Pegboard for Sewing Tools
Setting up a pegboard against a wall is probably one of the most versatile ways to organize your sewing space. By using different-sized boards and adjustable pegs, you can hang notions like thread spools or tools. You can purchase these at local home improvement or hardware stores and even paint the boards to your liking!

Rolling carts are also versatile since you can roll them around wherever you need them, then store them from sight when not needed. Some will have trays, and others will have drawers, and rolling carts can come in different shapes and sizes.

|As I have, you can utilize hooks and magnets to hold your embroidery hoops, quilting rulers, and scissors on your rolling cart.
You can also use stacking trays and tubs to organize smaller bits and bobs on each cart. I like to repurpose candle jars after removing the wax and cleaning them thoroughly.
Tackle or Tool Boxes
Containers to hold tools, fishing supplies, or other small supplies can make excellent storage boxes for packages of needles or sewing machine feet and accessories.
