Craftroom is a tad messy right now or else I would take some pics and add them to my profile. May do so tomorrow if I get a chance. Been sleeping a lot lately. No projects are getting done. Yuck!

I know this is Sunday of a new week since the question was asked. My boyfriend built some shelves that fit in the closet fairly snug (have to take the closet doors off to remove the shelves) and my fabric stays on those. My threads and other notions are kept in slide drawer organizers and serger thread (only have 4 each of 4 colors right now) is kept in a photo box. Ribbon is stored on a pantry door wired organizer hung on the wall..and patterns that are printed from online are kept organized in 3 ring binders by material used (wood, fabric, clay, etc) then by things such as for babies, christmas, misc. I use the clear slip pockets and put the instructions in each one. I usually buy binders on clearance after the school year starts or when they have major deals on those supplies and organizers when the school shopping begins. :)

*yes I am overly organized...hides* emoticon

When I had my from carpets changed to hardwood flooring. I bought those huge bags that once it is full, you seal the bag, then use a vacuum to suck out all the air. I used the bags for bedding, clothes and fabric, then stashed all in the shower stalls and bathtub to the ceiling.
Worked so well that use them to store seasonal clothing. Have 3 large plastic containers to hold fabric stash. Have three drawer plastic chest to store all my thread and a rack that holds 40 serger spools of thread, though figured out away to stash double the spools on the rack! Fuzzy wooly nylon thread spools have stored in a vacuum sealed bag, in my closet.

Have a 4 tier wooden shelf unit [crude wood shelving] looks ugly so made a skirt to hang over it. Same for the serger thread rack. Keeps the dust of the thread.

Check out my up load pics, just click photo's to right of the computer screen just under blogs & Huddle wall.
