Sewing Room Tips: Quilt and Sewing Pattern Storage Ideas

Hi friends!

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new quilt and sewing pattern storage ideas.

Pattern storage is an issue for many – but especially for pattern designers! We need to have a spot to store the patterns we sell.

Plus, I need to have a spot to store the patterns I buy.

Yes, I do buy patterns! Quilt patterns, sewing patterns…. more than I will probably ever make. To me, they are like coffee table books, inspiring to look through and dream! Though occasionally I get around to making something other than my own designs.

Some people store their patterns in sheet protectors and place them in notebooks. I do this primarily for my PDF patterns and many of my knitting patterns. But it works for the smaller patterns too!

Practical Quilt and Sewing Pattern Storage Ideas:

Bins are a popular way to store patterns – either plastic or cardboard bins. I used to have some cardboard bins that were perfect for sewing patterns. But they got damp and fell apart.

Another way is to store them in hanging files in a file cabinet.

Below is newest plastic bin I found! It is meant for storing greeting cards and it is the perfect size for storing quilt and sewing patterns!

I love that the bin comes with 6 adjustable dividers; it helps to keep the patterns organized and upright. In my other bins, the patterns flop down if the bin isn’t full.

I’m thinking I may have to organize them alphabetically. And get a few more of these bins. I would be so organized then!

What about you? How do you store your quilt patterns? Let us know in the comments!

happy quilting!
