Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Here is my newly rearranged sewing area. My fabrics are stored in the laundry room next door. I didn't have room for it all here. My kids helped me to rearrange and paint. Love the area!
To have your quilted stitches more clearly visible on lighter coloured fabrics, pull the thread slightly more taut than usual.
we just moved from TN to CA. when we looked at the house we live in now i went into one of the bedrooms and it had 1 wall with floor to ceiling shelving and the closet is all shelves. i knew that this had to be my new sewing room!
Congratulations on finding the perfect home for your sewing:) Check out the recent work l did to my laundry/sewing room to make it even better in my blog on Myquiltplace( check on my profile page). l'd been gathering ideas for years to use, and you may find something helpful.
i looked at your pictures and it looks like you have a great sewing spot. i can keep mine that neat to until I start a new projects and then it looks like a hurricane has hit!
l always tidy AFTER l'm finished a sewing session. A flat plastic hinged box l call my "project box" is where current parts/pieces go ( those not on large or small design wall). That way nothing gets accidently folded up into a sheet when doing laundry,only to be found 2 wk. after l need it, lol.It gets pretty messing while quilts are "under construction":))
my only problem would be i would probably lose the notebook.
i have shelves from floor to ceiling so i bought a bunch of baskets to try and keep organized.
labels on the baskets or the shelves would be good.
i think a dresser is a good idea, but i would get the biggest one i could fit in the space i had. that way you would increase your storage space too.
I tried storing my fabrics in a dresser and discovered that the fabrics began to smell of mildew. I wasn't impressed. I got rid of the dresser and put my fabrics on open shelves and cupboards and I haven't had any problem since. Good luck, what ever you do.
