    No not me, I currently sew in a house in the middle of building debris which drives me mad (as in frustrated), am so looking forward to the day when I can organize my sewing room into something neat and orderly not to mention more calming to the soul.

    well, i have plans of using up all my material before i die. but i sure would like to run into an estate sale that had lots of goodies in their sewing room like yours. i've bypassed a couple, before i got 'organized'. and now i am a firm believer in stocking up now, before everything inflates in prices more.

    Ok, seriously, I am one of those annoying neat people who doesn't do much sewing because I'm too busy 'organizing'.
    I am guilty of being organized too. My space is messing during a project, but I clean up before launching the next one. I'm with Ladyjanedoe.

    The problem is when we do get it straightened up and then start working on another project it doesn't take long to look like this again!!!

    I love both your rooms! My sewing room is more a storage area and I sew in the dining room. My room did look really
    bad until my DH told me he would set up my frame in the living room after I organized the sewing room. Took me a few
    weeks, but after purchasing 5 bookcases to hold the fabric it's no longer in piles and I can walk into the room! It won't stay that way long though. It's still trying to creep out into the rest of the house. My kids say I have a sewing house not a sewing room! I just tell them, yep, that's the way I like it!

    And I thought I had it bad. Mine needs to be sorted and put into one room instead of in totes all over the house. I have two rooms upstairs that will have to wait til the weather turns to spring as it has no heat up there. I have done some reorganizing in the small bedroom, but will need to change some things cause youngest daughter will be home for Christmas and New Years and will need the bed to sleep on. So tomorrow I will try to get my camera to work and show some of my hoard. Yes, I am a hoarder. Can't bear to let anything go-- but then I learned from the MASTER---MY HUSBAND. Never used to have so much til I started going to auction sales with him. Now I even go with out if I can.

    What's the problem? You have a floor. My husband says mine looks like a bomb went off. I bought 6 aprons panels last year for cookie day and cut them out. Cookie day never happened. I found them and made them up with the girls names on them . They loved them and it was nice going to my store and not leaving the house.

    I think your room is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and I think you are very brave for taking a picture. If I ever get my room straightened to look as nice as yours I will take a picture.

    WOW! I'm in awe of the amount of fabric you all own!! I don't have my own room so my things are here there and everywhere. I love that you all have organized chaos though.

    Love the term--organized chaos! Fits perfectly. I don't have near the fabric that you ladies do , but still need to organize periodically, if for no other reason but to remind myself what I have! If I can't see it, I forget it's there. How big would a room have to be in order to be able to see all your stuff?

    My stuff or My Mothers & mine combined? LOL Like there is a difference! Actually we still have some vintage fabrics from my Grandmother from the 60's thru 80's. She left us tons of fabrics & Quilt squares made for 15 quilts. We still have 6 of them left.....saving them for extra special relatives who were born after she passed in 1986.

    Back to the question.....If we moved it all into 1 room & had it organized on shelves????? probably 20'x30'.
    I joke with my Dad he should buy the foreclosed 3 Bedroom house next door to them & we will make it our Quilt house!

    It looks like organized chaos alright. Your all so creative in what you do so obviously this system works for you. Personally it would drive me nuts. I make a mess while I am working on a project but I have to tidy including vacuuming when I am done. My quilting friends make fun of me because I even bring a lint roller with me to classes. Thank goodness we all different. It makes the world much more fun. Thanks for sharing. Love all your beautiful fabrics.

    Organized or not organized~~~I am just envious of those that have rooms to work in. I did, until last August 1, when an evergreen tree fell on the roof of the sewing/computer room, putting a hole in the roof, causing big damage there and the other room of the addition. So, to make a long story short, repairs have been made, and am waiting for the texturing, so I can paint, new flooring, get trim back on windows and doors, and then I will move my sewing into the larger~~12x20~~room of the 2. I had previously shared my sewing with my computer in a 12X12 room. I can hardly wait till the rooms are done, and I can post pics of my SEWING ROOM. And until then, I sew in my dining room, sandwich a quilt on my kitchen table, have my tubs of material in upstairs bedrooms, and sewing equipment in my closet. Sure is a test of my memory skills to remember just where I put something. But, as they say, all good things are worth waiting for or something like that.
