Organizing Tips

Welcome to the third week of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today is all about organizing tips.

First, the thread.  I have a LOT of thread.  In order to organize it all I have two thread cabinets from Arrow.  They allow me to store all of my thread as well as give a place for my scrap fabrics.


Next the scissors.  I had many discussions with my family about how my sewing scissors are only to be used for fabric.  I finally thought of a solution, separate the scissors and tell them to never touch them!  To separate them I use a magnetic knife rack from Ikea.

Binding is the bane of my existence.  I hate making binding.  So I was overjoyed to discover binding by the roll.  But how to store it?  I came up with the solution of ribbon racks.  I am able to store the binding and then use it directly off the rack.  It is easy and takes a lot less time when I am doing my binding!

Want to come hang out while I stream?  My schedule is always on my Facebook and my Twitter.  I also announce on Instagram when I go live.  We have a lot of fun, talk about sewing and quilting and of course have daily giveaways.  I am the giveaway queen after all.

Speaking of giveaways, let’s get to them!
