    Just a note...you all inspired me to refold and organize my fabric. I sure did not know I had so much...but most is done.
    Then decided to reorganize my sewing room since I purchased a new machine...and wanted to set up my 4000 for embroidery station.

    I have been working on this for 2 weeks....I will be glad when it is done and plan to post pictures...but don't plan to do this ever again. I have about as much in my sewing room as I can get...

    It is going to take me another 2 weeks to clean out the other room I piled stuff into that I need to sort even more.

    You are an inspiration...but if anyone is inspired think long and hard before starting. Hope I can find everything when the organization is finished. LOL!!!!!!!!!

    Can't wait til its done got to get baby projects done this week for shower on Sun. Just wanted to say thank you I think...no I am sure...I am slow, OCD, and ADD...so can't wait to start more projects...LOL!!!!

    thanks for listening...maybe tomorrow I will completely finish and post the pics....before I get unorganized.

    Congrats! Need to head down that path myself but am so intimidated by the amount of work! Probably wouldn't be able to sew for a month!

    What part of Tennessee do you hail from? I live close to Chattanooga.

    I just cleaned up my ongoing mess of sewing. What I found did it for me this time was shopping at 5 quilt stores in one day. The fabrics are folded up so nicely and stacked around. This was my inspiration, so in this case quilt shopping was a good thing for me, that time anyways.

    Glad you decided to tackle the room! Amazing what you can find in there that has been forgotten, or misplaced! Please do share pics with us too! :)

    Good for you! I'm looking forward to seeing your sewing room. I've been picking away at getting my sewing room picked up and not so messy. I start to work on it and then get sidetracked doing something else like sewing. Don't know what's wrong with me. LOL.

    BEWARE! CLEANING YOUR SEWING ROOM CAN LEAD TO NOT FINDING ANYTHING YOU NEED!!!!
    Now and then I have to clean out my sewing room because I can no longer walk in without tripping on something or knocking something over. Every time I clean it, it takes me forever to remember where I put things and some stuff I have yet to find from my cleaning last January. Maybe I'll skip it this year.... I can't sew when it's clean! I need the chaos.

    It feels good to get it all cleaned up doesn't it! I feel like I can work better in my sewing room when it is in good shape.

    You have a very nice room ( I just saw the pictures after my post). I love the way you painted your yard sale find. Very pretty.

    It is a huge job, but Soooooo worth it, I had the same experience a couple of months ago, it feels so good to be able to find something when I need it!! Great for you!
