I don’t know about you but I fight(ignore) a constant battle re the volume of “stuff” in my sewing space.
A few months back my husband hit upon the idea of fitting kitchen units for storing all my fabric in, sadly I fail to keep my stash down enough to be able to successfully put it away and shut the doors! The long length of kitchen work top is fab for laying out patterns, and bags in process, however I fail to tick to one project at a tiem so it becomes cluttered.
Here are a few snapshots with some sewing studio ideas for storage (of course I would never move stuff around in order to take the pictures!!). I am fortunate to have lots of light, overlooking the garden.
I currently store my threads in a former fishing tackle box, but would love to have an old printing press tray mounted on the walls filled:)
Rather like Katherines🙂
Store my buttons, colour coded in glass jars
Generally I am not sentimental however this room hold memories,; this basket was woven, and lined by my Gran, and the flowers made by my then four year old.
The tin boxes were also my Grans, and contain yet more buttons (again Grans). My gran passed away when I was 18, I remember her with great affection and as a kindred spirit, she was very influential encouraging my creativity,
How do you organise your work space, I am particularly interested in ideas for reducing quantities of fabric?!
PS Have you noticed I have successfully moved to vickymyerscreations.co.uk, thanks to the great people at wordpress.com for their support in moving my subscribers across.
A glass or two of wine later and I appear to have made a rash purchase of my own domain...
