    Smile Working next 2 weeks to orginize the studio.

    I hired my daughter to help me get the fabric in some kind of order. This last month I have given away 2 sewing machines working. And lots of fabric. Of my 3 girls only this one has shown interest in sewing. She found a panel to made her Boston a quilt. Stayed up until 3 am and finished it. Then came back for another panel for a pillow case. I have 2 weeks off and plan to live in the studio.

    I have the same goals as you! We are closing on a new house right after Christmas. I've already selected new shelving so once it's all set, I can hopefully move and organize everything all at once. I'm not really in the middle of any major projects right now so organizing my "stuff" will be my focus. Cannot wait until I can walk in my room and it is clean and neat!! Course I seriously doubt it will stay that way for long but I will be one happy camper!!

    The best part about organizing a new sewing area or reorganizing is rediscovering fabrics you bought and forgot!

    Yep everything is coming off walls and getting rearranged after the holidays . It may take me the entire month but so be it. I want a place that is organized and easy to get around. I am too old to be squeezing between the cutting table and the ironing board bending and wiggling to get to things I need. LOL

    I just went through that...it has taken me a week of working all day, everyday. There is still some fine tuning I could do, but I am amazed at how much things pile up. It is not fun, but when it is done, it is so much more fun to sew in a clean, organized area. I keep reorganizing thinking I can make more space...I think I may have gotten some this time.

    Congrats on your resolve to organize and happy thoughts as you work along with your DD. My area has been organized and it is so pleasurable to go there and be able to sew. I can find my tools, fabrics, and patterns. This should be a great way to cut down on duplicate purchases?!? Now, I need to tackle my ironing basket. Yes, I do still iron some items....especially pillowcases for that feeling of luxury and being pampered. :-)

    My sewing room is out of control. Too many rush finishes the last few weeks. I am off until Jan2. I plan on spending an entire day organizing and installing shelves in there. Hopefully maybe Thursday. I have a really nice shelf I bought for my tv that needs to be installed and I am going to put up a pegboard for my rulers. I can never find the one I want now. My SIL bought a yarn shop a couple of years ago and the store was briefly a quilt shop on the second floor. I inherieted a bunch of rulers that I never would have purchased. They are nice to have. Cant wait to get some organization to my room.
