Who wants a tour?

Posted by on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks measuring and cataloging and giving some serious consideration to all of my supplies and tools here in my sweatshop studio.  I officially have an embarrassment of riches, my friends.  I knew that before I started, but now that I have a handy spreadsheet with all of the details waiting for me on google docs, I can figure out whether I already have the supplies to make something before I get that terrible urge to buy some more goodies. Compared to a lot of people I know, I have relatively little yarn.  But the fabric–oh, the fabric.  I have a lot of fabric.  But all of that tallying and sorting and organizing and pressing and folding and re-skeining and winding has left my studio looking absolutely lovely.  So come on in and have a peek.

Only one question remains . . . What do I work on next?

    Wow! Your depth of skills and heights of creativity are so beautiful. I was kind of tempted to send you a photo of my pitiful sewing arrangements during remodeling, but I don’t want to detract from your exquisite work.

    What makes it a great space is that it is filled with things you love–I enjoyed your tour!

    Ooh, I’m envious. I’ve never been able to organize everything at the same time to get my space that well organized.

    Glad to see you use and love the thread caddy. It was my greaat grandfather who made most of them but my grandpa made a few too so it could be either one. I think there were 8 or 10 of them in my great grandma’s sewing room. She was a professional seamstress.

    Thanks so much for sharing your creative space! I love that it is so full of beautiful things that have so much meaning for you…coming from friends, or holding special memories. What a treasure. (If you find a substitute for the plastic drawers, be sure to let us know! I hate them, too.)
