This should be done more often but who has the time?  I just moved so my
stash has been gone through and rearranged!  I think the most important part
is having a place for everything (I use "kassett" boxes from Ikea for
notions, ribbon, bias tape, etc).  I have labels on all the boxes.  I have
folded my fabric in piles before like lining, lycra, patchwork but after a
few months, the piles are often ruined.

Re: need to re-organize the stash


 I hope y'all realize that you've triggered an OCD moment in me and
now I MUST re-organize mine!!! Ok, I've felt the urge to do this for
some time now, especially since my spring/summer busy time (shows and
festivals) is over and I have a bit more time to use as I wish.

I did the thread this summer...  Got fed up with never being able to put
my hand on the thread I wanted without moving several boxes of other
clobber and 5 sewing machines!

It's now housed in a 6 drawer stack from Ikea (their Antonius range,
with plastic drawers), in boxes from Hobbycraft, sorted by colour and
type, and hidden from light by a curtain fabric 'cozy' nailed to the
frame with Velcro.  Works a treat!

The fabric is still reasonably tidy.  Sorting the thread storage did
force quite a reshuffle in the sewing room, and a considerable tidy-up!

I love Antonius!  We have him under the stairs organizing the winter
clothes.
I have "Ivar" in the sewing room, it is narrower and that is what I need.  I
had a friend build me a thread rack several years ago, like the commercial
ones but bigger (over 1 m tall).  I do not have it protected from the light,
however.  Something to think about...

I buy the biggest container of peanut butter I can find.  After they are
empty and go through the dishwasher, they make wonderful storage for buttons
and other sewing things.

usually, yes, it washes out in the dishwasher. before i had a
dishwasher i used to soak the plastic jars with a bit of
oxygen bleach & detergent, which works as well.
 i still prefer the glass jars, which didn't hold smells to
begin with though :)

Usually, one turn in the dishwasher rids jars of the smell; I don't buy
large jars anymore, but I do use the smaller ones for many things.

I have these:

The frame: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/70120023
The drawers: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50101233
Desk top: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/40104821 (I have a
white one)
The wheels!  http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/14368980

I have two more stacks with some of the deeper drawers in my bedroom for
storing towels and bed linnen, and I need to make cozies for them to
keep dust and light out.  I have 3 of the 4 drawer stacks in the sewing
room, with baskest, for holding other sewing stuff, and some with the
cloth drawers in the kitchen for holding things that won't fit
elsewhere!  All but the ones in the bedroom have the wheels on because I
move them about.  The ones in the bedroom don't because I don't need to
move them except for cleanong under every six months or so. I may still
get them some castors, though...  :)
