Every now and then, the fabric overwhelms the bins, and I have to tuck some things away in boxes so that I can 'power sew' my way through the excess!!! LOL
And yes, Carol (caguirre) ... small session can make a big difference. Not only is my 10x11 room the sewing room, it's also the computer room, the painting/drawing room, and more. I have had to make best use of the space, for sure, with 2 sewing/embroidery machines and a serger, 10 baskets of patterns, 12 bins of fabrics ... hundreds of spools of threads ... books ... I will admit there's not much visible floor space.
Tip for scissors - a men's tie rack. I found one with 7 hooks and if I double up some of the smaller snips, I can fit most of my sewing and embroidery scissors on it. The trick, of course, is to hang them up after every sewing session.
