I have never been to IKEA the size scares me a bit. Someday maybe. There is one not to far from here.

I assume you are going to tackle your sewing room organization? Bonnie Hunter and others are featuring their sewing rooms and you could pick up some tips.

I love IKEA's displays, storage ideas, kitchen stuff, etc., but I get claustrophobic when I want to get out. If you can find a salesperson, they know the shortcuts.

It will be fun for us to see your progress. I love going to IKEA, though I don't go often. I got 3 Alex drawers on casters from IKEA a few years ago. They fit nicely under the longarm and hold thread and stencils.

Don't forget to bolt that tall cabinet to the wall behind it, as Ikea suggests. Once it's full of fabric and stuff it will be really heavy, and could really hurt you if it fell forward while you were 'digging'.

Starting to look fantastic. You will have so much fun and feel so great when you get all organized.
