Organizing my sewing room was hard work. Trying to combine my things with both my grandmother’s and mother-in-law’s made for a lot things that needed a new how. Where did I put all of those notions?
Let’s start with the rolling wooden cabinet. This cabinet’s door is on wheels, when it opens, it stays open. Inside are four drawers.
The white rolling cabinet holds Coats and Clark type thread. I’ve been told that this type thread isn’t good for a sewing machine, so I don’t usually use it, but I inherited it, it’s still good, so why throw it out? I sorted it by color and stored it in zip-lock bags. The bin on top holds drapery making supplies.
Any tips on fabric organization? Where do you keep your extra fabric?
I’m pleased to say that I didn’t have to buy a single thing to use for organization. I either used what I had or used what I inherited from my mother-in-law. I’m really lucky to have all of these supplies on hand. Now I just need some time and motivation to sew!
