Spring Cleaning

I am sure we all have that moment when we walk into our sewing room and all that comes to mind is chaos! Well, since Spring Cleaning is upon us wouldn't you say it is time to find the inspiration for organization. Here is a quick guide for you to start your cleaning festivities. 

One of the first things you need to do is arrange your space so it is easy to clean!
-Raise height of your cutting table with bed risers.
-Stash away your Fabrics.
-Sort Out Threads and Bobbins.
-Organize Needles, Pins and Stabilizers.
-Tame your Laces, Trims and Ribbons.
-Categorize your Patterns, Embroidery Designs, Magazines and Books.
-End the Notions Commotion.
-Sort unfinished sewing projects into individual baskets and store on a shelf.
-Update family’s measurements and post on your bulletin board.
-Rearrange your sewing room.

Now that everything is organized and has a home you can actually start Spring Cleaning!
-Thoroughly clean your sewing machine.
-Have your sewing machine serviced by a professional.
