All of this is in preparation for my "Pretend I'm Moving Sale" August 28-September 4, open to my guild friends and their friends and the Madison guild, and any other crafty people I can think to invite. I've written about this here, Closets 1 and 2 and here Closets 3 and 4.
Here is the AFTER:
What I did:
I purged fabrics
I purged a few not-yet-started projects, never will be now.
I really purged the fat quarters and was thrilled I eliminated one entire large bin of those
I folded everything really neatly so it fits much better
I made labels for most everything
What I did not do:
The bolts on the top shelf--didn't touch those
Ditto the boxes of solids on the top shelf, still there
The boxes of Oriental Fabrics, did not disturb them either
Ditto the box of African fabric--someday I'll use those again.
Yesterday and today I had help:
Sharon came today but I did not get her picture--she worked on the yardage culled from all the closets, folding the large pieces neatly, then she bagged and bagged and bagged up the smaller pieces. She was a great help!
This will be a sale folks will talk about for a long time so I am counting on my friends to bring their friends and get really incredible deals. I'll share more photos when things get set up. Here is a teaser:
|The spare bedroom is FULL of boxes filled to overflowing|
For now, I am so happy to have the closets under control and I'm working on the clutter around the room,. It's coming together and I'll be sewing again soon.
