Over the years of sewing my own sewing spaces, one of the best was in Woodstock, VA when we lived there. It was in the basement, and it was a huge space that really let me spread out. I loved it there. Sadly, like all things in life, jobs were lost, and we ended up moving to San Diego, where I stopped sewing for quite a few years.
Today, my new sewing space in this house is in the Master Bedroom. I would have gladly gone to the basement, but there are a few issues with the basement.. First… Absolutely no bathroom at all exists in the basement… Second.. Two outlets in the entire space of the basement other than the laundry room.. A seamstress/quilter obviously needs more than two outlets. So, my hubby suggested I use the Master Bedroom. Other than no ceiling light in the room, it’s actually quite perfect for me. We are currently using the basement more for fabric storage… hehee…
So, this is how my room looks when you first walk into it:
Straight ahead of the door are shelving units, one that is currently being put together the others are done. To the right, the closed door is the bathroom.
If I were to walk into the shelving area, this is how it would look. I keep my embroidery hoops on a ruler hanger, and on shelf hooks. The hooks hold the hoops I use the most, the ruler hanger hangs the hoops I use the least. Most of the items in the bins in these shelves are all batiks, and landscape prints. The red baskets hold mostly UFO type projects, and supplies such as freezer paper, garbage bags, computer supplies and scrap bags of fabric.
I have rulers underneath the table laying in a magazine rack, with miniature ironing boards, and my cutting machine mats. I also have on the table, next to the Ott lite, a napkin holder that holds smaller rulers. The drawers next to the iron are all sewing machine supplies, needles, scissors, feet, etc..
and this shows the heart of my sewing room… computer, desktop, machines.. I like them all to be close to me, so I can literally turn and sew. My Bernie is a little farther away now, but I love that I have it on my L-shaped table again with a rotary mat and supplies right there to work while I sew. All my threads hang out in the drawer units under the tables with the machines.
The only reason this space is clean is because it’s been getting unpacked. It is unlikely it will ever be this clean again.. hehee
So, I mentioned fabric storage, and your probably thinking everything in this room is what all I have… but… nope..
Down in the basement, what came from San Diego is here…
All of these fabrics were bought in the 1990’s. Pretty Amazing.. eh!!
