Storing WIPs – The ArtBin Box

Someone had asked on a Facebook group that I am in for long arm quilters how we stored our works in progress. Several months ago I found the perfect solution at Sam’s Club. The ArtBin 12″ x 12″ box.

The ArtBin box has been an awesome find! It is a heavy duty plastic that has latches and a handle for easy carrying. I have not noticed any plastic smell inside the ArtBin and there has not been any color transfer from the boxes that I have purchased.

Here is a pic of the label so you can see exactly what it is.

The ones I found at Sam’s Club were tinted in different translucent colors. I love that they are translucent so that I can see my projects inside without having to open the box.

I found them at Joann’s Fabrics online and they are about $10 each. I don’t remember what I paid for the four box bundle at Sam’s Club.

This 12″ x 12″ box holds everything I need to make a quilt. I like using precuts so it even holds a 10″ x 10″ layer cake with no problems. I love that I can put everything together from fabric to thread and pattern and keep it all in one place. Then I can close it up and take it wherever I need to go. It’s also very handy to store everything in one place in between sewing sessions.

How how do you store your works in progress?

One thought on “Storing WIPs – The ArtBin Box

  1. I bought a lot of those years ago and have a cabinet that was made to put them in. It fits great under my cutting table! I store all my EPP, special projects, etc. They are great to keep scraps that are cut into squares. (I do not do a lot of that!
