    My husband hung peg board and helped move furniture.
    Now to put shelves in the closet and organize this mess.

    What an inviting space! I see we have a lot of the same machines:-) I wish I had a place for peg board, that looks so useful.

    Love the spaciousness and neatness. Your closet doesn't look a mess to me; I bet you'll organize pretty fast after you get shelves installed. Which of your machines do you use most often?

    Isn’t that a wonderful feeling...I always feel that I get a little creative boost when I have a clean sewing room and can find my gadgets. Looks like you made some nice changes.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great job!

    I see two more lovely machines in the closet! Love the wire shelf systems that can be rearranged for sewing room closets. Once they are installed it's easy to re-organize later. We have them in all our closets and garage.

    The Featherweight is my favorite but I also use the 401 and 500 on a regular basis. The other day I used the 301 and wondered why I don't use it more often. I guess they are all my favorites. Lol!

    It looks fabulous. I think I spot a Singer 401A.. I love those machines as they never break, have great stitches and just last forever.

    You will love the pegboard. You can use pegs and pieces of wood to make shelves. Here is a picture of mine.

    Oooh come do mine! Wait a min, I don't have a sewing room! lol I see you have a 301...401a...not sure what's in front of 301 on long table. I recently rescued a 401a in a cabinet from hurricane Irma... seems to work but can't get that bottom white knob to move. I need to find a manual for it. Meanwhile your room looks nice!
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    You could install a clear shoe bag--about 20 pockets--instead of a peg board and you would be able to find your tools just as quickly.

    Those peg boards look great! You can organize just about everything on them!
