Had my uncle build a bench on this wall. Now all my bins of fabric are stored on and below the bench where I can easily get to them. There are labels on the inside of the bins telling me what size fabrics are inside. I now have to find a place for the smaller bins that house bias, elastics, ribbons, and such. Because of all the windows, I'm short on wall space.

Linda, my sewing room has windows all the way around too, nice for light, bad for wall space!!!

I was just admiring the wonderful windows in your sewing room and thinking how lucky you were to have so much natural light...and then I read the problem with no wall space. :S DO you also have trouble with fabrics fading or do the bins filter enough life to control that?

Chocake2, so far the bins have filtered the light so there haven't been any fading. The only faded piece I've had was a damaged piece that I bought thinking I could cut around it. The bigger bins don't come above the wall line. The only ones above the window sills are the small ones with trims, elastic, etc. The baskets contain books, patterns, templates, and the like. Cut out projects are put in project bags and stacked on the tables or the dryer. I've also put them in archive boxes under the cutting table.
