Decluttering Tips, LIVE WELL

How to (Finally!) Get Organized in 2022

Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed when you walk into your sewing room?

Do you have to move piles from one place to another before you can sit down to sew?

Do you need a better system for storing works-in-progress so that they don’t take over your entire sewing space? 

Let’s make 2022 the year you (finally!) get organized!

Make 2022 the Year You (Finally!) Get Organized

“I’ll get to it — someday.”

How often do we put ourselves on the back burner because there are more pressing issues than cleaning up our creative spaces? But in reality, taking care of ourselves and creating space to sew in a light and inspiring environment is so important! Giving ourselves the space to mentally and physically feel inspired renews our energy and gives us the bandwidth to deal with all of life’s other issues. After all, quilting = therapy!

Don’t wait another day. Make 2022 the year that you (finally!) take care of yourself and your space, so that you have the energy to give to others. Give yourself the gift of a clean creative space. Say goodbye to that burden of SOMEDAY and let’s tackle it together — today!

Sewing Room Clutter Explained

Everything is Useable. Every last scrap. This makes it difficult to know how to let go of fabric. There is always a way that you *could* use it. The question then becomes, will you use it? If the answer is no, the fabric is no longer useful to you.  It has become clutter in your space.

Not Enough Storage. The best way to have enough storage? Own less stuff. Once you have the right amount of fabric and supplies for the sewing space that you have, you can determine the best systems for organizing and storing fabric.

Not Understanding How You Work. Storing fabric can be complicated. Start keeping track of your sewing habits. Do you tend to use fat quarters or yardage? Do you like working with scraps? Or is anything less than a fat quarter not useful to you? Once you know your habits, you can make decisions on what to keep or let it go.

Not Having a Place for New Fabric. Before purchasing new fabric, think about how you will use it — or at least where you will store it.  If you can’t think of where it will go, think twice about bringing it into your creative space. Maybe you don’t need it after all. . . 

What to Do About It

There are so many ways to tackle clutter — and so much of it depends on the amount of space we have, the amount of things we have, and our relationship to the things we own.
