I found this suggestion about storing embroidery hoops that Marie Duncan from VSM made several years ago and wanted to share it with you.


Q: Do you have any suggestions for storing and organizing hoops? I’ve accumulated quite a collection and they are all over the place!

A: An over-the-door wreath holder makes a great hook for your hoops! You could also make a holder to hang on the wall. Purchase Velcro straps, designed to put around rolled up cords, from an office supply store. Stitch them at 3-inch intervals to a strip of fabric or ribbon. Sew the middle of the strap to the ribbon so you can loop it around the hoop. Put a hanging ring on top of the strip and hang it on a nail in the wall!

I’m having a great time at my condo in Orange Beach. I have made several charity quilts since I’ve been here. It’s great to sew and look out at the ocean.
