The procedure is simple.  Summon the private style sheet notebook with the
menu command:

Format -> Edit Style Sheet...

Once the style sheet notebook is visible, click on it to make it the
selected notebook and then perform the menu command:

File -> Save As

If you wish to make the style sheet visible from the front end menu

Format -> Style Sheet

you will need to save it in one of the following directories:

ToFileName[
  {$TopDirectory, "Configuration", "StyleSheets"}
]

or 

ToFileName[
  {$PreferencesDirectory, "FrontEnd", "StyleSheets"}
]

The next time the front end is launched, the notebook's file name will
appear on the menu.

You may store notebook level options within a style sheet.  They must be
applied to the prototype cell named Notebook that appears near the top of
the style sheet.
