollars. I have 2 with the pockets hanging over the French doors coming into my sewing room. I have another on the wall just behind the door. I have one with the 3 square sections and round openings going into it, which I believe is meant for toys, but I keep my fleece scraps, my fusable pieces, and heavier fabric scraps in it. I also have the square sweater one that hangs from a rod, but so far haven't found a place to hang it.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Are you talking about the shoe racks that hang on the back of a door - or the ones that hang inside your closet on the clothes rod - I love them, but the problem I have is with my house - I have no room in any of my closets to hang one of these bags from the rod- unfortunately my doors open right to the wall, so if I add anything to the back of the door, it will not allow my door to stay open
