TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR SEWING STUDIO!
We were looking through Inside the Creative Studio: Inspirations and Ideas for Your Art and Craft Space by Cate Coulacos Prato, and we picked up lots of quilt supply storage ideas for organizing or re-organizing a sewing/quilting area, and wanted to share them with you!
Here’s just a sampling from the book:
Vintage and contemporary fabric storage:
- Stacked on shelves by color or randomly
- Folded and stacked in wire rolling bins
- Scraps mixed in open bins like laundry baskets
- Folded and piled in enamel or ceramic vintage bowls and basins
- Rolled and put into cubbies
Quilting thread storage:
- Hung on wall pegs
- Contained in glass jars
- Held in printer or cutlery trays
- Stacked on spice racks
- Sorted in see-through bins or specially made drawers
Quilting tools storage:
- Scissors laid in segmented drawers, stored in vintage flower pots, and hung on pegboards
- Paintbrushes stashed in recycled cans, vintage pails, and flower frogs
- Stamps and stencils laid in flat baskets and blueprint drawers
- Dyes and paints held in colorful dishpans, plastic cutlery totes, and on shallow picture shelves
Sewing Machine and Serger Storage:
- Contact Barbara or Steve at Byrd’s Nest Quilt Shop in Palm Coast at 386-447-1103 to learn more about the many amazing options available for housing your most precious sewing tools: your sewing machine and serger!

We are very convenient now from all directions. Less than a mile off Palm Coast Exit # 289 off of I-95
Less than a mile off of Belle Terre - we are one block behind Walmart, around the corner from Golden Corral - and just a few doors down from Domonic's Deli (it doesn't get any better than that!).
Announcement! We are proud to announce we now carry a full line of Baby Lock Sewing and Embroidery Machines and of course the Baby Lock Sergers (you know the one I mean, whoosh............self threading!)
Yes, we are still a full line PFAFF Dealer (and proud of it!). We know you deserve choices and we want to put you in front of the machine that is right for you.
One more thing............when you purchase a machine from Byrd's Nest you get guide classes (at no charge) for as long as you need. Plus the sewing clubs will keep you motivated and sewing. We are always here to help you!

Byrd’s Nest Quilt Shop in Ormond Beach continues to be one of the largest quilt shops in Florida, if not the whole country. Over 5000 bolts of fabrics are always in stock with the inventory changing daily to accommodate the constant delivery of new fabrics, patterns and supplies. Located steps from the beach, the tropical influence is obvious when you step inside the door. The cheery staff and brightly colored samples invite you to spend hours browsing, shopping and getting inspired.
Be sure to stop in our Palm Coast location to further tantalize your quilting senses! This shop is stocked with collections of beautiful traditional and contemporary fabrics that are completely different from the fabrics in our Ormond location! That's right.....two distinct shops.....very unique choices in each shop!
Maps and directions to both shops are located in the ABOUT US section.
