Should I Get Some Sewing Furniture?
Sewing furniture can help greatly to keep things organised. At Spotlight, customers can obtain sewing cabinets and crafting tables to store sewing supplies and to create a crafting space they are comfortable in.
How Should I Store My Sewing Patterns?
One of the more difficult things to keep organised is your selection of sewing patterns. If you have been sewing for some time, it is not uncommon to have them laying around your sewing room. Of course, this does not help you if you want to sew something and need to find something specific.
The best way to keep your patterns organised is by arranging them by category. For example, you can have a separate category for dresses, shirts, tops, and the like. To store your patterns, you could get some handy storage boxes from Spotlight, or you could store them in dedicated folders in your sewing cupboard. It all depends on what works best for you.
How Should I Store My Fabrics?
Much like patterns, fabric is also something that accumulates over the course of time. Many crafters will keep their fabric in a basket or another large container. At first, this is not really a problem. However, over time, more fabric piles up and it becomes harder to find the fabric pieces you need. It also causes the fabric to crease, which is less than helpful when it comes to creating something.
One of the better ways to keep your fabric organised is by using comic boards. If you do not have the budget for that, you could use some simple cardboard to create your own fabric bolts. Using this system allows you to get a better overview of the fabrics you have.
If you have a lot more space in your sewing room, getting a sewing wardrobe could prove useful. You can add individual hangers inside and simply drape the fabrics you have over it. By looking at your wardrobe, you will have an immediate overview of the available fabrics and their design.
For smaller fabrics such as interfacing, you can create some dedicated rolls too. You could use cardboard tubes from old wrapping paper, or the roll the interfacing came with. There are loads of possibilities there. Of course, it is still important to store them in a way that provides you with an immediate overview of the interfacing you have.
Where Do I Keep All Those Buttons?
When you just start out with sewing, you may have had a small collection of buttons. Of course, it is also likely you have obtained an enormous collection of the years, which makes the storage of your buttons a little harder.
If buttons have become a little troublesome, it can be a good idea to get some mason jars. Transparent mason jars are a quick way to store buttons by type, colour, or size, enabling you to have a quick view of what each mason jar contains. Mason jars are also available in various sizes, so you can buy a size that matches the number of buttons you have.
What Is The Best Way To Store Thread?
Thread you have bought for your projects can also be difficult to store. However, there are lots of ways to keep them organised. For example, if you have a lot of space, you can create a special board for all your thread and mount it on the wall. If you put it in front of your sewing table, you can also gain immediate access to them. However, if you do not have the time or the budget for a board, you can obtain one of the convenient multi-compartment storage boxes from Spotlight.
