    The work has begun!

    The work on my new sewing studio has begun! Two weeks ago we took out a door, and the other day we built shelves along the back wall. Eventually all the containers will match, and I think I'll add more shelves above the drawer units. I know I shouldn't use plastic containers for fabric, but where I live in a pecan orchard, it is so dusty and the ground is so sandy, that it's the only way to keep the fabric clean. We will only be able to do one project a month, but I am so happy that now I can go get the rest of my sewing stuff (45 years worth) out of storage and know where to find things. DH has been a great help in getting this going. Still a lot of building, wiring,etc. to go. Know this doesn't look like much yet, but I'm excited!

    I think it's going to be great, and at least you are moving forward. Who says it's bad to store fabric in plastic containers?! If it is, then I bet at least half of us here are in violation. I think these types of containers are great for organizing fabic, don't apologise!

    I agree with Canada Kate don't apologise for the plastic containers for I aslo have to use them , just to much dust around what with dirt roads around me, they'll be fine . I love your new room what a Blessing your dear Husband is for getting this fixed up for you, have fun with your new space.

    It is going to be terrific when it is done. You are off to a great start. Plastic containers - are there some quilt police nearby????? I'm sure your fabric will survive !!!

    Looking good, it will be great when you can get it finished up. Ploastic totes are okay to use, keeps the dust and dirt off the fabrics.

    You have such wonderful freedom in spreading out your quilting supplies and fabrics!! Excellent.
    I think that fabrics need to breathe....so why not allow yourself to enjoy a few fabrics from the plastic bins and put them on display..... and create a ladder to hang fabrics out from time to time, rotating them from plastic to ladder, back to plastic for storage. It might keep your fabrics fresh. You might be inspired by seeing your stash from time to time. Right?!!

    Congratulations. It really is going to be lovely.
    I kept mine in plastic becasue of wet basement. Now all waterproofed and in the works too.
    Had it rewired with all new wiring too and got in some cabinets. Still work in progress. Like you said takes a lot of time.
    Happiness is better than drugs! Won't be long till it is complete, and you can fully enjoy.
