    What's a Girl To Do With Her Magazines?

    Help Please........

    I have alot of quilting, sewing, and embroidery magazines and need some ideas on how to store them. Right now they are being stored in a file cabinet in the garage. I also have some stored in boxes. Is there anyone else out there that has the same problem?

    You can get magazine boxes, to store them. School libraries use these. Many places carry them, including IKEA.

    I too had oodles of mags stored then I decided to weed them out and to pass the rest on to the library's book sale.

    I put my magazines in large binders. I found plastic slides to go in the center of the magazine and the outer edge has holes punched to go in the binder. I got the plastic slides from Keepsake Quilting catalog.

    I had to do that too. I have Quilters Newsletter mags, all the way back to the first one I ever bought in 1975.

    I used to have loads of magazines too. But , I went thru every single one and found the patterns I really wanted to make , then cut all info out of the mag and placed in in a sheet protector in a binder. Now I list the name of the mag on the spine of the binder and what is inside. Works for me

    Take out the pages that interest you and put them in a folder. Throw the rest away.

    I use the magazine boxes. I found the smaller ones work better the ones that hold more than a year's worth are too heavy to move. I bought all of mine at yard sales and thrift stores. Luckily I am not a matchy matchy person. I thought about cutting them up but as a new quilter I want them whole for now.

    I am currently getting rid of all my older magazines. I figure if I haven't cracked them open in 5 years, then I probably don't need them. Who wants to go back to templates anyway? I will be keeping my newer ones and all my Quilters Newsletter Magazines.
