Keeping our notions, tools and patterns organised is such a Sisyphean task, isn’t it? Once we think we have things figured out, we are faced with another storage challenge to solve. And sewing is a pretty equipment heavy activity, so it’s really hard to keep it manageable.
I’m always experimenting with different ways to keep my sewing stuff organised in a manner that is intuitive and requires little effort to maintain. I still haven’t figured everything out, but I do have some systems that have served me really well. So in this video, I share my top tips for organising things like thread spools, sewing machine needles, patterns, buttons and what type of storage solutions that work best for me. Most of these tips are also really budget-friendly, which is a nice bonus.
I’ve also blogged about some of the storage solutions I talk about in the video:
