    I bought mine at Target for a dollar a piece. They work well for fatquarters and sets of material. Be care ful though, if you over load them they will start to turn loose where the velcro attaches to the top. Got 4 in my closet.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I have four of them hanging in the closets in my sewing room. (we took the folding doors off the closets so they are always open and accessible.) I love the shoe holders. I use them to sort smaller collections of usually FQs. One section holds all my FQs of heart fabrics, one holds my fruit/vegetable FQs, Three sections hold my fairy frost FQs, and so forth. Very handy

    Mine came with a hanger and aren't the velcro type. I got them at JoAnns using my discount coupons. I'm sure they weren't expensive.

    I have seen them used by Helen Deighton - UK fabric dyer. They looked good but needed some support at the top in the middle

    I have one that came with my closet organizer. I had redone my sewing closet with plenty of shelves and I use the fabric shoe holder to store my cone threads in by color.

    I have both kinds and the over the rod one started to rip out on top so sewed it back togather and dont put so much weight on it now.
    The over the door hanger is nice for storing videos and odd ball stuff.

    I have used them. They do hang on (supposedly) with velcro. The velcro is not really strong enough if you fill each one with fat quarters, or whatever. I ended up nailing mine to the end of a shelf unit instead. LOVED it 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 for your ideas -- I will look for the ones with hooks to go over the closet bar rather than get the velcro ones.
