  • Keeping your Quilt Block in the Order you want them.

    I don't know about you but once I have finished with all my blocks and have them in the order I want them in on my quilt wall, I have a heck of a time keeping them in that order when I need to sew. So instead of the little round labels or post-its that everyone else likes to use I use the photo/scrapbook...

  • Keep your pins handy

    I already had this spice rack, but I didn't like it for spices. As I looked at it, I saw that it would be good in my sewing room. Now I have all of my different kinds of pins stored on a shelf right above my cutting table. Even though the front is clear, I taped a sample of the pin that is inside...

  • Re: Tips on Storage Ideas

    I recently purchased a Hang-up home organizer from Thirty One. It works perfectly to keep my current project and upcoming projects organized and I can write what I need to purchase directly on it with dry erase markers. It saves space, keeps me organized and works as a quick reminder of what I need when...

    [quote user=" LaJuan Sukochi Lee"] [quote user="Sheila"] Carol - Lucky you having artistic talent, too! I'm jealous. Thought I'd share a find I made yesterday at Staples. In the section where they have all of the storage crates, totes, etc. I found plastic boxes that are the...

  • Labelling storage

    Just saw a show today on tv showing the use of chalkboard contact paper and thought about our sewing studios, and all those boxes, clear plastic tubs etc. we use for our fabric storage. Just cut a rectangle of this awesome sticky back chalkboard, write your title on label, and best yet- it is re-positionable...

  • How to organize projects

  • Storing Fabric

    I cut acid-free mat board into 6 x 12 (approx) rectangles and simply wrap fabric (1/2 yard cuts and larger) around the bolts. To hold the fabric on the "bolt" I simply snap a rubber band around the top and bottom. Then, I store them on closet shelves by color...so easy to find what I am looking...

  • Organization

    I do about 3-4 shop hops annually so I need to keep the patterns and fabrics received organized. I purchased a 3 ring binder (soft sided) and plastic sheet protectors. When each shop gives a pattern and fabric, I slide them into a separate sheet protector in the binder. I also have a sheet (or 2) of...

  • Printer Paper Box Top - Great for organizing and storing work in progress!

    I work in an office and I have found that the removalable box top from a case of paper is great for arranging block segments, finished blocks, strips, etc. The box top measures 12x18" and is 3" deep. With limited sewing space in a corner of my bedroom, using the box tops makes it easy to store...
