30 Days of Sewing Room Organizing

Share the love!

Do you feel like your room is always winning?

And it’s not really in a good way?  I totally do!  And, since I have moved…the sewing room is totally unorganized and a mess.

This month long series is just for you!  There are 30 days of topics that will help you figure out what is what and where it should go….. back into the room or leave you forever.   Don’t worry, you are totally not alone and we are here for you!

This is not an easy journey for a lot of the creative minds… mine included.  I find I have fits of organizing and a total bomb went off.  There isn’t a rhyme or reason to it.  Most of the time it’s after a few projects are made that the cleaning and purging happens.

30 days of organizing your sewing room

So- figuring you might be in a similar boat, because during the holiday season thread and fabric is tossed into the wee corners of the sewing room and the piles reach the ceiling or the next shelf above it.

Yup. You totally know what I’m talking about don’t you?  I can see the light bulb go on and the looks around the room when you slip into your creative space making sure no one can see what lies behind the closed door….. or on the table.  or on the floor.  or in the corner.

So– here it is:

Every day there will be an inspiring post or helpful hint to get us all organized by the end of the month and ready for some fun sewing….for ourselves!
Now is the time to get things together and ready for your next creative adventure.
Can’t wait to see what you do!

    The links are not working! I can’t click each day to read the article. Difficult to find it without the links working on this as it says it should.

    Wow Irene, your room looks very spacious! How big is it? Mine is a small bedroom so I sure wouldn’t have room to use big buckets for trash, recycling, etc! I have just a tiny trash can. Isn’t it wonderful to have a crafty husband though! Mine knows how to do many things too though he hasn’t made any of my sewing furniture. All of it are thrift store finds or hand-me-down except for my heavy duty shelving. I also use old containers to keep my supplies sorted. The zippered plastic bags that sheets and comforters and stuff like that come in are great for my ribbons, trims, and lace. Some of my buttons are in bead boxes where you can sort them by color, shape, or size. (My kids used to play with them when they were little, sorting all the colors for me!) Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    I am a member, but sometimes I can get to the daily printable planner pages and sometimes I cannot. Logged in and could not find these pages on any of the drop down lists. Not sure if all of your pop up ads are causing a problem with my firefox browser. Please advise where I can look for the printable pages as a member. uid=LauraMM Thanks.
