Hello sewing friends! Hope you enjoy looking at the photo's of my "new" and improved sewing studio. Of course I did not get rid of any of my precious stash but...I did organize it with some new shelves and rolling bins.
I purchased the bookshelves at office depot and the rolling bins from the container store. Outside of my office I also purchased some metal shelves to store all the new items that I am now stocking for my site. Lots of fiber arts tools, applique pressing sheets, quilters gift cards, fabric paints, etc.
In the past I have kept my walls white, but am now hanging quilts, dry erase board, cork boards (one for upcomming contests and quilt challenges) and one for stuff that I can't forget to do. I am really enjoying the design wall that Drew and I built, of all the things I have added over the last year it's one of my favorites. What a difference it makes to be able to lay out all my blocks and inspirational goodies (cards, pieces of fabrics, specialty thread, photo's from magazines, drawings.)
|Sewing Area - with the sewing machine and my new "happy" Lamp that Randy got me for mothers day. I like having my sewing table moved here so that I can look out the window and day dream.|
|Embroidery and Serger Space with design wall that has hooks to hang patterns that I want to make someday. You can see the bbq quilt that I was working on at the time. I love the new table that the embroidery machine is on, it has these great bins that I can keep all my stabilizers in.|
|Art Center where I paint and dye fabrics. I found a fantastic little ink art organizer at hobby lobby for only $5.99. It is on a lazy susan that holds ink pens and little tubs of ink. On the wall I have all my different threads, but in September I am attending the Sulky certification so after that I will be using sulky exclusively.|
|New book shelves to organize fabric pieces - fat quarters mostly (black shelf) and bolts of fabric on the white shelf. I also found a really neat metal shelf that was meant for a bathroom but is the perfect size to fit into the corner. I have all my to do some day projects that I have purchased fabric collections to complete.|
