Q: I have several china place settings and serving pieces that I received for my wedding. What is the best way to store these items when they're not in use?

Martha stores her china with felt rounds between the dishes to prevent scratches and wear. To make a felt round, trace the outline of a dish with a sewing pencil or tailor's chalk onto a piece of felt, and cut it out with pinking shears. Cover each dish with a felt round before you stack another one on top of it, and be sure not to stack dishes more than six high.
