As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I had some big changes occur over the late spring and summer, one the biggest of which was that I moved. On the whole, that was an excellent change, as I never really loved the house I was living in. It was too small and rather ordinary, truth be told. However, it did have an excellent sewing studio, which I think my husband cracked up to sweeten the pot, since I wasn't thrilled with the rest of the place. Nothing lasts forever though, and this summer, I said "bye bye" to the Excellent Sewing Studio and moved.
This is a peek at my new sewing space, which is an extra bedroom in the new house. The room is large and has very high ceilings. The plusses are that my big double sewing table fits, as do my dresser and bookcase and cutting table. The down side is that the floor is carpeted (not a great feature in a craft room because pins get stuck in it). There is a nice big closet, in which I plan to have many shelves installed. However handy those shelves will be, they are completely inadequate to house my stash of fabric. I am working on a storage solution for that, but it may be a while before it is accomplished. I will keep you posted!
There is a big window under which I placed my cutting table, which provides a nice breeze and a fantastic view of the hills. There is ample wall space for placing design walls. You can see some of my current projects on it now. What I do need is better overhead lighting, which I hope to achieve by installing a ceiling fan with at least four lights. I have a peg board for storing all my rulers, which I finally got painted white after a decade of it being a dreary brown.
All in all, it is a more than adequate sewing area, and once I solve my stash storage issue, it will be just about perfect!
