We recently remodeled our kitchen, and when the contractor was about to throw out the old cabinets, I stopped him and had him hang them in my sewing room! No more totes with labels and digging through the to find my stash! Now, i have kitchen cupboards on every wall in my sewing room and all I have to do to find anything is open a door!  One wall holds cupboards that hold my stash, the next, patterns  quilting rulers, etc! Another holds threads... i love it as I can hide a TON of stuff :-)

Welcome, Cveins.  You make me want to remodel my kitchen just to get cabinets in the sewing room.

Welcome! Sounds like you have a quilting studio rather then a sewing "room". when I moved my sewing room into a larger room. I hung my rulers from nials on the side of my cutting table. And a place for my rotarty cutter right by the rulers. But, wish I had cabinets. Wow!

Welcome and I am glad you joined QCA, Cviens.  That is a wonderful way to reuse stuff you already have in the house.  Here I am using a dresser that was empty since my boys are gone to live their own life .  This is helping me sort out through my stuff and make plans for future quilt.  It is really a wonderful way to organize stash and scraps!
