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
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 Kathy at Byrd’s Nest Quilt Shop at 386-615-8789 to learn more about the many amazing options available for housing your most precious sewing tools: your sewing machine and serger!
