    One of my "projects" of late is to make more storage/sewing space. I have gone vertical....I used to have my sewing machine/serger with a wall behind and realized if I moved those to the window, I could use the entire wall. I purchased some Azar peg boards from amazon.com and they are the best thing going....at least for me. I now have what I need at the cutting table, what I need at the sewing machine...but i have to be careful not to travel with tools...I am bad about that, and then they end up somewhere they should not be. I have tried to set up "zones"...cutting zone, pressing zone, sewing/serging zone, etc. They I purchased some plastic boxed with snap on lids, they are about 18 inches high and 9 inches across, nice size and will stack well. Each one has a different color of scraps in it....now I am waiting for my thread racks to arrive and that should help as well. It is always a work in progress it seems. But any vertical wall space is prime pickings!

    OOOOH I want to come and play at your house. My sewing room is only 11 x 11, forget getting a long arm in, but it is packed to gills and I need more space. Been here over 26 years and retired, so theres no new big room in my future. Im just glad to have a sewing room instead of 2 guest rooms.

Sounds like you have lots of fun stuff and a pretty big room to boot.

    Mine looks a lot worse than yours most of the time.

    I could be transplanted into your sewing space. Mine is so similar it is scary.

    Yep I think I am with you on that. Once in a while I like to clean up all the fuzzy stuff!

    Jere, that is too funny. I should have turned around and show the rest, but it is too unsorted to take a picture.lol Can't let that out on the net for everyone to see. One time I won second for the messiest bead room in our group.lol

    I agree with you Michellesews on the vertical space. I have my sewing tables against the wall too, one day I may change that. I am looking for good ideas for sure. Having only moved in a few months ago and then starting on Christmas sewing I haven't had a lot of time to really think of what to do. I like the vertical thinking. I also have a cutting table behind where I sit at the sewing machine and a table with a studio cutter on it next to that. I am trying to fit some more bookcases/storage cases behind maybe the studio table. I still want others to be able to come and sew with me so need to leave a spot for them

    I don't know if you can see the wire containers, I love them 15" square, black so I only see the fabric. They contain things so well and the piles do not fall into each other. I got mine at Target and put several sets together using cable ties, which Target did not have.
