    Now do you see how tough this job is? I want to get the rest organized but have to get though the fabric next. DH says he thinks I need another peg board. Do you think?

    A lot of this was bought when money was flowing and we hadn't a worry.

    You can do it. I bought some fabric from a local quilt teacher that is only 70. She isn't expected to live. Her children where over whelmed by all her things. They where selling everything and just beside themselves. I don't want my children to have the same problem. After all this is organized I plan to down size. Believe it or not I have been giving things away. Not a dent. :roll: :thumbdown:

    both walls together

    What are the hours at your new store? Whew! That's a lot of stuff to organize and keep that way! But you're set for a long time.

    Wow, you really can get your creative juices flowing just looking at your walls.
    But I hope those pegboards are really well secured. Lots of stuff on there and it looks like you also have your embroidery unit hung. Might want to rethink that...
    Ask me how I know...

    Wonderful organization. Looks like you could start a sewing shop selling the extras.

    Yea you got to be careful hanging things, My friend and I where in her basement folding fabric and you guess it! Put it up on the shelving on the wall and that night while getting ready for bed .... it wasn't pretty. All the work we did can down with a thundering crash! :mrgreen:

    WOW! You did a great job!
    I think I dare not put everything in sight, so my DH does not "see" everything! So use drawers!
    Hahahaha!
    I loved seeing your spools of thread, are beautiful!
    A hug!

    if you moved your thread spool holders and mounted them on the wall it would free up some peg board space. My thread holders like yours have screw holes in them you can mount them directly on to the wall. Just a suggestion
