    So, my new years resolution was to organize my craft closet and my desk at work. I have been working on taking my fabrics from the totes and piles they were in and wrapping them to store them vertically. I was amazed, I always thought that I didn't have much of a stash, but now that it is all out for me to see, I have a TON! It does help that my Joanne's is moving stores, so they are liquidating their stock (yesterday got a load of stuff for about 70% off average!)

    Improvements to the closet is mainly the addition of the bookshelf, but then I re-arranged stuff for more room in the large shelving.
    I'm sorry I don't have any before pictures, I forgot to take them in my excitement to get organized.

    My new fabric store! LOL

    Not to be nosey, but what kind of embroidery machine is that and how big of a design will it sew? I have a small Brother PE150 and it will only has a 4 X 6 frame. So actually my sewing area is smaller.

    My machine is the Brother Innovis 1500D. I got it off ebay, it has been a lot of fun so far! I believe it will do like 11x8 or something like that. I have not used the largest hoop yet, but we are getting to know each other.
