    Re: Rotary mat where to store it???

    My Mat is always on my cutting table......so it's been nice and "flat" for years now ( yay ! )
    I would really like to find a mat like Jenny has ( her new Olfa white one ( I think the it's purple / lavender & white ) ?? I need to go online and really look.....apparently I didn't spend enough time looking for this new mat.

    Speaking of new tools....I have decided to purchase 1-2 new tools etc. per week......so when I get my room done will have some new things to play with too !

    When my mat isn't on the table, it's behind a bookshelf where it stays nice and flat.

    I don't store mine at all. I leave it out on my cutting table. JCY

    I keep mine sandwiched between two filing cabinets and that keeps them straight. Every store I've ever seen mats in they are stored upright in racks and they never seem to have anything wrong with them.

I would not store them any way but flat.
    Hubbies tend to do that. Drives me nuts. ANY flat surface seems to be an open invitation for them to put something in that spot. I keep telling mine that everything has a home. Put it in it's home. He's got 3 huge tool boxes and about a dozen small organizers yet he still feels his tools need to be in every room. Don't get me started on the folded laundry.

    I have 2 tables in my room..6' banquet tables. One I have my machine on and the other is right behind me where I have my iron and pressing board. The pressing board stays there, and is perfect for just sliding my cutting mattes underneath it! Keeps them protected and flat and I just pull them out when I need them, slide them back under when I am done. A perfect set up in my opinion!

    I use a long skirt hanger, the kind where two thin strips of wood clamp together, and I hang mine in a closet that always stays cool.

    I have an enormous one that is something like 45" x 54". I stand it up behind a bookshelf.

    I store mine upright and flat against the wall, sandwiched between the wall and my fabric stash.

    I keep mine on on my sewing table when I'm not sewing. When in do sew I lay it on my bed out of the way. It's a bit of a hassle when I need to use it when I'm in the midst of sewing because I have to scooch my machine over to put the mat back on the table.

    I either leave mine on my cutting table or hang it on my pegboard. It stays nice and flat.

    I hang mine on the wall behind the sewing room door. I just put a picture hanger in the wall and I can hang two mats at the same time and they stay nice and flat.
