Don’t have a sewing cabinet, can’t get an Armoire on top of your Volkswagen? Not to worry. Get a free standing shelf from Home Depot, one of those metal ones that bolt together and Voila’ you have a sewing room (better hide your scissors though).
Ok, Ok, you live in an efficiency apartment and have no extra wall space. Umm, guess you will have to use kitchen or dining room table after all. But that doesn’t give you permission to be disorganized. So, find ways to keep all your sewing stuff in one place. Trudge back to that thrift store and look for an old picnic basket, you know ones with extra compartments. Your notions will be in one place and portable. Check around for one of those nifty plastic thingies that rolls under bed. You could fit a lot of fabric and notions in there. “ Who are you kidding; I know you’ve been hoarding fabric sister. ”
As a last resort, store your clothes with your husbands in his closet. Make room by giving some of his stuff to Thrift store. (they will appreciate that, even if he won't). Now that you have an empty closet put up some closet shelves, drill some holes, stack fabric and .....hide scissors. Copyright Reserved by Cyd Klein Enterprises
