Our Sweater Boxes
Fabric/Sewing Supplies Storage Problems Answered
I am a machine embroiderer, sewing enthusiast, and also a quilter. With each of those comes specific items that go with them but not always the others so separating them is necessary. The one thing they all share is the need for fabric ~ LOTS of fabric.
To keep my fabric organized, clear from collecting dust, easily stored rather than having huge piles loose on my shelves, the entire line of clear storage containers are awesome. The majority of my larger fabric pieces as well as premade items such as aprons, towels for bath and kitchen, and children's clothing items to do machine embroidery on, the sweater boxes are perfect to use. I can sort things by type (ready made things and fabric by color or type of fabric)
All of the Clear Storage Boxes are just wonderful for keeping my sewing room organized, and the biggest plus is the fact they are all easily stackable and with the indented lids and feet on the bottoms, the don't slide easily.

Sweater Boxes...not just for sweaters!
I bought these sweater boxes to store and separate my center materials in my classroom. I could not find this size box anywhere else, and it holds my things perfectly so that my students can find what they need! I will just pop the lids on for summer storage. Love these!

Deep box for records
I bought 2 deep sweater boxes for my record albums. I had to buy another because records don't fit spanning the short side ( the bottom measurements are shorter than the top measurements?). But they fit beautifully spanning the long side. Actually this is better because each box fits all I want to carry at one time (I'm strong, but female). And the shape makes it perfect for searching for a particular album--providing you ever want to do that. If you want the top to be secure while carrying records, then you'd better tape it. I don't need to. I am VERY happy with these boxes for records. And by the way, I love the container store.

I needed to get my fabric collection under control and chose the sweater boxes because I can see through them and because if I want more matching boxes, know the Container Store will have them. On the down side, the size is not perfect. Often, the box is off by just a few inches. I'm folding them approx 6x15 and set the fabrics on-end so that I can thumb through each box. Re folding all my fabrics was tedious but worth the effort! I love seeing my collection in the boxes!
