    Cleaning and organizing sewing room

    Well I am trying to get my sewing room cleaned and
    organized, what a chore that is proving to be. I had no
    clue I had so many empty boxes of all sizes stacked in
    the room, but I know that the majority of those boxes
    was slipped into my room by my hubs, because I see
    HIS name on the labels.

    Granted some of the boxes I do want to keep, but not
    all of them. I guess he thinks if I want some I want them all.

    Hopefully though I will have gone through everything and
    sorted out what I need to keep handy and what can be put
    out of the way.

    I will TRY to post pictures IF I ever get it finished.
    Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.

    Just try to enjoy the process and not turn it into a chore, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Boxes can be recycled, maybe ask a grocery store.....

    Good Luck to you!

    Hang in there. My oldest son says your works space is a reflection of the condition of your mind. Cluttered workspace = cluttered mind. He is a neat-nick, but I have to agree with him, at least in part, because when I enter my Lair, I have to pick up and do all my mending and have it clean before start a new project. My storage is all organized and stays that way, but my work surfaces get cluttered when I go on a marathon sewing spree.

    My Granddaughter finally moved out and I now have a sewing room! Getting it organised was a big job but worth it. I don't know where I stored everything before, DH bought me some book shelves, great for books, magazines and of course the fabric stash. I have made 1 rule....... I must clean up before starting a new project.
    A Quilters fun is never done!

    I understand and remember where you put everything. That is my problem, clean, and organize and then I can't find anything I am looking for.

    If I have to clean before starting another project, I would never get anything done. I like changing between a couple of projects. - J

    I put away everything before I start another quilt. Room is so small nothing else would work.
    Glad you are getting your space organized.
