Some of the things I do to help me be more successful and organized while I am sewing or quilting involve visually knowing where things are. Organizing is really not my thing, I just like to make stuff, but if I don’t stay organized I do go a little crazy trying to find stuff. I realized a long time ago that I am a piler not a filer. This helps me know what kind of organizing will work for me. If I file something away I can’t remember what I filed it under, but if it is in a pile somewhere I seem to know just which pile it is in and can go right to it and locate the thing I am looking for. I guess I am just a very visual person.
Same thing goes for my sewing supplies.
So while I am working on projects it helps me if I store the threads I am using like this.
I keep the thread that I am using along with the bobbin thread in this little basket that a student gave me. It fits on top of the drawers right next to my sewing machine and is in easy reach.
What helps you stay organized. I hope you will share your secrets with us.
