7 Sewing Room Organization Ideas

Organizing your yard goods and sewing supplies can be a tough thing to do, especially if you don’t have a spare room designated for it. Don’t you worry, we are here to help you.

We have read a couple of blogs and found some tips and tricks on how to maximize small sewing space. Like everyone said, “An organized room will give you peace of mind.”

Tip # 1 Go Vertical

Maximize the storage space you have. It can be old clothes or linen closet, shelves, pegboard, etc. Be creative in squeezing supplies into those spots. You can hang your fabrics and ribbons or organize them by color in drawers. You can use magnet strips to hold your scissors or place small containers for your buttons.

Tip # 2 Be Creative in Storing Supplies

Use stacking bin containers and group items together. Store leftover ribbons or buttons in jars or use a rolling storage cart. You must be creative in storing your supplies.

Tip # 3 All About Label

By placing labels on your boxes, drawers, or everything that you have your stuff on will be a breath of fresh air. It will give you a lot of conveniences. Find supplies easier, and you will likely remember the supplies you still have and the supplies you need to purchase.

Tip # 4 Hide Your Station

Find an area where you can hide your sewing station. Yup, you read it right. You don’t want your friends or family to see how messy your station is. So, hide it for the meantime. You can put it inside your linen closet or place curtains so that it will not be visible to them.

Tip # 5 Take Advantage of Empty Space

If you have a limited area, take advantage of the empty spaces in your home. It can be behind the door or under the bed. Place pegboards, wall racks, and under-bed containers to make it functional so you can use it.

Tip # 6 Have your frequently used supplies at hand.

Only display the things you frequently need. It will also minimize the mess in the room. You wouldn’t need that 200 yards of fabric or 30 spools of thread right away, would you? Better to keep the rest in your basement or garage so that you will have enough space on your sewing station.

Tip # 7 Multipurpose

Add a cutting mat on your sewing desk station to make it a cutting table. You can also place your iron boards on top of it. Got it? Too many ideas if only learn to be creative.

Consider buying a sewing table as they are space saver and very functional.

That is all for now. Hope you are all inspired in organizing your rooms with the tips we shared.
