I've shown you sooo many of my own spaces, but today I'm showing you a space I don't have. My mom has a HUGE sewing room because she sews all the time. I hopped over to her house to show you how she organizes it and keeps it super functional while storing a ton of supplies! Check out the video tour here.
Anyone who sews knows that there is a LOT of stuff involved. Or at least there can be the deeper you dive into it! My mom actually used her master bedroom for her sewing room and office. She says that they really only sleep in a bedroom, so otherwise it would have been a huge waste of space!
She has multiple sewing machines, a serger, an embroidery machine, plus all the fabric, thread, and supplies that go with it! It's great that she can really spread out in this room and even have space for a huge cutting table/island. Because she has such a large room, she can have multiple projects going at once.
This is the perfect example of why you should make your home your own. Feel free to use spaces or closets for different purposes than what might be “normal!” Using the master bedroom for sewing gives my mom so much better use out of her home. Do whatever works best for you, and don't be afraid to think outside the box!
I love how this space is so bright and cheerful. It just makes you want to create! My mom also stores things out in the open so she can see what she has to work with. The way she folds her fabric (around a ruler and then in half) keeps the stacks uniform and neat. She's also still able to see everything she has. In sewing, if it's out of sight, you kind of forget what you have. Her fabric shelves are still neat, and there's no digging through piles to see what's there.
There are lots of bookcases and shelving, but another efficient use of space here is all the wall storage and racks she uses. She has pegboards, a thread rack, and she also uses the ikea hanging bars for things she needs really often.
She stores her patterns in my absolute favorite bins from The Container Store. Multipurpose Bins for the WIN! They are the perfect size for patterns, and she also stores other things like thread or zippers. They still keep the shelves looking neat and uniform because of the same size bins.
My mom also has a little nook for an office area where she has her computer, printer, a filing cabinet, etc. She pays bills here and whatnot. It's nice to also have her computer/printer in her sewing area in case she needs to print patterns or instructions for a project.
Although there is a TON of stuff in this room, it is so functional for my mom, and she knows where everything is. The fabric storage is probably my favorite. It's functional because she can see everything she has. It also makes the room so bright and cheery that it almost doubles as decor!
Hopefully this gave you some storage and organization ideas for your own sewing room. Let me know if you have any other great tips for organizing a sewing room!
