Fabric Die Storage

Our fabric dies are an investment, and they should last forever (or at least for a really long time!), so it's important to store them correctly.  Remember to keep them stored vertically and out of direct sunlight.  I've found 14" modular cubes are a great way to store dies.  Recollections cubes available at Michael's are available with different internal configurations and as your die collection grows, you can add more cubes.

It is rare, but people have experienced "slight bowing" in 24" long dies being stored vertically.  However there seems to be a correlation with direct sunlight and high temp. rooms.  Many of the people asked found the dies still work even with the bowing.  This unlikely issue should not lead you to store long dies flat.  You could, if space allows, store them on the short side, with the 24" length extending out.

It has also be noted that the foam can sometimes un-attach partially from the cutting surface of dies while stored vertical.  This is easily remedied by simple adding a bit of adhesive where needed.
