    Default Stabilizer storage

    Thank you all for your ideas on thread storage, now i need your ideas on stabilizer storage. Do you keep the stabilizer rolled and stored in a small plastic garbage can? What about the water soluble kind? And, how do you keep the woven and non-woven stabilizers separate and marked as to which type it is? T I A

    I don't have a lot of space when it comes to storing stabilizer so I have them in at least 3 places. The smaller ones I have up on the wall in a rack for foil paper. The much larger rolls like cut-aways I keep above one of my bookcases keeping their plastic wrap on them as it could be months before I use them so this keeps the dust off them. The ones I use the most including the mesh and water soluble type I still keep their wrappers on them first so I can see what they are and second to keep the dust off them also but I keep them on a shelf under the cutting table so close by where I can just pull them out. It's the best I can do with the limited space I have.

    i use a hanging shoe/purse organizer.
    the long/wide roles stick out the sides but that's not an issue for me.

    In labelled zip loc bags tossed in a drawer. I'm not particularly organized mainly because it takes a lot of time to organize and that cuts into my sewing time lol

    I have a wine rack under the table that holds the rolls.

    I bought an over the door stabilizer from Nancy’s Notions years ago and it works very well. I couldn’t find those on-line when I tried to find it this morning. If you google “over the door stabilizer organizer” though there are very similar ones out there.

    I use a rolling laundry cart to store rolls. I also have 2 rectangle bins with lids. One stores bolts of fabrics upright. The other stores long Accuquilt dies.

    I'm getting ready to move, so all my stabilizers are in totes, but I like to store them in ziplock bags or in the tubes they come it.
