warm homespun greetings

You’ve likely heard (and told) jokes about “creative types” and their struggles with organization. A messy desk is the sign of a creative mind, serves as a prime example. It is true that many of you have the gift of order, keeping a tidy sewing room with a place for everything and everything in its place. But some of us (no names mentioned here) have a sewing room that is, let’s say, a little disheveled; still we know exactly where that pack of needles is—underneath the heap of notions, fabric scraps, and pencils over there. The talented designers in this issue share their favorite ways to repurpose old items such as quilts, jars, fabric, and the like.

ask mom

Hi Jeni, Even though I’m a beginner at quilting and working with wool, I find myself with a lot of scraps and stash already! Can you give me some tips for organization and storage, please? Thank you, Anne Dear Anne, What a great question! I think we all love to get great ideas for helping us keep our stash and our scraps at bay, or at easy access. After 25 years of quilting and working with wool, I am still on the lookout for new ideas and ways that I can do this. My first sewing space was a teeny, tiny bedroom in our first house.
