How often do you tidy your sewing area

I try to keep my sewing shelves tidy at all times so that I don't have to waste time tidying them up. The area where the actual sewing is done is our dining table, so obviously I need to take the machine and the fabric off it right after I finish sewing (like Mommy taught: put away your toys when you are finished playing). The fabric etc. goes on the shelves, and so does the machine. Sometimes it stays (covered) on the side of the table if I intend to start again soon. There is also the big fabric container with the stash - that one needs tidying every few months.

I tidy every day as I have customers coming in often. The rulers I am using stay on the cutting table until I finish the project and since I have a large cutting table it will also hold my cut pieces until I sew them together. I do keep a project cube that holds the extra fabric and pattern until I finish to a flimsy stage. I also vacuum every day as I certainly do not want stray threads to get picked up into a customer's quilt.

I'm another one that only cleans after a project is completed except for a quick vacuum now and then during the project. I never realized how much fuzz is produced once the batting is sandwiched in until I got rid of the carpet in the sewing room and replaced it with LVP flooring. Now it really shows the little fuzz balls everywhere.

Mine can look like a cyclone went through while I am working on a project, I tidy up, put everything away when I finish a top, before starting the next ( cyclone) project
