Pattern Storage

I was reading a blog last night & a question was asked about pattern storage. I thought people might like to see what i do. Years ago i saw my friends patterns just left in the little resealable bags & put in a box. Her bags were getting raggy from usage. Got to be something better i thought. I have to buy these folders for my kids for school & decided they'd do me. They are A4 size . The pattern sits nice & flat. Then i store all the patterns in magazine holders which then sit nice & comfy on my bookcase. I store them according to catergories ie: bags, wallhangings, stitcheries or if i have a lot patterns from just one designer they get a box of their own. Also the folders do double duty when i'm working on a project. I can put the fabrics ect in the folders & if i'm off to sewing it's all there together. My books & magazines are all also stored in the holders.
