Design Wall and Sewing Corner Clean-up!

This week the majority of my sewing time was spent decluttering my basement sewing corner.  I think my sewing clutter multiplied when I wasn't looking (wink).  Sewing amongst too much clutter was not pleasant. I was recently motivated by Teresa over at Fabric Therapy when she reorganized her Quilt Cave.

The decluttering and reorganizing process was a real chore as I dislike doing it but love the results! Therefore, visualizing sitting down to sew in an organized space was my motivation.

I sorted all the notions, etc. and categorized them in their own containers which are inexpensive Glad or Ziplock containers.  They are lightweight and see-though.

Items still handy in cabinet which is behind my chair.

Maybe one day I will get around to labeling the containers, but for now my time is better spent working on the quilt!

Reorganizing still in progress.  Piles and baskets of fabric and to do projects were not in view of the camera.  Haven't touched the fabric, patterns & notes, and buttons yet!

Maybe others have accomplished more sewing this week. Check out more Design Walls at Patchwork Times hosted by Judy L.

  1. What a beautiful, organized sewing space! It makes me want to come over, plop down, and start sewing!!! I love your use of the Gladware containers...they are inexpensive, widely available, see through (so don't have to be labeled), and come in such a nice variety of sizes. Thank you for sharing and spreading the news about the joy of working in a de-cluttered space (and thanks for the shout out!).

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
