Spring Cleaning: Tips and Tricks On How to Organize Your Quilting Room

Spring is the perfect time to clean up your quilting room, get organized, and prepare for the new quilting projects ahead. While the process of spring cleaning may not be at the top of your "fun things to do" list, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to make the job a little easier. Pick up any needed quilting supplies from Watergirl Quilt Co. online or in person at our Prescott store today!

Take An Inventory of Your Quilting Supplies

First, sort through your fabric and supplies. Go through your fabric stash and organize it by color and type. Get rid of any fabric that you’re not going to use, and put the fabric that you are going to use in a clearly labeled bin. Do the same with your supplies like thread, buttons, needles, and thimbles.

Declutter Your Quilting Space

When decluttering your quilting workspace, begin by taking everything off the table, shelves, and other surfaces, and getting rid of anything that you don’t need. Sort through the items you’ve kept and put them in labeled drawers or bins. This will make it easier to find items when you need them.

Organize Your Notions

Don’t let those rulers just gather dust in drawers. Perhaps a peg board or a ruler holder will do. Make sure that you have all your ruler instruction sheets either attached to your rulers, or putting them in a binder is a great idea. We love the Studio 180 Tools, and you can download PDF instructions for all the rulers.

Try making a By Annie Catch All Caddy to store your most used notions and have them right at your fingertips. 

Organize Your Quilting Patterns

Sort through your patterns and get rid of any that you don’t think you’ll use. Put the patterns you plan to use in a clearly labeled bin or drawer.


Spring cleaning your quilting room doesn’t have to be time-consuming.
