I hung a large pegboard in my sewing area. It's great for hanging all kinds of things and with different sizes of pegs and being able to move them around I can gets lots of things in an easy to see and reach place. It frees up table and drawer space and provides quick acess to lots of things I use often.

Hi Mama Joy and welcome to QCA. Great tip I wish I had a place in my sewing room to hang on but my sewing room doubles as a spare bedroom.

Welcome Mama Joy and thanks for the tip! I'm going to see if I can find room on one of the walls in my sewing room! It sounds like a very good way to get things off the floor and off my sewing table that I'm always having to move around.

Welcome Mama Joy,

I use a peg board in my sewing room as well. It's not on a wall though. My room is half of a larger room so I put the pegboard on the back of a cabinet I bought at WalMart instead of the cardboard it came with. This cabinet serves as a room divider I have storage on the inside and outside of it.

I'm lucky to have a separate sewing / craft / genealogy / sewing / storage / used to be bedroom ... room ...  so needless to say, it's full.  Furniture covers most of the wall space, so I hung my peg board behind the door.  It's close to where I cut, so my rulers & cutting tools are neatly out of my way,  yet handy & best of all, have a place to live when I clean things up.

Welcome Mamma Joy! What a great tip.

Since I don't have a lot of wall space because of windows, I took an old metal ironing board and took the legs off of it. I then spray painted it to match the room. The holes in the ironing board act like a peg board. I can hang hooks and baskets on it to store things just like a peg board. I can also put magnets on it to hold notes. When I find another free old metal ironing board, I can put up another one in a narrow wall space. Hope this helps someone with little wall spaces.

My sewing room doubles as a guest bedroom -- but I took the mirror off the dresser, hung my pegboard where the mirror was and stored the mirror behind the dresser.  I covered the dresser with a sheet of chipboard and put my cutting mat on top of that -- makes a great cutting center and I use the drawers to store my fabrics, with all my rulers and cutting tools hanging above on the pegboard.

When guests come, it's no problem to reverse the process, replacing the mirror on the dresser and storing my cutting tools and rulers out of sight, as we recently did when family came to stay for the holidays..  Of course, we don't often have overnight guests and we do have another guest bedroom, as well.  Just thought I would share.
