Red face Cleaning and re-organizing my sewing room/craft/office!

My sewing/craft/office had enough room for me to walk in the door and to my desk and sewing table. My dh takes things upstairs and just sets them on the landing so you have to step over them! So I called in my bf and we dug in. We had 3 garbage bags and burned at least 4 garbage bags of paper. We have moved my desk and sewing table around so that it is easier for me to sew and hook my sewing machine to the computer. Now I am waiting for dh to build me some shelves so I can get things off the floor. When it is done I will try and post pictures. My new motto is "When I get something out and am done with it I WILL put it away"!

Denise, who is the author? Need to see if my library has this book and I'm not finding it by the title.

Thanks,
Suzy

I just ordered it from Amazon. I C/P the title and put it in Google and it came up on Amazon.

The author was Carolyn Woods.

Lois Hallack has a book called Creating your perfect Quilting Space Sewing room Makeovers for any space and any budget weather you work in a corner of your kitchen or a full sewing studio make over of a garage space. Lots of photos and a worksheet to design the area based on your individual needs. She spoke at our guild meeting a couple of years ago.

I have this book and agree its one of the best out there. I used it especially when I was organizing my fabric, and its all pretty nice and neat. I also have to use my dining area in the kitchen to sew, so it make it easy to organize things so I could work better.

OK, I've been convinced! I'm headed straight to Amamzon for the 'must have' book. Thanks for the tip.
