My Sewing Nook
I thought I'd share some pics of my sewing space. It's not huge and it's not fancy, but it works for me. For now anyway. lol My husband told me I couldn't even entertain the idea of taking over the garage or the bedroom.
My little space is set up in a built in corner bench in my kitchen area.
My machines are my mom's old Singer, and the other day she gave me her old Janome serger. Until I can get something a little more stable, I've got them on tv trays.
This little three drawer cart holds my supplies, and I have that sorter holding my scissors, rulers, etc.
I set up my ironing board when I need it, and when I'm cutting out anything, I use my dining room table, which isn't far away.
Nothen like having your own space, love the lace sorter !
happy quilting !
A fabulous beginning! You are on your way to taking over a bedroom or the garage! Your husband will figure it out in awhile!
LOL Grandma58 - Since he works in the oilfield and is gone alot, I could have the space taken over before he'd even notice!:D
Great use of the space! It is amazing how us quilters can get such a functional work area, all organized, with a very limited space! I had to reduce mine when we moved, from a large bedroom and wall-to-wall closet, to a small nook with no closet (I have to use my bedroom closet, which thankfully, is a large one) to store all fabrics, and some tall wire shelving and a couple of tressel tables. When my ironing board is up, there is just enough room for me to take one step around! But, I make it work!
What a nice space you have made for yourself! I have a few of the plastic drawers and love them.
Do you have storage under the bench seats? There is usually a empty area under them.
It's a sweet little nook because it's all yours! When looking at your picture an idea came to me. Wouldn't that be a great spot for one of the hospital bedside table to put your machine on? You know the ones that you can raise and lower and that has nice rollers on the feet. I'm thinking I need to be on the lookout for one of those!
Nice usage of your space. Small and compact. But, you have it organized nicely. Enjoy your little niche.
