Clutter was preventing this creative quilter from using her sewing room. Rather than being a place for creativity and design, it evolved into an overwhelming zone of chaos. Due to the clutter in the sewing room the client moved her sewing projects to the dining room table.

The first step involved completing a decluttering process of the entire room, closet, storage cabinets, and surface areas. All items/accessories were categorized by keep, donate, sell, or toss. Reducing the number of supplies, tools, and accessories, created space, and breathing room. This also enabled the client to assess and take inventory of what was necessary and functional for her quilting needs.

All the items allocated to the “sell pile” were organized, categorized, photographed, and placed on marketplace for sale. Sale items were a tremendous success, the client was able to earn additional funds to purchase lovely new cabinets for her fabric storage.

The client was very generous in donating valuable sewing supplies to other quilters who are just getting started in the craft.

After the decluttering process, the cabinets and closet were reorganized and categorized efficiently. The workspaces were cleared and made useable, for sewing, cutting, and pressing. New storage cabinets were installed to showcase the client’s beautiful fabrics and provide better access for colour matching and selection.

Now this cheerful sewing room has regained its original purpose to inspire its owner to love creating gorgeous fabric artworks.

The client was so pleased with the outcome she hosted a tea party to reveal the newly organized sewing space with her friends and neighbours.
