    I was kinda looking for a spot on here were we could post our ideas for sewing/quilt room storage / organization / functionality.

    For example - When I purchased a bolt or warm and natural I posted here about ideas for storing it. I got a GREAT tip to buy 2 closet rod hangers and a piece of PVC pipe to put through the bolt.
    It has been WONDERFUL and it was an easy and inexpensive tip.

    While I really admire the people who have a lovely cabinet laden sewing room with storage and art on the walls and everything has it's place....I'm not there yet, and let's face it....we spend a lot of money on our quilting hobby (machines - FABRIC - notions - FABRIC - thread - FABRIC - more FABRIC)

    So I was wondering if people would even use a section like this? If there was interest perhaps we could ask for a section, or just add to this thread. I think we all can profit from finding easily accessible - inexpensive - time saving ideas.

    And why reinvent the wheel when someone else out there may have already found a solution you never considered? :)

    This is a great idea. Most of us are struggling to organize our sewing rooms. I just had my closet reconfigured for shelving fabric. I got some of the best ideas on this board.

    I don't have many original ideas, just a copycat. So, I'll be watching, learning from this thread.

    When I got a small roll of W&N from Joanns I hung it in my sons closet (he just turned 1 on sat). I have one of those closet systems that you can get at home depot or lowes that the shelves are adjustable. well I took the cloths rod ran it threw the tube roll and then with ribbon hung it on one of the shelves. so not only is it hanging but I can roll out as much as I need and not worry about it getting in my way. And I can take it down with ease.
