One of the most surprising behind-thescenes aspects of publishing a magazine is how far in advance we work. Christmas in July? I was working on Christmas in February. It’s fun to plan ahead, but it’s also disorienting. Sometimes I’m not sure what month I’m in, let alone what year. To say the start of 2022 took me by surprise would be an understatement! And just like at the beginning of every January, I now find myself pondering resolutions in an attempt to make it the best year yet, both for Quilts & More™ magazine and my own sewing.

unexpected STORAGE Quilting involves many tools and notions of various sizes. Some of these items, such as acrylic rulers, are notoriously hard to store. Here are seven ideas to display and store necessary quilting supplies in unexpected ways by utilizing objects that weren’t originally created for a sewing space. Take a look at enlisting cosmetics holders outside of the bathroom. The small compartments easily can fit threads while the large compartments can hold rotary cutters, snips, and tins of pins. Place one near your sewing space to keep necessary items close at hand. Floating photo display ledges, designed for gallery walls in living rooms, make the most out of vertical space when installed on walls in your sewing area.
