I'm just waisting some time today and went to the Threads forum.
Someone posted this and I thought I'd share

Granma had serious Stash Disorder.

Don't you want to just go in there and give it a good sort out!
love and kisses, Jan

Two things come to mind;

How much money has this woman spent on sewing stuff?


What does the rest of her house look like?

I did enjoy the narration, very cute.

Lennie, I sure am glad you live too far away to come to my home... LOL... I don't let anyone in the door, anyway... That lady had more patterns than I do.. I use patterns over and over, so I don't have that many..

Thats it - I'm going to clean up/reorganise my stash again tomorrow. Scariest thing about this video is the potential glimpse into the future. I even had a couple of the same patterns.

Jan - I would love to go and help sort it out - but I'd just want to bring too much of it home.

Grandma would be pleased to know that at least her granddaughter has the fond memories and love of fabric.

I think I would have liked that gramma. :up:
I bet she would be pleased to know that her granddaughter is using some of the fabric and patterns. It would be fun to sort through that sewing room.

That was just "scary". Mine can get pretty messy but today I gutted it after seeing that movie. I always try to keep in mind, what if I dropped dead and my kids had to come in and clean up, my son has laughed and hinted that I am getting "eccentric" in my old age, that would just do him in.

OMG that was hilarious...I love the Wall of Knit and the Wall of Gabardine. I betcha that granddaughter inherits all that sewing stuff when grandma is gone.

So far I know excactly what material I have, even if I have to search for it sometimes. But I did show hubby the video, and he went a little green around the gills.

But now I am REALLY allowed to plan my new sewing room shelving and storage.
Cheers, Soph.

I'm happiest when I am sewing!
