I don't think I have ever heard anyone say that their sewing space is perfectly organized, usually it is quite the opposite. Recently I spent several days going through everything in my sewing room and I mean EVERYTHING! I like to be organized and my sewing room was only somewhat organized - it was driving me a little crazy. I would love to say it is perfectly organized now, but I don't know if that is possible, but I think it is close.
This organizing frenzy started when my husband agreed to help me make a custom sewing machine table (see the previous blog post). I knew my part in this project was going to be making my sewing machine table pretty and I think I did a pretty good job, but then the thought of putting a pretty sewing machine table in a cluttered room was suddenly not okay with me. It was time to work toward having an organized sewing room!
I can say that the time I spent going through everything in my sewing room and organizing it all was worth it. I get a Cheshire Cat smile every time I walk into my sewing room now. It is so nice to know where everything is and I feel like my mind is more clear to design and to sew!
In case you might want to organize your sewing space or even just a part of it, I thought I would share some of my ideas for organizing my sewing space. Over the next few weeks, I will share the ways that I organized my fabric, sewing patterns, bag hardware, and helpful hints to make it faster to get to the fun part of a project - the sewing. I hope you can be inspired to do a little organizing and gain the benefit of a Cheshire Cat smile and a clear mind when you walk into your sewing space too!
