    My sewing space is a corner of our family room. My stash is stored downstairs in a spare bedroom.

    I found this little "ironing station" at our local Pamida store, on sale. It has been very useful! I used to press my blocks on an ironing pad that shared space on my cutting table, to the right in the picture. This is much better, even though the area for pressing is small.

    I used to have some sewing stuff in the closet to the left, which is mostly a food pantry. At the hardware store, I found this hanging shoe caddy, which is much better. I am an "out of sight, out of mind" person, so the see-through pockets are perfect.

    Oh, I wish I could find something like this! We keep our ironing board up all the time to iron shirts and this would look so much better!

    Very neat. I love the ironing station. I made a plastic organizer for my sewing notions.

    Searched online and can't find anything like this (darn it). Is there a brand name on it? I would love to get one but nearest pamida store is 700 miles from me.

    What a neat little ironing station. Fits perfectly in your sewing area. I'm like you, out of sight out of mind. Might have to utilize one of those shoe organizers when I have accumulated enough "stuff".

    This ironing station is too meat. THe closest Pamida store closest to me has already closed. We need to find out the manufacturer, they might like to sell a few more.

    I do not have the brand name -- it was just on the box -- which is in the recycling now.

    Did you see that it has wheels, so I can move it around if I need to. I did not know I needed it until I saw it in the store.

    I have a plastic shoe holder on the back door of my sewing room for fat quarters. Works well!
