I’ve been wanting to share my sewing space for a while now but somehow never got around to it. One of the great things about sewing is that you can do it almost anywhere. The dining room table, the corner of a bedroom, or a multi-purpose guest room. I know one woman who inherited her mother’s home and turned the entire house into a massive sewing, quilting, and crafting studio. Just think of the space you would have to “stash” fabrics, thread, buttons, pretty papers, sewing machines, and more! My space is a converted one-car garage, which is connected to our family room/kitchen area. It is about 200 square feet and works great, except that it is a little more narrow than I would like.
But I’m saying goodbye to my studio because my husband and I are moving from Southern California to the Nashville area of Tennessee (my home state). For the past year, we have been planning, designing, and creating a brand new house with a studio space that is over twice the size of the one I have now. The house will not be ready for a couple of months so we (including my sewing machine) are “visiting” one of my sisters in Florida for a while. So I decided to show you my space before it was too late. Click here for a short video of my sewing studio.
What does your sewing, quilting, and/or crafting space(s) look like? I’d love know where you create and what you like or don’t like about it. Feel free to share photos because we all know sewists are usually very visual! Later this Fall, I’ll share my new studio and we’ll discuss organization and storage options, because I’ll be looking for ideas!
