    Storing pantographs

    I'm looking for ideas on how to store pantographs? I looked through mission organization and didn't see any. What do you do??

    Not very pretty, but I roll mine up and stick them into old six-pack cartons which sit on the floor beside the LA!

    i use empty paper towel rolls & roll them up onto them- held with a rubber band- these are stacked in a (decorative) box they fit nicely in- i think my square box has 25 rolls standing in it-(5X5) you could probably find plastic (totes) that would hold many & stack
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    ​My $store has messenger tubes. I wonder if something like that or mailing tubes would work?

    I use a clear vinyl purse hanger. They fit in perfectly and I can see the designs without having to get them out. You could also use an over the door clear vinyl shoe holder.

    A pantograph is a long paper pattern that is printed with a quilting design that long arm quilters follow when doing edge to edge quilting motifs. You follow the lines with a laser light or stylus to duplicate the pattern on the quilt.

    Office supply stores carry racks designed to hold rolled blueprints, maps, etc. You might check them for size. Also, the shoe racks that hang on closet rods may work.

    I use 1 1/2" PVC pipe that is cut to fit the depth of my shelves and they sit one next to the other with the panto rolled up inside. I then label each with a number and have a notebook with a sample of each with that number.
