Storing Your Scissors in the Sewing Room

Scissor storage in the sewing room can be a real problem. Put them in drawers or plastic tubs and they knock against each other, potentially dulling the blades. What else can you do with them?

I’ll tell you . . .

Go to your local hardware store and look in the tools section for magnetic bars. I picked these up at 2 for $8.00. Hubby mounted them on the wall with screws and I stuck my scissors on them. I have two of them in handy places and they are great, not only for scissors, but for packages of sewing machine needles, thimbles, threaded hand needles, seam rippers, and lots of other little metal things!
