    What a great way to show off your yardstick collection!
    And so appropriate for the sewing room too!!!

    Maybe you could show us a closer view, too?

    and how quickly you can measure fabric-- just pull out a piece from the shelf, and measure it right there!

    it's not really a collection of yardsticks.. he bought them at homedepot for .60 a piece to trim out my cubbies.. but i think it's very appropriate and it works for me !!

    Great idea, none the less!

    I always like it when a collection or memorabilia is actually put to use ... and not left as dust collectors, thus why I jumped to the conclusion, in knowing people who collect antique yardsticks.
