I used to store my interfacings in cardboard mailing tubes. However, I had to open several tubes to find the interfacing I needed. If I bought several yards of much used interfacing, it would not fit into the tube. So, I started rolling the interfacing on wooden dowels so that they'd be visible. I hold them on the roll with velcro wraps. I bought 48" dowels and had the kind people at Home Depot cut them to 36" and 24" lengths. Now I can see at a glance exactly what types of interfacing I have.
