Types of Hobbies, Crafts, and Sewing Storage

From the beginning hobbyist to the lifelong sewer, every person who has a hobby has a collection of supplies. And even if you're just getting started on what you hope is a lifelong venture, you'll have things you need to organize for efficiency and convenience, as well as pieces that require storage until they're used. That's where hobby, crafts, and sewing storage comes in. You'll find storage cabinets, sewing machine cabinets, caddies, paper holders, magazine files, filing cabinets, desktop organizers, knitting/crochet hook organizers, modular shelves and drawers, and baskets and trays—all to fill those needs.

Storage Cabinets

Storage cabinets intended for hobbies often resemble armoires or dresser-type furniture pieces. They may be outfitted with more drawers or subdivided into smaller compartments than a typical bookshelf in order to make storing small supplies easier.

Product Features

It may not seem as though a sewing machine cabinet and a knitting roll-up organizer have anything in common; they're two separate hobbies with two separate storage pieces that serve differing functions. But in fact, the same questions can be asked of each item. How does its design work with the rest of the room in which it will reside, or your home as a whole? How does the material or color and pattern work both in look and function? And what implications do the capacity and size have for not only your present-day storage needs, but your craft, hobby, and sewing needs in the future? Here's a guide to help.

Color/Pattern

As pretty as the projects you finish, your hobby, craft, and sewing storage should be attractive, too. Particularly if you don't have a dedicated hobby space, your items may have to integrate into the rest of your home, and color and pattern will help them do that.

Material

Fabric boxes, wood shelves, plastic baskets: You'll find them all, as well as any number of other materials or material combinations, as you review hobby storage options. Material choices should be evaluated for how well they fit into your decor and your storage needs.

Capacity/Size

Not only should the size be appropriate to the room it will live in and the size of the supplies that it needs to hold, but any hobby, craft, or sewing storage piece should also have capacity enough to deal with any growth in those necessities.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

What does your home look like, and how do your hobbies fit into that daily lifestyle? Those are questions every hobbyist—sewer, crafter, scrapbooker, and more—should ask themselves as they're making purchases to store all those supplies. Once that's answered, it's time to review key purchase considerations. Those include portability, flexibility, and appearance. We've gathered tips and information for you to consider as you search for the perfect hobby storage items.

Portability

Do you often travel with your crafts project? Or if you lack a dedicated office or work space, do you move from room to room with your supplies? Then portability should be a key consideration that affects your purchase.

Flexibility

Hobbies and crafts pursuits have a way of changing, one morphing into another or one going by the wayside when interests, time, and passions change. Those hobby, craft, and sewing storage items that can adapt with you will better fill long-term needs.

Appearance

The goal of any storage piece, no matter the function, should be to tidy up and give order to supplies as well as the room in general. Choose hobby, craft, and sewing storage pieces that you'll enjoy looking at on a daily basis.
