Seeing this thread and another one has made me realise I need to do something fast so I've spent some money with the intention of revamping first before the decorate next year. 

I've bought this, I got something similar for the conservatory last year and this is the same make but considerably cheaper, factory clearance (love that word), and I know it is good quality.

It should go a long way to hiding some patterns and other stuff and taking down a table to be replaced by a slimmer one.  Just need a bit of time now to play Pickfords.

I've finally sorted my pattern storage - Ikea Tjena white boxes, size 18 x 25x15cm, at a whopping £1.50 each, and a few decorations from The Range.  Leave the lid off for standing patterns up, or lid on for other things.

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I recently inherited my Mom's oak filing cabinet - it's 2 drawers high but double width.  It holds everything but my children's patterns (stored in a large plastic bin) and my Jalie patterns (in magazine holders).  It has made a definite improvement to the room.  But I need more bookcases.
Sewing & fabric collecting are two separate hobbies!

Not necessarily for pattern storage, but I've just bought some plastic shoe boxes from Home Bargain 0.89p each.  I bought them originally for project boxes - I'm fed up of losing bits and pieces.

But, when I got home, i found the are the perfect size for patterns.  Just need some time to sort the patterns out now!
