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?
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!
