Cleaning up my sewing space! January 2010
First off, Every person here, should own a crock-pot! LOL!
(Ya never know, you may get carried away, and loose track of time,
We don’t need any hungry significiant others going hungry..
Can you set aside 20 to 30 minutes on your area? a day or a week? whatever works for you and your circumstances..
Use a timer if it helps keep you on the project at hand.
Can you take pictures, share ideas with each other, what works,
what doesn’t work?
Let’s Start with Bonnie Hunters “Quilters Prayer”
And her Article on Stash:
Paralyzed By The Stash?
ONE way to fold your fabric. U tube video:
What way do you do it? I like the thought of cutting up cardboard, and stacking my fabric upright..maybe it will stay neater, for longer if i am not pulling out of the middle or bottom of a pile..
Whoever does it that way..please give us directions, and dimensions that work for you..pictures would be nice too!

I am in the middle of organizing pictures..i am not to crazy about flicker..
I have used Picasa so long, that i am spoiled with that program..bear with me on this...
Ready now or next week?
I think today, i am going to just work on the bookshelf/books,magazines and patterns..
Question: How do you store your patterns? and in What?
1.Remember to use coupons if you decide to get items for storage,(NO FABRIC! LOL!) from Joanns or Michaels..
2. Google "Current Joann fabrics Printable coupons" they will come up..print them and keep them in your purse!
3. Do any of you Freecycle? A great place to get book shelves, desks etc...you can paint them in the spring..if needed. Also, remember , you can get rid of items there too..! I moderate my group in my city. it is wonderful!
Happy Healthy,Organized New Year Everyone!!
