The REAL Studio Tour -- Storage Solutions


Participants in Vicki’s REAL Studio Tour are asked to post about storage tips today. 


Here is my travelling sewing tool kit.  Virtually every Tuesday I’m sewing with friends in a space we rented when our local quilt shop closed.  We have created a very nice place to gather and sew and some weeks I spend as much time sewing there as I do at my home studio.  So, I needed to devise a way to organize my tools so that they were portable and easily accessible both at “Our Place” and at home. 

Several of us bought these tool boxes at hardware stores.  Some of our members even found feminine pink ones and one carries a red one.  


I found some small plastic boxes at an office supply store that fit it perfectly and I borrowed my husband’s label maker to help me keep their contents straight. Now, whether I'm sewing at home or with friends or at our ranch house, this little carrier is on the floor next to my chair.  It's organized to my needs and has helped me avoid buying quite so many duplicate notions.  When it's time to clear out my sewing room to make room for air mattresses, it tucks neatly away in a closet.  


I’m linking up with Vicki’s post today where others will be sharing their tips on storage.  I’m looking forward to learning from their ideas.  Storage and organization are definitely not my strength.  

Vicki is offering chances at a very nice giveaway to anyone who participates, so be sure to link up with your ideas.  We will all benefit.

This so tidy! My portable stuff is all over the place in different tote bags. I'm also envious of your weekly sewing group! Ours is once or twice a month, and I need more!
