Sukochi, the cabinet in the closet is actually 16 cubes put together. I got them from Michaels. They run about $40 a cube, buy who pays full price? I got all of them at least %50 off. They have to be put together, but that is very simple to do, I just the philips head bit on my cordless drill. Each cube took me 10 - 15 minutes. These cubes are on sale right now %50 off. They have some other matching orgainzer things too. Today is the last day of the sale where they are on sale for %50 off and you don't need a coupon. If you log onto Michaels website they are right on the main page.

Yes it is time to control the paper clutter in the office space again.

Happy quilting everyone.

Everyone who replied.

Thank you so much for your comments and new ideas for sewing room layouts. I am fortunate to live five minutes from JoAnn Fabrics headquarters and a huge store. I always have discounts to apply to anything that I want to purchase that is full price. For that reason, I don't purchase bulky stuff ahead of time. Batting for instance. I have one of each different kind and when I need something I can usually wait until the store opens and go there to get it. I also have two quilt shops within twenty minutes drive. So, I let them do a lot of the storage.

thanks again

Judy

Barbara I love it.  It shows what a busy lady you are.  You are making me itch to get back in my room of doom and get to my little sewing area.  I have so much stuff on my sewing table besides the machine.  I love your quilts in process you are making.

Cadice what a great room you have.  Lots of windows and space.  Do you also have a long arm machine?  I have enjoyed so much seeing everyone's quilting rooms/spaces and now I'm going to give my mom her shower then see if I can fix or move something in my room.

How can anyone work in such organization?  Do you remember the movie remake of the Navy guy meets up with an old flame, they marry and have like 19 kids between the two of them?  She was a designer and the kids cleaned up her studio to be nice but she went ballistic because she couldn't find anything in the new organization!  That's me. Hahaha I just moved from one room to another and I'm off because I don't have all my piles started yet. LOL

frosted rulers would be one suggestion. change the light fixture to a 'school house' light fixture. that way your bulbs are covered by the fixture. and if it is large enough, you can put the energy effiecient bulbs in which give you more light.

Ok, here's mine. I just moved from a sun room to the basement. Our heat bills are outrages for that sun room so we decided not to use it this year. I moved right in the middle of Christmas projects and still haven't recovered. I was too excited about RR3 to waste any time organizing. I also have a spare room upstairs for all my fabric so I really have two spaces. I use sheets to cover my machines and stuff because it is dusty down here. I complained about the light so my hubby bought 12 daylight bulbs. Now he complains that when i turn them all on (frequently) I'm using 1600 watts. LOL Cant have your cake and eat it too. My hubby likes me to be with him to watch TV and I told him I have a lot of "baggage" if he wants me in the same room. ROTFLMAO

View from my lounge chair. 

Hubby, must be "George's" brother. 

Notice the treadmill and Nordic ski machine behind the ironing board!

 

One of my spare bedrooms turned into fabric storage. 

And I won't even show you what is left in the sunroom!  HAHAHA!!!!

Grandma Sunshine - that looks so homey!  I love it!  I need to take a picture of what I have been reduced to having for my sewing space.  I had had 3 rooms in the front of our house to use - I was getting them organized and looking great - then Mom came to live... I lost 2 of the rooms - the big ones!  I got reduced to a room for my stash and then my sewing machine got put in the back livingroom - I have a corner back there...It is very crowded and I am always tripping over one thing or another... it used to be the corner that I would hang my outdoor plants in so I had a nice light system for them - so I do have good lighting - just have to cover everything so the fur babies can't get there fur and dirty paws on it all - so then I have to lift that - figure out where the things are that I need... I have put a lot of nails in the walls to hold my patterns, rulers and stuff like that but it is so disorganized... I have promised myself I will figure something out to make it better this year... as I know this is what I will be using for a while... My stash room is a disaster and truly needs a good straightening up - if I saw it everyday it would drive me nuts - as it is right now I go in there and distroy is more trying to find things and leave as quickly as I can... but again have promised myself to pull everything out of there and then organize it as I put it back... that will happen in February - already told DH we are doing this...teehee... 

I love your hubby in the chair - looks like my hubbies chair...teehee... and mine - lol

I had the old original design that was very floppy. I added the Stabilizer Bar Kits 1 Pair-15" Bar $8.00+S&H $2.05 http://www.cherylannsdesignwall.com/parts.html and it made a HUGH difference in the stability. Hope this helps. Happy quilting.
