    Unhappy Had to say Good Buy to some dear friends today...

    Well, only temporary anyway. Started to pack up my sewing room today since we are moving next month. Got all my Quilting Mags, Books, projects and fabric packed up this afternoon. Now for the rest of the stuff in my sewing room. Granted, I do not have that big of a stash, but it is still sad to see it being packed up.

    At least I get to look forward to resorting everything out when I unpack it. Maybe I will be more organized that way

    My new sewing room will be a Dinning Room in the house. Can not get to attached since we will be just renting, but it is better than nothing Also, the thought of having to move in the future keeps the stash in check and I get to find all my UFO's when I pack/unpack

    A Bonus for moving and packing things up, get to take in my machine for a yearly maintenance and I am not going to miss it that much since I have no time to sew now anyway

    ah Julie I know of what you speak, as I am doing the same thing, but I so look forward to my new sewing room, it even has a gas log fire place and I will hang my flat TV above it, with a love seat sofa a perfect place to do some hand stitching. So much packing to do I hardly know where to start! Good luck with yours.

    Well I can say that makes three of us then Julie and Leaha as I'm also moving to a much smaller place , also renting and my sewing space will be in my living room , compared to my bedroom here, but like you said it's better then nothing.
    Wish you both luck.

    I am moving also. On the 26th, so Im looking at about 3 weeks with no sewing. The rest of my apt. is not so bad, but my sewing room is over whelming.BUT...Im not complaining, I need absolutely every single thing that is in there!! The best part of it is, where Im moving my sewing room is twice as big! YEY!

    I know how you feel. We just recently downsized. Not only did I have to pack it up but I couldn't take it all.

    Happy and breakage-free moving to all of you.

    It is amazing what you find tucked away when you have to turn out all the closets...That said, I recently unpacked a box I found in the attic which had been untouched since our most recent move, which was 16 years ago!! And I hadn't missed the stuff in that box one bit. (Granted, it was mostly knick-knacks and not vitally important stuff like fabric...)

    I am NOT moving, but I need to pretend I am and go through the drill! It would be worth it just to get everything back in order! Good luck to all of you...

    We are repainting and my bedroom was a big catch all. Had a path to get to bed! LOL Now, it is all clean and clutter free....but most of the stuff I took out is in the LR. I'm determined to go thru all the stuff and get rid of what I don't need rather than "sticking" it back in my bedroom. At least I'm looking at it everyday and it's not hiding in corners and under the bed.

    I hope it's a happy move. You're friends will still be there for you, plus you'll make more in your new location. I understand how you feel, my daughter just moved from West coast to East. Wishing you happiness in your new home.

    I enjoy moving every once in a while. I find things I forget I had. I hope it works as well for you!

    I recently moved from CA to AL and had to pack for the move. Brought a sewing friend over, and we sorted and purged and shared and laughed over 20 year old lace (which, by the way, I just added to an outfit for DGD birthday!).
    It took over 3 months living with my DS and DDIL til I found a new home and unpacked. Boy what fun discovering all my stuff again! I have a great new room with it's own bathroom/dressing room and it is really large with 2 windows. I am truly blessed! I sew for others, ME and do a little quilting, having sew much fun! Good luck with your moves, ladies, and enjoy unpacking ! Linda

    Me, too. We have our home on the market right now and waiting . . . We haven't looked at the other end as yet, waiting to see what happens with the first Open House on 4/1. Meanwhile, Lady Lucy (my machine) is up and some of my fabrics and UFOs are available. However, the bulk of my stash is already packed. A friend is the recipient of some fabrics, etc. as she is involved in making charity quilts. The house selling could take some time, but we are hopeful. I really just want to the move to be over. I/We have passed the 3/4 mark but feel we need to move closer to one of our children. Better now while we are able, than later when forced. Quite weary at this moment.

    I'd hate to have to move my stash! However I do move it around continuously.

    Not "goodbye", just "see you later" Absence makes the heart grow fonder!

    I hear you. We were selling our house 5 years ago and I had to pack almost everything up while we were selling the house and put it in storage. Then it had to stay there for over a year while we rented and were looking for another house. It was horrible. I did take my sewing machine and some supplies. Then I went out and brought some things I needed and oh well I have doubles.
