    I have been wanting to get a ribbon holder for all my ribbons, but the cheapest I found starts at around 30.00. I would probably need two, till I found this. Two chains, 2 S hooks, and as many cafe rods as you need. I like it, and I am gonna do this.

    I loved your idea, I am going to use it for ribbons that I use for seam stiching.

    I have had the same sort of set up for my batting and my freezer paper, made by DH with closet poles and end caps. It really helps to have things reachable.

    That is a serious amount of ribbons! I use a similiar set up when I do a bargello quilt , but I use dowels and rubber bands on the ends.

    Great idea! That would be helpful for organizing strips of fabric also.

    oh my..I am showing this to my sister..

    AND you could make cardboard washers for the ends of the rods to keep them from sliding through the chain..or get smaller chain if you can...what a GREAT idea!

    Wow, what a great idea. Somebody was thinking things out. Adjustable and all.
