Clean your sewing space. If you have a whole sewing room, it's possible that it needs a good cleaning and reorganizing. Take time over the next month or two to not only clean and get organized, but also to get rid of fabric you might no longer want or need. That way, you'll make new room for spring fabrics! They'll be hitting the shelves soon so you want to be sure you're ready for them.

When cleaning, be sure to dust all surfaces, vacuum and sanitize. Be sure to re-organize all containers and bins that hold your sewing notions and more. Your supplies should be ready to use when you need them. Make sure everything has a proper place and it's easy to reach.

Do a full inventory of your fabric and patterns before throwing any out or donating them.

It's possible you have accumulated quite a bit of fabric in Portland OR over the years. It's hard to refrain from purchasing when things are on sale or retiring. However, it's OK to do an inventory and get rid of what you don't need or want. As you’re going through everything, be sure to label each piece of fabric with the amount and type. Then, you can sort each fabric by categories when storing. This will also help you not over buy next season. You'll know what you have and what you need and hopefully stay away from purchasing unnecessary fabrics.

Do the same for your patterns. Put them in different categories and label them. You could also make an Excel spreadsheet to reference so that you don't end up buying duplicates.
