In early 2011, I purchased plastic drawer bins for fabric stash storage. I liked this very much, for I could sort fabrics by color, and they would be easily accessible.
I love the changes I made. For two years I have struggled with the sewing space, thinking the only solution was to add on to the house. But I could not commit to such a large expense when the house is plenty large as it is. I now have my sewing area in a location that is easy to use, and I can invite people over for meals to be eaten in a dining space!
