Mark’s visit to Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association
Meeting Marisa Zucek — check out her blog QuiltOtaku to see pictures of us at Guild meeting, and a picture of the cool little bag that she made me — I just love it!

Pictures of the items that I found at Target:
Four-square basket with handle. This great little basket is hard wicker and would be nice and sturdy as a sewing catch-all.
Longaberger-style utensil holder – perfect for a Longaberger collectore (no one will know it’s not a real one ; )
Wood caddy – my personal favorite, which could be painted and decorated. Hey, we’re quilters, we decorate things!
Shoe sorter — a perfect place for stashing your fat quarters.
Here is the closet organizer unit with sliding shelves (I said “drawers”, sorry!). I think the sliding shelves would make it so easy to find your fabrics.
Here is another idea for fabric storage, in this so-cute basket cubby. I love that the baskets are lined.
My very favorite “Cutter Bee” scissors. $6.99 at Target and WalMart. When they don’t cut well anymore, toss them in the junk drawer for your family to use, or toss them out. Sharpening service will cost as much as a new pair. I love the big finger holes — my hands don’t get tired as much, and it helps with arthritis.
Can you envision sorting your rulers by size using this cool sorter? What a nice way to see your rulers at a glance, and be organized. That’s next on my shopping list!
What a cute mail sorter! However, this won’t hold mail. Here is what I use it for:
Here its’ companion, the magazine holder. Ooh, I can just imagine all of my cherished magazines, that I can’t bear to part with, beautifully organized in these cool little holders.
The scrapbook cubby – well, some might use it for that. I think it would be great as a quilt block keeper. Just grab the box you need for class and go! No pizza boxes causing drool with your family, that might mistakenly end up in the garbage.
Ziplock Big Bags XXL, actually come in smaller sizes for smaller quilts. I only wish I had invented the patent for zip-lock bags!
