    hi everyone!!!..

    ok, so it bites that i haven't yet had the patience to work out how to post pics on here..but i will..takes a while (i'm an old dog, thats a new trick etc)......

    whinge first..my back hurts!!!!!..done..

    i spent 4 whole days and nights moving all my sewing stuff from the small back room (which was really a fat hallway with 2 many doors coming off it) to the sunroom at the front of the house..also with a few too many doors but ones i could block off..mostly..

    and i have to say..i truly am a legend..you're all welcome to jump on a plane and come over to see for yourselves, but yep, i have impressed the daylights out of myself..

    bought myself the new janome horizon and the nice man threw in the table also, so the princess sunk into her horn cabinet for the very last time and they disappeared downstairs to be sold..gee i hated that machine..i have for the 12 yrs i owned her, dressmaker, patchworker, you name it, that machine taught me to swear like a truckie..it also stopped me enjoying sewing..

    the horizon is better than.........chocolate..i love her..and my 'studio' (named by a male friend who was also suitably impressed and thought 'sewing room' didnt do it justice) is pure magic..i have big shelves, and a big cupboard, a huge 4ft square cutting table on high legs coz im really tall, a long table to set up my second machine and overlocker at a 45 degree angle to my horizon, my treadle for decoration, my lightbox, and drawers and baskets and tubs and and and and...okay, i spoilt myself..

    yes, i can hear you..you want pics..sigh..is there somewhere on this site with a tutorial for posting pics?..coz i really want to share..

    this has been many years coming, and as a designer/teacher i spend alot of time in there..no guilt!!..i used to just have the kitchen table between meals..anyone else want to share their 'spaces'?..

    huggs..pami in australia :)

    You are so funny, Pami! Hope we can see pics of the studio. I think the Horizon looks fabulous. I was just admiring it the other day.

    you guys are so nice!!!..huggs!!

    well i've gotta go get boring icky food shopping done but then i'm taking pics and posting them (thankyous to all the lovely ladies who have added/sent instructions - lets see how dumb i am :-/)

    featherweight, take a big bow!!!..that IS a studio, absolutely wonderful, i love it!!!

    mine is probably more a study in "how-to-fit-lots-and-lots-of-sewing-crap-that-doesn't-match-but-will-do-the-job-into-a-smallish-room"..lol..okay, so if i opened up the french doors into my doll room and took over that too i'd have a winner..but if my dolls seep out into the rest of the house my daughter will go nuts..woe is the mommy who has too many hobbies!!..lol

    will be back later once the boring stuff's done..huggs girls!!..pami

    I love it! I think white walls and furniture in a sewing room is the perfect sewing studio look. It's great to have a room you smile everything you enter it.

    Would you believe me if I told you that all the stuff hanging on the wall except the quilts, I found at different thrift stores. When I started decorating my studio, I just kept finding this neat sewing stuff. I just could'nt resist any of it. I have so much stuff on the walls that I don't have room for my design wall.

    Pami, if nothing else, do you know how to email pictures? You could email them to a quilter here and they could post the pictures for you! (not me---I'm on boardband and uploading is slow!)

    Water bed underdrawers, (Iron surface) cabinets


    ******************

    you've just given me a great idea. My now married daughter's twin sized bed has 4 huge drawers under it. Hubby has been wanting to get rid of the bed. Might use the frame of it for a table/desk with drawers. I'll have to go look at it good and see if there's a table/desk there.

    Thanks for the idea.

    Grannie Annie, I had two sets of drawers under my waterbed. We stacked them up and they are the perfect heighth for me. DH cut a piece of plywood to fit and I covered it with batting and the teflon fabric. I can iron 2 yds of fabric aat once. Works for me.

    WOW, I love your studio, and you are very lucky. What quilter wouldn't give to have such a nice bright spacious organized room like yours. Wonderful!
