    I have been wanting to buy a holder for my rulers but have been a cheap skate. Today while at the thrift store an idea came to my mind???? I found a wire rack anfd bought it to put my rulers on. It worked perfectly and only cost $1.99. Leave it to a quilter she will utilize non quilting things and turn them into quilting tools. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    the holder is black metal

    Good for you and isn't it wonderful to have them all in one place for easy access. Best $1.99 you ever spent, isn't it?

    Wow, you can fit a gazillion more rulers on that rack than I can on my pretty wooden - and not cheap - one (only 8 rulers).

    And the longer ones look like they are well balanced.

    I'm envious.

    Enjoy your wonderful new holder. Great find.

    I think I have to start hitting thrift stores.

    Great idea. I will have to check out our thrift stores, but wait, I think I have one in the basement.
