Besides the lovely order, there are real reasons to containerise your materials and supplies. Three words INSECTS, DUST, and LIGHT.  Here in New Zealand the only real insect problem we have is moths. These little critters love merino, it is the “go to” on the moth menu of choice. I don’t like using pesticides, so have pheromone traps for them. But at certain times of the year their rabid pursuit of wool is amazing. I wash all fabrics on purchase, catalogue them and store them in a sealed bin.

The Happiness of Orders  Organising your stash of treasures, can seem like a loss of valuable sewing time, but in reality there are many beneficial outcomes. I have to say that I have a large amount of things, I have been in the garment and sewing industry for 30 years, I rummage second hand shops, and friends and family are always gifting me treasures. And finally it is my job and passion, the more I sew, the better I am at problem solving and designing sewing products.

Storing fabric and notions away from sunlight is ideal. Fading is a big issue in my life. Our UV concentration here in New Zealand is very high. I don’t dry my clothes in direct sunlight, always in the shade, and am very aware of the light in my wardrobe area. Natural light is lovely, but it needs to be treated with caution, I always pull my blinds when I leave my studio, better to be safe than sorry. Studio, Laundry Clothes, Blinds

I appreciate that it looks beautiful having cones of thread on the wall, but the problem with this is dust. No matter how clean you keep your sewing space dust will accumulate on surfaces.  When dust rests on thread it is directly transferred into to your sewing machines. This is also why it is important to cover your machines when not in use as those dust particles are just looking for somewhere to land. e to accumulate. This in turn can lead to corrosion.

When I purchase fabric, I always wash it first, then snip a sample, and place it in my fabric catalogue book by type and weight accordingly. I always record length and width. Then it is neatly folded away in its corresponding bin on the shelf. Retro, Vintage, Fold, Sample

I organise my fabrics by type and weight. Eg wool jersey, cotton jersey, novelty synthetic, linen etc. Mostly, I sew cotton, linen and wool. So I have these are very defined. Whereas I rarely sew polycotton or polyester fabric, these I catalogue straight by type and don’t worry about weight. Polyester Fabric
