Happy New Year! It’s now official–the holidays are over and we’re into trying to make good on our New Year’s resolutions. I’m guessing that many of you have some similar to mine–clean and organize the sewing room, get rid of some old sewing magazines and save those stories that you want to keep (and file them so you can find them), and watch what you spend on fabric, concentrating on using up what you have in the stash. Even one of those alone would be a major task, but you’ve got 12 months to do it in.
Another one I plan to tackle soon is organizing all my cotton fabrics by color. At present, they’re running amuck…some are organized by theme, like food prints and sewing prints, but the general stash is a mish-mash. I think if I refold, touch and categorize the fabrics I’ll be reminded of what I have and then I can organize them by colors for easier finding later. It’s always fun to remember where you purchased a particular fabric, or what your original plan was for it. (OK, so that plan may no longer be in fashion if the fabric has significantly aged!)
So, I wish you the best of luck in your sewing room resolutions, and I’ll report back periodically on my determination to fulfill mine.
