Sewing Room Rearranging

I set up this sewing space nearly nine years ago. It has undergone minor changes since then, but I decided it needed a major overhaul after returning from Arizona. I think it is a great boost for your creativity. You can see previous photos by clicking on the Sewing Room Pics link on the sidebar.

One of the biggest changes, was moving my fabric storage. I used to have my embroidery machine here, but it lives in AZ now.

I still have lots of work to do sorting and refolding fabric. I also need to work on the countertop.

This area hasn’t changed much.

But this has. I moved my long arm, Friday, and created this taller cutting table/island. This has been working out very well.

I also recovered my design wall.

The Hoosier cabinet stayed put.

And here is Friday. I have quilts for my show waiting for sleeves there.

My “ parts department “.

And my desk.

I now have two islands. This one has my Juki which is my main piecing machine.

The cart in the corner holds miscellany. Then my ironing table.

Moving around, you find my Pfaff which is mainly used for binding.

And the my studio die cutter.

Those tubs of scraps need to be dealt with! There is so much more work to be done, but I’m glad to be this far along in the process.

Have a great day!

    Your space looks great! Can you comment on how you made your big board ironing table? I just bought a used sideboard/buffet that I’m going to use as an ironing table, and am curious if you covered plywood with batting and heat resistant fabric for the top? And is it anchored to the table, does it slide around if not? Thanks for any tips you have!
