I don’t have a dedicated sewing space because I live in an apartment. My living room and dining room houses my sewing machines and serger. I also have a desk next to my sofa with a sewing machine and another sewing machine on my dining room table. Oh I also have the home hobby table that has wheels and folds. Since my living room and dining room is spacious, this is not a problem for me.
The problem began when I started to buy fabric and patterns. At first I bought plastic Sterilite 18 gallon bins to hold my fabric but I couldn’t see my fabric and they were piling up in my dining room. Initially I didn’t think I would be using patterns because they were difficult for me to follow the instructions. I prefer to watch a video and sewing along with the person. Now that I am a bit more experienced, I have an extensive pattern collection as well. I had to come up with a plan because my living room and dining room was running over with machines, fabric, and patterns so I decided to invest in the Sterilite 3 drawer cart and move my fabric and patterns to my second bedroom. As soon as I removed the bins and organized my fabric in patterns in the 3 drawer cart, I felt a weigh lift off of my shoulders. I love the 3 drawer cart because I can see my fabric and I can stack my patterns in order. I would love to have a dedicated sewing space but for right now, I’m working with what I have.
