    Where did you get the racks for your rulers?

    The cutting rulers are always an issue. Give me some great ideas of where I might keep the rulers?
    I use double sided tape and peg board on back of sewing room door. when open nobody see's them. Out if sight out mind. close to machine and cutting table , just in reach. Have a thread rack back there to. Nice!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hot melt keep pegs in place, on back side.

    I purchased two large rings in the quilting section at Wall-Mart. They are designed to organize your rulers. They have a hanger on the top so you can hang them up. I have mine in the closet. I also purchased one for my hoops and it works great.

    katcox- Its a large S hook but to thick for rulers. You could get smaller ones but then would not fit over the closet rod.

    I used the back of the studio door, to hang my rulers and other quilting supplies including some patterns. We didn't have any peg board so used a piece of old paneling with long screws. Hope you don't mind seeing this picture again, for those who have. The pic. also shows my stash stored behind sliding mirror doors.

    This way you dont have to take off a dozen rulers to get to the one you want.
    Just wish I had made it larger.
    My specailty rulers are in a desk top letter holder on a shelf.
    It is under the hanging fabrics, kinda hard to see.
    By the way Im 72 yrs old and single so had to hang it myself. If I can do it anybody can.
    What a great job you have done Rose Marie. I wish you lived near me..... I am always so BAD at putting things back. I also LOVE pegboard !!! I hang all my stemcils on it too. You can find some pieces at Home Depot in their Scrap bin for pennies on the dollar. That is where I got all mine and other goodies until I had to stop driving....

    I keep mine in my quilter's "Pocketful of Rulers" bag I made in a class last year.

    Inside are various pockets for the various ruler sizes plus three pockets on the front.

    I use the bottom row of my pegboard, mainly because I use the upper pegs for my embroidery threads..... each color has its own row ranged from light to dark shades. Also hang my scissors and cutting wheels on the pegs. When I put it up, I nailed 2 strips of wood on the wall, then put the peg board on top so that the pegs go in easily. My biggest problem is storing stencils........ any ideas?

    You can buy metal shower curtain rings and thread nthem thru the holes and hang them up.
