My Studio

Because I LOVE seeing where other women create, I wanted to share my studio also.  It’s changed many times over as it’s always evolving.  It’s a smallish room and is a loft in our home.  I love the natural sunlight that comes thru the windows (although sometimes too much light at times), but love it still.

As of Sept 2016

Starting at the left is my cutting table.  I made this from ordering a table top from Ikea and placing it on two old Target bookshelves I had.  That migrated to using a tall bookshelf and a shorter one.  I found I wanted/needed some space to place tools etc above my cutting table.  Works beautifully!

Sept 2015  I stored projects on the shelves at this time and had my drawers filled with batting and stabilizer below.  This was ok, but didn’t like sitting at the table and hitting my knees and found I was always getting up and getting my tools from across the room.

Sept 2016 I have moved out the Drawer Units and now store my art table under so I can pull out when I need an extra for laying out things.

Sept 2016 I have moved out the Drawer Units, switched out the black shelf for the slightly lower grey shelf (and also so that both black shelves are now under a new Design wall),  and now store my art table under so I can pull out when I need an extra space for laying out things. I Used cafe tension rods inside the shelf that holds my Freezer paper, Heat N Bond roll and also a full roll of batting.  I love that I can just pull up and over to my table top when I need any of these and cut off what I need and roll back the excess.  No more going to the spare room to get my bolt of batting.  I just need to get one more rod to hold my roll of Stabilizer for this to be complete and move those last boxes of scraps on the bottom shelf and I will be a happy camper!

Looking towards the East wall across the cutting table you can see my Design Wall and Ironing board I made. All conveniently located while I work.

All conveniently located while I work.  OH and a NEW large Alvin cutting mat!  Mine was over 25 years old and had gotten warped somewhere along the way.  I found this on Amazon and a killer price.  It’s reversible being black on one side and green on the other and self healing.  I LOVE this mat!

Below is how it was in 2015.  Small sewing table and no design wall. CD holder storing fat quarters of fabrics. Folding TV tray turned ironing board next to sewing machine table.
