Editorial Reviews


Say goodbye to crafty clutter and take control of your sewing space. Get ideas for organizing your creative space that will help you make sense of your stash no matter how short on time you are. This book features tried and true storage tips, handy checklists sprinkled throughout plus 23 home-dec and accessories projects for organization and otherwise. (Sew News, October/November 2015)

Heidi Staples' new book is self-help for the busy sewist. Part workbook, part pattern book, and part how-to time, this busy mama dispenses advice on why we should sew, creating and organizing our creative space, and making time for sewing. Advice from successful artists is peppered throughout, as well as workbook pages to help us put our plans for world domination - ahem - more sewing time into action. (Come on! You know there are times world dominations seems more likely than time to sew.) Heidi helps with the "what" to sew, too, with 23 projects ranging from toys to home accessories to yummy quilts. The Girl Friday Sewing Case and Envelope Clutch are just two of our faves. (Generation Q Magazine, July/August 2015)

Popular blogger Heidi Staples offers tried-and-true tactics for taking control of your creative space and paving the way for hours of sewing enjoyment. This guide also includes 23 chic, modern projects to inspire the newly organized, ranging from hand-crafted quilts to cute storage cases and fun gifts for kids. (American Sewing Guild Notions, Spring 2015)

Sewing and quilting blogger Staples ­(fabricmutt.blogspot.com) has only been sewing since 2011, but she quickly discovered how easy it can be to let a sewing space get out of hand. Her quest for organizational sanity led to this book, which focuses on tips for ordering one's sewing area, regardless of the allotted size of the physical space or the stash of fabric and notions. A series of quizzes and writing prompts helps sewists set goals and make an action plan, and Staples shares some ideas that have worked for her. Projects that make good use of the scraps and odds and ends that most quilters and sewists have in abundance follow. VERDICT Staples's suggestions range from useful (gathering items related to an ongoing project into a project bag) to a little silly (using a weekly “family meeting” to declare your need for some sewing time), but the chronically disorganized―and those seeking a better system―will appreciate her low-stress, creative approach. (Library Journal, March 2015)

This book offers practical tips and solutions for making the most of, not only your space, but also your time. Staples, a mom of three, includes advice on fitting sewing into a busy lifestyle and organizing one's sewing space and works-in-progress so they are easily accessible and “ready to roll” at any time. The book also includes 23 projects, shopping and storage ideas to manage the ever-growing stash, and productivity tips. (Quilts Inc., February 2015)

...the projects themselves are modern, cute, and indeed clever, relying mostly on simple quilting techniques. A Book Nook pillow perfect for relaxing and reading features a nine-patch pocket, while an envelope clutch can carry a manicure set or art supplies, depending on which size is sewn. All of the helpful tips, such as how to “audition” fabric and whether to allow your kids in your sewing room, are right on the money….and it seems likely that her charming aesthetic and relatable style will capture their attention. (Publishers Weekly, February 2015)

Gain tips to clear the clutter from your sewing space from Sew Organized for the Busy Girl. Then take time to truly enjoy sewing and stitch some of the 23 featured projects. (Quilts and More, Spring 2017)

Be inspired by creative mom of three Heidi Staples. She offers insight on how to fit sewing into your busy lifestyle in her book “Sew Organized for the Busy Girl: Tips to Make the Most of Your Time & Space." Her recommendations are practical and unfussy such as using a calendar for projects as well as dividing larger undertakings into smaller, more manageable tasks. (Deborah Tarsiewicz Abilene Reporter-News, 11/5/2017)
