So sorry for the loss of your beloved cat. I don't really have a huge bedroom that my sewing is in but it is doable for me. I just took everything that was in the tubs out to my dining room so I could move around and I just started in folding the fabric that is on my shelves. I started out trying to organize by color, etc. but it got too overwhelming for me so I just concentrated on the folding. I have a 3 bedroom house and no children at home so the room was a blessing for me. I just wanted to become more organized - I didn't intend on starting in that room but it sort of just happened. So yes, sewing rooms can get complicated!! Thank you for sharing.
