My Creative Space

Back to Sewing and creative spaces this blog.  I have a small sewing (creative) room but it is reasonably efficient. I read this great book and it helped alot.  Have you got a great tip/hint for your creative space? The best tip I use is to have clear containers (that you can see through) and most the same size so that you can sort the little bits and pieces that we all seem to collect and eventually use.  
Product Details

I think the Cheap shops are great for containers but make sure you get enough of the same container when you find them as sometimes they are a one off .
Your local quilting and sewing shop are an excellent source for your thread, spool and fabric holders and books on this subject.
Another great book which we have in the shop is Organizing Solutions for every Quilter.
It is a great idea to be organized as this saves time and money. So to spend some money on a couple of books to help you with this may just save you alot more time and money that you think.
Here are some photos of my sewing room that I will be packing up soon as we are moving house.  I am actually looking forward to this job as I need to go through all my stuff and sort it out again and hopefully I will find some new stuff again as I always do. It is more organized than it looks. My plan is to be even more organized in the next place (fingers crossed) Hee Hee

My fabric stash and my scrap boxes I have labels on them all and boxes for projects colour coordinated 

My design wall which is essential in any creative space but I have alot going on at the moment.

My pattern /Book shelf and thread draws oh and a TV which I usually play a DVD  from the Quilters Companion as inspiration when I am in there for the day

My Horn sewing cabinet that I have had for 20 years and love  I am set up to look out the window when sewing which is nice and soothing
So let me know  your best hint that you have in your creative space.?
Till next blog
Happy Stitchin
