I know that Value Village took fabric when I was purging our house. I'm not sure if they are in the UK though. I would ask thrift/charity shops if they would take it as someone might want to buy it from them.

I spent over an hour trying to get my serger to stitch more balanced. I tried everything and finally hauled out the manual. One of the loopers wasn't fully threaded and I have a small part I move to do a rolled hem. It wasn't back in the normal position. When both of those were rectified, the serger is now serging nicely.

I'm starting early this year as I'm still in the midst of sorting/bolting/shelving the stash, but have just been given a magnificent 7' long L shaped desk.   :applause2:   It has very large surfaces and I can have two machines set up at a time, on different legs of the L, with additional space for the computer, and still have extra surface space.  It has felt lined drawers with adjustable dividers for scissors and such.   I'm very excited  :run:  It will not fit efficiently in the bedroom I am currently using as the sewing room, so I'm switching back to the loft for sewing.  I switched from sewing in the loft to the bedroom several years ago to take advantage of the large windows in the bedroom, but DH says we can put up some extra lights in the loft.

DM said we will have our own personal fabric shop with the stashes (we each have our own :rotfl: ), patterns, notions, and my other craft supplies in the smaller room.  School starts 6 weeks from today, so I have a personal deadline for most of it to be done before the annual event begins.  Wish me luck.  Some of these tasks were started more than a couple years ago.

Sounds wonderful Junebug.

I want to paint my sewing room a light color and have been looking at ideas. Have a couple in my mind which would look great in the whole house. My sewing room will have red cardinals in it which can be used at Christmas/winter.

DDIL gave me a desk which I love. There is only two drawers in it but one is a filing drawer for patterns and the other is for jewelry making. There is a top area on one part that opens up for more jewelry making supplies. That part of the desk rolls under the other part so it looks like a filing cabinet. It is perfect for my room and I do use it quite often.

Maybe by September I will have the sewing room painted. And maybe not as we hope to fly friends here to visit for 10 days. I will then work in sewing room after they leave.
