Tips for Organizing for Quilters

Happy Wednesday! I hope your summer is off to a great start! I've been busy working on designing the patterns for our next fabric collection, doing a bit of household cleaning and organizing, and especially getting organized in the sewing room! I'm not sure why, but the beginning of summer always seems like a great time for me to get organized!

So...I thought a round-up post of my favorite ideas and tips on the topic of 


organizing was timely! The first post I want to mention is actually a series of posts I did a couple of summers ago on cleaning and organizing your sewing space. This post will actually also link you to several other posts I did on organizing, so it's a great starting place!  Find it here (or click on the photo above).

Love this post. But I have to say on the topic of 'organizing' your sewing....

I had several projects carefully stored in bins and zip lock bags. When a fire destroyed the upstairs and back half of our house at Christmas, the front part, where my sewing was, received only heavy smoke damage. All my fabrics and yarns, stored in bins and bags, survived just fine. Little if any smoke or water damage.

So there is something to be said for buying all those plastic bins!

this week I had a good sort out of my larger scraps and now have them in 10 fabric baskets one for each colour though black, brown and grey share a basket so they look good too but oh dear me take up too much room
