No matter what I’m working on, no matter what the medium, all my projects end up in the same place…my office/craft/computer room floor.  I don’t know if I just haven’t found the right way of organizing for my style of working (I realize not every way of organizing works for every person) but it’s always the same…by the end of my project I can no longer walk across the room or see my floor!  I decided to search for some inspiration.  I can’t really change what I have now, but I’m looking for inspiration to take with me when we move to our next house (might be getting closer!)

Hope you get some ideas from these wonderfully organized folks!

Sewing Room Organization

I love these shelves with all the organization containers and jars.  If you go to this room tour by clicking the photo, you’ll see the rest of the most inspiring room!

This room is put together by professional organizers…if only I could afford one!

This room does it all.  Washes, irons, sews, take a nap on the couch…lol!  A great idea for a larger room, combine laundry and sewing…but then, that works better if you are an organized laundry person also, and I fail there too!

I really like this one.  A basement area painted crisp white, not only is it light and bright but I’d love to have a room on a different level than our living area so I don’t have to see my mess in the middle of a project!

    I am moving and will only have an open closet area (25″ deep and 45″ wide”) and it is off the kitchen- I have to figure out a way to make this usuable and make the most of the space.
    Any ideas?

  3. My room is a bedroom size with 2 sewing machine cabinets for two machines, a large cutting table, and another table for my computer. I am fortunate to store my fabric in another room with my longarm at 6ft but its tight. I have one shelf for books but because we may move I’m waiting for my dream room. Thanks for all the pictures. Great inspiration.

    I have a small sewing/craft room in our basement (you walk through it to get to the laundry). It’s still missing a drop ceiling and some trim but my hubby customized it perfectly for me! Here’s a link to how I store my fabrics:
    They’re all rolled with labels of the size on them (like a remnant at the fabric store) and then stored either directly on the shelves or in repurposed diaper boxes. The trick is keeping them this organized!

    I have a long narrow sewing room so have to be quite careful otherwise I end up trapped in the room by projects ! I do however have an ikea wardrobe which has shelves instead of rails which is great to store fabric in – I can open the doors wide and see everything or close to keep it all clean

    We have a small room in our basement that I’m in the process of converting into what I’m calling my “lady cave.” I’m hoping to at least get a project desk in there, storage for all my “junk” and a comfy chair so I can just lounge down there and read. These pics have given me some serious inspiration, not to mention motivation to get the room done :)
