I don’t have a dedicated sewing room; the kitchen and living room are where I sew. My supplies were stuffed in a closet corner or in multiple baskets. I knew that if only I could store my sewing supplies in a single, yet mobile, place, I would save time and energy locating and storing everything.
To solve my problem, I purchased a heavy-duty plastic toolbox on wheels (Trademark Tools 75-2050 Mobile Workshop, Amazon.com). It has small and large compartments and drawers, and operates like a tall rolling suitcase. I can roll it from one location to another while its contents remain undisturbed. All of my supplies-from pressing tools to standard notions-fit neatly inside.
