Cloth racks

We had these specially made, two short ones (the type shown) and one tall one. They are very handy, as they allow one to wheel the cloth to a work table, unroll as much as needed, square it up with a cutting mat, and cut it off. This spares the effort of carrying the roll from the store room, which represents a considerable savings of energy as the weight of a full bolt is substantial.
