A Clean Studio

 A while back, October, maybe? I did a major clean on my studio. The studio is still pretty clean because we had a trip to Tennessee to see family and then all the holidays and I haven't had time to pack-rat stash stuff everywhere! I thought you might like to see it? The last time I posted about my studio was 5 years ago here. We've grown a bit since then!

These are my two sewing stations, one modern (Fern), one vintage (Jake). They sit (plop) in the middle of the room, which is about 10 by 10 feet. The picture was taken from the entry door.

Yup, that door right there! Behind the door is a pegboard to hold all my quilting rulers.

To the left, there is my stitching/computer area. I learned to stitch at a table and never got the hang of doing it on a couch or chair. To the right is a CD storage cabinet that I use to hold my embroidery floss. I've posted about it before here. I can just spin my chair around to be able to sew on Jake the Singer 404.

This is my ironing/fabric cutting station. Dash made this for me with an IKEA storage unit on casters and added a plywood top. It works like a dream, I iron on one end and cut fabric on the other. The storage on this is awesome. How much could you store under a traditional ironing board?

Another view from the doorway focusing on the bookcases I have for storage. Everything is there from fabric for cross stitching and sewing to my vintage sewing machines to pattern/design books. I even have a TV to watch AndyTube whilst I sew. Okay, I admit to being a vintage sewing machine nerd!

Oh, how I love my space! I don't care if you only have a basket beside an old ratty chair...it's your space! I know you love the needle arts as much as I and I'd love to see where you stitch!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

What a fabulous space you have! I really like your ironing/cutting set up. And I do agree with you on having one's space whether it is a room or just a corner.

What a lot of sewing mashines! And what an abolutely adorable working space. Yes, how much can I store beneath my ironing board ... nothing. Love your contraptions!

A most sweet spot. Looks like you have a thing for vintage sewing boxes too! I had a pink one with lift out tray for my first home-ec class in 7th grade.

You have a great space! My space is only slightly larger but I do have a closet. It's amazing how much goodies can fit in my room!
