You can spend a fortune on organization. Lost of people do. But if you don’t have money to burn on your sewing space, buy a battery operated label maker. My Dymo Latratag cost under 20 bucks and it’s the best tool I have for keeping sewing tools and notions straight (not to mention other house-hold spaces).
And I like open shelving for storage. It keeps my supplies in easy reach and top of mind.
If you sew, especially with vintage materials like I do (www.kikisrewinddesigns.com), you collect a lot of stuff. Keeping it in order makes creating much easier for me.
One final tip, those wine box inserts (these came from Trader Joes) make great cards to organize lengths of lace and trim. Just anchor the end in the slot, wrap and pin.
So how do you do it? If you have great tip for keeping your sewing space straight, especially one that recycles items your already have–please share.
