    I bought some shelves that are wire and screwed them into my wall above my cutting table. I have my books standing on those shelves. I bought the individual shelves at (ugh) Walmart for very little money. They are coated and colored white, which looks pretty in my yellow sewing room. I have three shelves that are each about 2' long. Then I have a dresser as tall as me and one side is drawers and the other is shelves and I put the rest of my books and magazines in there. It has a door on the shelf side. I bought it at Costco for $79. Very reasonable, I think anyway.

    I was lucky that I was a bit of a bookworm before I took up quilting and had had an eight foot wide bookcase built. I didn't take too long to fill it . I've bought another that is four foot square and filled that but that and taking some books to the charity shop I've made room for more reading books but am running out of room again. I also have books out in my sewing room. I don't buy books or magazines any more because there is so much on the internet. Now I have about a dozen loose leaf folders with plastic pockets. They are all stuffed full.
    Saved on a memory stick I have over 700 Quilt patterns and that doesn't include what is still saved on my computer. MBS, Jelly Roll quilts Bargello quilts plus several folders with free quilt patterns . Not saying there aren't any repeats but there wouldn't be too many.

    Two of the folders have embroidery designs & colour charts. Another has knitting patterns. I just hope the good Lord has plans for me to remain here for another 20 - 30 years and I might have a chance of using some of these as well as some of the 100s of yards of fabric I have.
