    insulation board and can make grids on your flannel

    (also you can just make one and lean up against a wall, so you can move it from room to room, and to store it when not in use (maybe along a wall, behind a door, or under a bed) Have fun!

    Thanks for posting these links.
    I just purchased a 60 x 70 that hangs from Connecting Threads last week.
    But, I really like the 20 x 30 made from the foam boards. I can use this smaller one for my doll quilts. :thumbup:

    Guess what hubby will be doing this week-end? :lol:

    pictures of cool design walls, scroll thru the photos (also those photos will give you more ideas for your sewing rooms)

    using a curtain rod for a design wall and also scroll down to the bottom for the 2 smaller design walls made from coreboards

    I ordered this one:
    http://www.connectingthreads.com/cft...y.cfm?ID=81921

    Should be here in a couple of days. I can't wait! :thumbup:
    I used the coupon code CHARM2, got another $5.96 off of the sale price.
    But, I am going to make a smaller one (20 x 30) to hang above my sewing table for my doll quilts. :D
    I might try to go tomorrow to get the stuff to make it.

    I just saw a bunch of those wall dividers at a thrift store.
    Just the other day I was thinking I could staple a flannel tablecloth to a shelf and just roll up when I am not using it.
    Great tips & links, thanks for sharing.

    I was at a quilt store the other day and a lady took 2 big cork bulletin boards and covered them with a flannel table cloth, staple it on the back and used 2 silver hooks to hang on the wall, they had 2 hanging beside each other, so portable also to take for sew day, guild meetings, show and tell, workshops so you can carry your own design wall with you

    would be a great way to display for a presentation and just set on an easel
