I am screening threads, but you are welcome to add your tips here and I will add them to the official "Tips Page". :D

Don't know if this is where to leave a TIP but here goes. It may sound dumb, but, when I am pinning a binding to be hand sewn, I always COUNT the pins before I begin & when I'm finished. It saves sitting on a dropped or misplaced pin.

I posted this tip but I don't know where I sent it. (One of those "Senior Moments") so I'll post it again. This is in reference to fabric storage.
First I want to say WOW to Gayle. That is a beautiful collection you have there. And I love your cabinets!
I mounted closet rod holders (the kind you can put a shelf on the top of), used a shower curtain rod and hung 6 over the rod sweater holders. Google "over the rod sweater holder" for a visual if my discription isn't clear. I stacked my fabric in it by color so I can see at a glance what I have. You could use the shoe size holders for FQs. If I'm going to be away from my sewing room for any length of time I hang a sheet over them to keep the dust off.

I've searched and searched for actual tips. Perhaps there are three or four in eight pages. We all agree that a tips page is a wonderful idea and we are grateful for it. Now can we limit ourselves just to posting tips instead of all those "great idea" and "thank you" posts? I hate to be grumpy but I don't have time to plow through all those non tip redundant posts.

There was a TIP about binding where you sewed (strips)
2 colors of fabric together, one wider than the other and it made a flange by sewing to the back and then sewing between the flange and the 2nd color. Used it and it is great. Looks like you took a lot of time to do it. NOT
