It’s that time again…time to clean out the clutter in our sewing rooms and get them ORGANIZED!
Over the last few months, many of us have been trying to get our sewing spaces in order. For many of us, this is our biggest challenge. We are breaking it up into manageable tasks, so we can finally find lost fabric and have room to create.
Let’s start by sharing our BEFORE photos. 5 yards of fabric for the messiest one posted…LOL
Many of us are simply embarrassed by the mess in our sewing spaces….so find a “sewing buddy” to privately share your shame if you are not brave enough to post here…but then you don’t get a prize.
THE CUTTING TABLE
Our first task will be to clear off our cutting table or main work area. By doing this, you will have a large surface to sort your fabrics and various sewing notions.
My current cutting table is a medium-sized conference table (measures 36” by 72”) which holds 3 large cutting mats. Ideally, your cutting table should be placed in the center of the room where you can walk around it and cut from any angle. I also have my cutting table on adjustable bed risers so it helps my back.
Recently I purchased several industrial cutting tables, but won’t be setting them up until after the home renovation. So for the time being, my good old conference table will have to do.
Next up will be the 1st Challenge (Fabric Organization)…so be sure to check back!
Now let’s see those pics!
