    I'm so excited! Going to Ikea with my sisters and brother in law today! Has anyone ever gone there and got anything they used for their quilting obsession there. I was there once and there is a lot of stuff to look at. Just wondering if anyone has found anything they used for quilting whether it be for storage or sewing.

    They do really good storage units that are useful for quilting. I have also bought fabric from there for backing, and they also do a 100% cotton thread, but limited in colours.
    Other than that I hate the place. I cannot do with having to walk through the whole store when you know the thing you want is at the final department, and there is no short cut. I have also never been able to find a car space near the entrance. Don't go there unless I am desperate.

    My sewing desk is a little smaller than this one, bought it at IKEA years ago and it's great. Sure wish I had some extra room to add the cubes like this gal has, they are so handy, colorful and neat.

    I have many of their colorful plastic totes in several sizes, the ones that have a white cover with a little hole in the middle, usuall find them in the kid's area. I have about half of my stash in the, they also stach so neatly. Sometimes there are fabrics they are colorful but a bit thicker than what we're used to, think they are mainly for decorating.

    I got three tall CD cases at IKEA to hold my fat quarters and half yards. Love them! They fit over the baseboard for security.

    I got a tall cabinet with lots of drawers, sort of like a lingerie chest. Great for storing small items. Bottom drawers were a bit deeper, I use for 'filing' storage of FQ's. You would store them upright.

    I bought several of these:

    They are great....even better than the bendable light you attach to your sewing machine! Plus I can use them when I am doing any hand sewing. I have given several as gifts as well.
    You're going to have a great time at IKEA!

    I have two ikea bar units as a cutting table and one of their little drawer units on casters that holds my thread and I can pull it round to my left to extend the surface when quilting a large quilt http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-57422-1.htm Ikea are unsurpassed for storage solutions! PS the hanging rails also came from Ikea - check out every department, including the kitchen ware! I also have cutlery trays I used to hold bits and pieces, think they were 50 pence each (around 75 cents?!)
