    Default Your sewing area!

    Just wanting to throw out a little get to know you question for the gals here. I was standing in my sewing room and looked around. Its a total mess. LOL! But everytime I clean it I can never find anything. I just leave it a mess and just sew away. When I do clean it sometimes its like Christmas, cause I come across fabric that has gotten buried. So heres my question? Is your sewing area neat as a pin, or like mine tornado alley? Dont worry I heard there is no quilt police so if your messy or neat its OK. O and if your really brave post a picture.

    Can't send a picture but I can declare it a disaster area. I also share it with 5 birds.

    I can't stand working in a mess. So, the sewing area is neat. And the rest of the house is a total disaster. I just take care of what's most important...my workspace!!! (and I am not being silly. this is how it is around here.)

    Well, mine is a total disaster! Mainly because I don't just use it for sewing & quilting. I also use it for paper crafts (making cards, boxes, etc.) and for making vinyl wall decor. So on top of fabric, sewing machines & all the accessories, I have to have room for my cutters, vinyl, paper and all those accessories! Don't even get me started on trying to craft in there, then I have to trip over and move around 3 dogs under my feet that insist on being there!

    I only have a corner of a room to work in so I try to keep it as straight as possible. I don't like working in chaos either. I get enough of that at work!

    Well, my actual sewing area is my kitchen table so there's always something on there. I do have to clean it up before each new project. Eat at the table? No problem. We haven't eaten there for years. The kids are never home at the same time, so we rarely eat together. I do insist on holidays though that we sit as a family.
    As for the rest of the stuff - in my bedroom, basement and dining room. It is mostly organized or I wouldn't find a thing. I can usually go and get what I need when I need it.
    Sorry no photos. The drive that had the photos went down this week and the only thing I'm getting right now is email at times and internet at times. Of course, anything that was saved on the external drive and the harddrive has been lost to cyberland.

    Love reading this thread.

    I have a bad habit of cleaning and organizing my sewing room and then telling myself that I'm gonna keep it that way and as soon as I start another project it's a mess again. I'm gonna clean it today so we'll see how long it lasts.

    Disaster! Right now it doesn't look too bad since I folded and shelved some fabrics yesterday, but generally, it's a gigantic mess. Like most of you, I imagine, my space is not limited to fabric and sewing, but many different crafts that I've tried along the way

    Mine is the same! However, all my projects are stacked on top of each other, but all neatly so I can find them and in the order that I want to finish them, however, I have pulled one out of the bottom (Christmas) to work on it just for the break in what I sometimes consider to be monotony!

    This is how you find things in my "Qurap" Room/Area
