    That is so-o-o-o-o-o over the top. If you are not seriously making a living in that space, too much money has been spent on a hobby.

    She spent so much time organizing that, she must have been too tired to quilt!

    It did look more like a small store than one of OUR rooms, didn't it? And does she actually use ALL of that stuff? Power to her.....I guess I do like my little bit of mess.

    Libby's got waaaaay too much time on her hands. I'd be afraid to do anything in that space. I'd be afraid to set something down in the wrong space.

    I guess she likes to organize - not have fun quilting! Oh well, maybe some day I'll get around to that.

    Really? Not in my life time

    I am pretty organized but that is way over the top. The money tied up in the supplies and organization is stagering.

    I am absolutely floored. I like her organization system. It's over the top for me, but there are some ideas that I might adapt for my craft room.

    This video came from Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims' show 'Quilter's News ' from today's e-mail I got.

    Since the room is only 14 x 14, they are showing how Libby Lehman maximizes every inch to get the most storage out of her room.
    It looks like her magnetic PT rack is on her longarm.
    Guess they figured we didn't need to see machines since they were showcasing the organization issues most hobbyist/designers deal with.
    Guess if I put out the kind of quilt designs and quilts she does, I would be that organized, too.
    Different strokes for different folks.

    That is a bit tooo much - stuff and organizing- even for me. I do like everything being labeled though. Like the foam core used for ribbons, and fancy stuff. And like others have said ---- where is her sewing machine and sewing area?

    LAL should have been LOL. I really think this was put together just to show what could be done and that is it.

    My rooms are a mess but I do know which pile MOST things are in. Even at it's best I don't expect my work area to even slightly resemble that! I actually USE my room every day! :-D

    Things can become so organized that even the method of organization needs organization. Talk about micro-managing. And who has thousands of bobbins like that?

    I think this studio belongs to Libby Leeman. I saw some of it on The Quilt Show.

    I admit to being an organization junkie when I was teaching second grade. I have a more limited budget now, so I try to make do with what I have on hand so I have money for fabric.

    I have to admit that I liked the magnet bars with the wire mesh baskets and the labels in Libby's studio.

    Loved the music. It gave me an idea for my space - how to use a coatpeg rack I have and haven't used yet. I guess you can tell that she is in the business and needs to be that organized.

    When I read that the room was only 14' x 14' I about choked. I would love a room to be only 14' x 14' to call my own. I think if I had my own space, I would be able to take on some of those organizational methods myself. As it is, I am happy to be able to find my stuff, let alone worry about if it is organized. It was a cool slide-show though. One can only dream. However, I think if that was my room, it would too time consuming to keep it up.
