    I feel much better in my room when things are as straight as I can get them....a mess just makes me either want to run away or take time to clean it up.......I can find things much better when its all straightened out.....problem I find is that it doesnt stay straight even tho I do try to keep it that way.....I would love to have a larger room, that would help a lot in keeping it stgraight and prettier.......A few years ago, I found these great cabinets at Home Depot for a hundred dollars each..I got 2 of them, and then spent a lot of dollars at the dollar tree buying poster board and putting all my fabric on those boards, lining theim up in the cabinet liike books on a shelf........took time to do, but it is so much better now..I can find and get the fabric I want to use....and these cabinets have doors so the fabric is protected from the sunshine...

    I wiah I had 1/10 of your fabric stash and I wouldn't care if it was organised my room my mess fabric is so expensive in the uk that i have a small stash probably visiting florida in Aug/Sep so aiming to buy some and bring it back. Last year only managed one kit from Magrietta in St Augustine, as my boys wanted trainers and jeans bought for them. Solved that problem going to take both of them and their girlfriends with us this year so my luggage (and my husbands) allowance is all mine. Yippee

    My garage is empty of fabric; however, my sewing room and 5 closets in other bedrooms are over flowing. I know where all “my tools” are.

    My sewing room"s" are not quite that disorganized but at least my fabrics are very organized. At least once ever 18 months I take them all out refold and color coordinate them all. I call it my "stash bash". It takes several days, all day long, to refresh everything and put it neatly away. My ladder is my best friend during this time. The rest of the room,well, it could use a lot of work. I have my Grace Frame in one room and that room also has my deep freezer and is a storage room and it shows. My sewing studio houses several of my 13 sewing machines and my fabric stash and much more. Once in a while the floor is vacuumed and all the threads are up. That only last a few days. So I would consider my sewing studio Organized Chaos.

    I do have a messy sewing room but after each project I like to organize everything before I start another project. I am so OCD it even drives me crazy. Looks like you have tons of fabric.

    I am hoping next year to finally finish some half started projects. I thought I'd have more space if I could finish at least 3-4. I have fabric everywhere.

    Mine stays pretty organized, but someone just looking in would probably see chaos

    I wonder sometimes out of all the ladies who have posted on the board in the past are still with us. The board, to me, doesn’t seem to have the same feel to it I come on here less often than I used to, but maybe it’s just me bc I’ve gotten older
