    My Quilting Studio

    I feel very fortunate to have this space. It's long and narrow but it works. My small group.. "EZ Strippers" spent about 3 months studying how to rearrange our rooms, and clean up the mess.. here is mine. I love the wire basket units that came from Home Depot.. not cheap but I already had the 3 shorter ones and one of the taller ones... so had to complete the room with them, great for storing thread and you can pull out the drawers and take a look... love the drawers under my table by my sewing machine...

    What a great room. I love the fact you can just swivel in your chair to reach so many things. Thanks for sharing.

    Quilting is my therapy

    My business is called "Serendipity Quilting" ...where the unexpected happens... so have to have lots of thread... and never the right color... Right now the quilt I'm quilting has 4 colors of thread... the last one had 20 and I've gone as high as 40 different colors... If I'm doing block work I like to match thread with the colors in the block..
    Thanks for your comments

    small studio space

    I think your use of space is wonderful. I am amazed that you can get a LA in there! There is hope for my studio now! I just need to sit down and think about what I need to go where. Thanks for the pic.

    Oh, I'm so glad to see that a long and narrow room space is functional for a full size long-arm setup. I am planning on doing long-arm services when I get to retiring (10+ years to wait yet though). I am hoping to be able to enclose my long and narrow patio for a studio.

    Wow, you've packed a lot of stuff into your space. And so organized. My sewing room looks like an episode of "Hoarders". Good thing the rest of my house doesn't or the health dept would be after me!

    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Your quilt room is like mine. I can get anywhere in my room on my rolling chair. Lazy me. I have a long arm table that won't fit in there so it's still in its original boxes. I haven't even opened them and looked at it because I would want to put it up. My kids are grown and it's just me and my husband and we don't really have company since we live so far from town that I've been thinking about storing my dining room table (we never sit at it, we sit at the kitchen table) in one of my outbuildings and putting up the long arm there. It has perfect lighting and lots of room. Would that look horrible if someone out of the blue showed up at my house?

    Looks like those wire baskets are ideal for storing thread. Great sewing room.
