My Sewing Studio

Well, my studio was such a disorganized mess, it was long overdue for a good cleaning. I spent the last two days re-organizing everything. What a difference! It is so neat now, I can find everything instantly. I can't wait to get to work and mess it all up again. LOL

This is the area where I do most of the cutting and ironing. There is my beloved HP laptop. This was my Christmas gift from Mike. At the time, I didn't realize how much I would love it.

This is my main sewing machine, a Viking Designer I. I love, love, love this amazing machine, it doesn't just sew, it purrs its way through every project I take on. I have a flannel design wall hanging in front of the closet. Behind the curtain are many shelves with all sorts of fun materials waiting to play. Whenever I run across a good sale, I will buy several yards, and hang it on hangers in the closet. Not shown are quarter to half yard pieces, they are stored in drawers, sorted by color family.

This is my wall of fabric. One to two yard lengths are rolled up, tied and stored on end on these shelves. They are sorted by value, but I can see in this photo that a few pieces are out of place. Oh well, that will have to wait for another day!

Thanks for the tour! I love how all your rolled up fabric looks. It's an art statement all in itself. That flower project on your design wall looks beautiful, can we see it closer?

Wow, you weren't kidding when you said you were cleaning your studio! I haven't checked this out in a while... thanks for the mention under the Guild Challenge!

When I first saw those rolls of fabric I thought it was a quilt. I was thinking what a cool quilt it was. Too funny.

What a wonderful room, you lucky thing. I love all the rolled up fabrics arranged in that way. Lack of space means my fabrics and other bits are all in storage boxes. Mind you, it does have the advantage that sometimes when looking through them I come across something I forgot I had!!
