I must have crawled under a rock somewhere in 2015 because I just now heard about this book and it's everywhere and has been for a year!! I got my copy yesterday and read through most of it and am ready to begin tidying up...however, I really want to start with my sewing studio.
So, has anyone done the KonMari method for their sewing room? I think everything gives me joy, so now what? Marie Kondo says to put like categories in one place, but I need pins at every sewing machine, design board and my hand applique station. Same with scissors, seam rippers, pin cushions, oh, so many things.
Should I go around and touch everything? There's nothing I think I can discard everything gives me joy, so I'm back to organizing. I will turn some of my piles into vertical piles which is something I can do easily.
I've moved my "stuff" around again because it just wasn't working where it was. My HQ16 can't be moved, a good thing. I moved my Ruby Deluxe so that the bulk wouldn't fall off the table edge (what was I thinking the first go round?). Ditto for my ironing station, totally the wrong way. My cutting table isn't large enough for both my Accuquilt Big Go and my huge cutting mat, so I moved my Go to another table that is sort of away from everything and I'm worried I'll just use the rotary cutter. Sigh.
Anyway, before I started reading the book, I was going to take photos of my top 10 want/need/should to-finish as a journal and reminder of what I wanted to focus on this first month of 2016. Tomorrow, maybe?
Have you done the KonMari method in your sewing area yet? Help!!!
I've ordered her second book, Spark Joy, which I should get on Saturday. I think she gets down to the nitty gritty with specific rooms, maybe that will help me get going.
I will start my clothes after the weekend. Check it out if you've been living under a rock!
