Getting Organized! April 20 2014

Calling all quilters!  Whether you have a fabulous studio or borrow the dining room table in order to fulfill your quilting passion,  we can all agree that staying organized is a good idea.   Less clutter equals less stress and more efficiency.  




Let's cut to the chase.   Here is an example of where some of us may have been at one time or another, and it's not so great.  Agreed?  

 Why on earth would anyone take a photo of... okay.   Let's move on.



And now.....  A place for everything, and everything in its place....


WARNING:   VIEWER DISCRETION STILL ADVISED (this could be hard to live up to, but you have to admire it)



We mean WOW WOW WOW!!! HOT DIGGITY DOG DIGGITY!!!  But maybe you wouldn't feel good about getting down to some BIG TIME sewing... too frightened to mess it up???   Maybe you don't have that much space.  You have to admit, it's gorgeous!

Inexpensive containers are available at any dollar store and can help you achieve the old saying,  "A place for everything and everything in its place." 

Pegboard is a great way to store rulers, templates, scissors, rotary cutters and containers which hold even more items.   Dorrylu of NY does a pretty good job of it, don't you agree?


What matters most is that you are content with your sewing space and getting optimum use and efficiency (there's that word again)!!

We're open to suggestions.  

  • How do you stay organized?  
  • How do you keep patterns ready for viewing and using?  
  • What about your bobbins and thread?    
  • What do you do with your various sewing machine needles?

Any suggestions you have for organizing are most welcome.
