My Sewing Room/Studio

Hello! I hope you are all enjoying a nice relaxing Sunday. My Sewing Space is being featured on the Mad About Patchwork blog as part of their Sew Canadian studio tour of Canadian Sewing Spaces. There is an opportunity for readers to link up their spaces too and enter to win an ombre sewing kit so be sure to check it out. There's a button in my button bar on the right that you can click on as well. It looks like this:


 My three tiered basked of pre-cuts and half yard cuts of fabric. To top basket contains mostly Bonnie & Camille.
 Some of my yarn on the shelves. Scrapbooking and stamping supplies on the white shelves on the wall and my Aurifil thread and Divine twin on the turquoise shelf above the hat boxes. Under the hat boxes is my antique sewing machine that you see in my blog header. It was my Grandma's machine.
 This is the room after I cleaned for a whole morning! And it still looks messy. Ha Ha! :) This is in the basement of military housing so there are no ceilings. This is so they can access pipes and electrical if repairs are needed and so it is classified as an "unifinished" basement.
 The wall by the basement stairs. Sometimes when the kids charge down the stairs things fall off my shelves. :/ (frowny face)
Looking back the other way. The dresser is full of fabric but I need to empty it as I need it for baby clothes soon. Fabric scraps are sorted by colour and piled in baskets just out of this shot. You can see a bit in the lower left corner of the photo. My computer that I am typing this blog post on is on the far wall in this shot. On the right of the shot is overflow from my kitchen. (Not enough cupboards in this house! Typical basement right!?)

So that's my studio, as good as it gets right now. Not the dream studio I have in my head but it works. I have answered some interview questions on the Mad About Patchwork post so make sure you check that out and you can see the studio of Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts on that post as well.

  4. Hi Anita and thanks for the tour of your sewing space. Looks like you have lots of room but like me, more room means there is more space to keep organized! Does your grandma's sewing machine work?

  6. This looks like a nice roomy space to sew in. I laughed at your comment about cleaning the studio for a whole morning. There are always piles of fabric on the floor in my space!
