Inquiring minds want to know what’s new, what’s different, what’s interesting, and generally speaking, what’s up! On this page you’ll find fun gadget suggestions, organizational ideas, time-saving tidbits, or useless trivia to make your sewing time more fun.
What about those storage bins?
Once you start accumulating piles of neatly cut up scraps, you’ll want to store them so you can find them easily. Purchase shoe-box sized storage bins at your local quilt shop, hobby store, or office supply store. The bins I like best are from Iris. They are just the right size, have a square, stable bottom, they are stackable, and are made of clear see-through plastic, so you can see the colors easily. An online search for “Iris Modular Storage Box, Six Quart” should identify potential sources.
Some folks may say that storing fabric in a plastic container isn’t good for the fabric. And I agree! However, the plan is to store the fabric for the short term until you can USE it in a quilt. Ideally, your fabric scraps, if used consistently, will rotate in and out of the bins quickly, on their way to your next quilt project!
Something old, something new!
The ScrapTherapy logo has changed over the years. These two logos may still be found on official ScrapTherapy books, patterns, and notions. The logo is trademarked, so rest assured, if you see either of these brands, you have my very best efforts in your hand.
Not to worry, the ScrapTherapy concept and quality is the same between products identified by either of these logos.
