first, you must decide what kind of sewing you will be doing. Quillting, clothing, home dec? I find that getting supplies from others who do not use them any more is the best. Join a sewing, quilting club and listen to your fiber arts friends about what they are doing for storage, sewing etc. I belong to the American Sewing Guild and at each mtg someone brings supplies, books, magazines, fabrics etc.that they no longer use to just give to someone who will use them. I have been sewing for 40 years and I will never be done reorganizing myself.
