What does everyone do with the smaller supplies on rolls - like tying twine, ply-grip, thread, etc.

I was thinking to mount them on a dowel to make it easy and organized.

I have my button twine on a string hanging so I can pull off what I need easily. Spring twine is hard to hang unless you get a big reel. I use to buy ruby in a 50 lb reel but not any more. Not enough pieces get resprung anymore. Most other small stuff I have on a shelf next to the work areas.

This is my favorite way to store pli-grip. A wide strip of Velcro on a piece of panel board to keep the Pli-grip from exploding when you open it and getting all tangled up. I have heavy pli-grip on one side, and lightweight on the other. And a pair of old scissors for cutting it.

A very effective way to store pli-grip Dennis.  You have both heavy and light weight.  Is the heavy weight used when the fabric and tension  (large panel coverage) is involved?

I was just wondering what drives the use of the heavier?

Anyway good organization!

Mainly use the lightweight pli-grip on thin fabrics, heavy on everything else.

My rolls of ply grip come with 3 twist ties around each roll. I take two off and use only one twist tie around each roll, and hang them from a shelf bracket I have attached to the wall. This keeps them from unraveling.

I like having an old pair of scissors with the roll. I usually spend a few minutes looking for where I put them.

Other rolls of stuff I have on a shelf. I use masking tape on some to keep the ends from unraveling.

I put lines of hot melt glue across both sides of my rolls of chip strip, aka, cardboard tack strip, to keep the roll from falling apart.
