Opinions please!

As you may or may not know, I organize my sewing projects by month, and each of my children and myself get one or two months a year where I sew exclusively for that person.

Staring aimlessly at my horde of fabric again… I had a brainwave.

It occurred to me that I should store my fabric in bins according to the person I bought it for. My children and I all have very distinct personalities, and what fabric works for one person, certainly doesn’t seem to suit another. I would also like to have a bin for quilting, and a bin for fabrics that I have no idea what I’m going to do with.

Then, each time that the first of the month came around, and I was now sewing for a different child, I could just grab their bin.

Now that I’ve written it out, I like the idea a lot.  I still would like to have other peoples opinions, though!

  1. You should organize it any way it works for you! Now, for me, your idea wouldn’t work at all. But most of my fabric is based primarily on color, not pattern, so I can mix colors in interesting ways and have them work. Patterns don’t always do that as well. One thing I have found over the years is if I buy tone-on-tone or geometrics, or almost anything but florals or novelties, they mix pretty well as long as the colors work. So for me, I wouldn’t separate them by person. Again, tho, whatever works for you. It sure wouldn’t hurt to try it. What’s the worst that would happen?
