But here’s the deal, I am finding that as big as the sewing industry is, there really are very few products out dedicated to the needs of sewers! Am I the only one that finds this weird?
I would LOVE to get most of the stuff which now surrounds & overwhelms me in my current area (in various boxes & receptacles) neatly organized into drawers and cabinets, which is why I began searching for organization products BEFORE shopping for furniture!
Here’s a thread organizer I found online on the Haka site. Looks PERFECT doesn’t it? It’s a little pricey though ($23.46 plus shipping & tax). But a smart cookie in my Facebook group suggested I look at spice rack organizers and VOILA!LOOK what I found in the local SpaceSavers at a fraction of the cost ($12.99 plus tax). It’s VERY similar AND both sides expand to fill your drawer space completely! Yeah I know my thread collection doesn’t look as good as theirs, (whose does???) because my spools are of so many different sizes and shapes, but I still love it because now i see all the colors so easily. Notice how many color duplicates I have? (I’m hoping this new system will cut down on that.) But the best part is, when I close the drawer, its outta site! YES!
So… while I was there, I thought I check out what other drawer organization supplies they might have and this is what I found!
I think this little beauty would be perfect for a lot of my other items and it EXPANDS to fit the size of the drawer I place it in! How cool!
Interestingly enough, the packaging of this particular unit indicated that it was being marketed specifically for scrap-bookers. Hmmm… But that’s OK. I can really make this little unit work for me!
I took these three units to my prospective cabinet maker yesterday, and since they are all relatively the same size, “we’re” going to conjure up a cabinet that will make me the self-proclaimed QUEEN of sewing organization. (Anything will be an improvement!)
But that’s starting to sound like a new post…So stay tuned for MORE!
