I use one of those "clips-over-the-door hangers", you know that kind that holds like 6-8 hangers with clothes on them. I use it to hang my "To Fix Pile"
I was forever laying things on the sewing table with the intention of mending or altering them, but as they got in the way of "actual sewing" I would move them elsewhere and they would never get done, and then I would have stuff lying everywhere.
So now I hang them on the front of the closet door on this hanger.

Now I always have everything that needs to be mended or altered STARING AT ME, and Oh, Yes...all in one place! It's very effective, I have actually fixed something this week...

Thanks for the tip! I cleaned up my sewing room today and added one to my closet door. Unfortunately, I've filled it up already. :-( As a corollary tip, I gathered up a work in progress, put all its ingredients in a bag and hung it on the hook, too. No more works in progress lying around on my cutting table!

That's a great idea! I am so sick of all the piles in my sewing room, sigh.

I love these over-the-door hangers [they are great for my full-length garments that would drag on the floor in the closet]. Good tip...I too seem to use the 'I'll do it later' method on mending...I'll see if their stare works, hehe. Thank you :)

I subscribe to both the "I'll do it later" and "Out of sight, out of mind" methods, so this idea would probably work for me, too. Maybe.... I'll give it a try. Thanks!
