Big Changes

Most of you know that we bought our home a little over a year ago...well, when we moved in I had decided to make one of the bedrooms a sewing room.  The room was small, but served a purpose and it worked.  I decided that we have too many people coming and going from our home to have my sewing/quilting things spread from one end of the house to the other, so we converted the garage into a wonderful sewing/quilting studio.  I do not have the walls painted, yet and have a little more work to do, but I couldn't wait any longer.  I had to get started on moving things....and LOTS of things I have!!!

The 14' quilting machine is in the middle of the room with embroidery machine, serger and sewing machine set in the "L" shape in the corner....have an organizing drawer unit that I bought from an old Hallmark store....pretty cheap, nice and stacks nicely.  On the opposite side is the cutting table large ironing board and about 20' of design wall....I think it will be nice when I get everything done.  My plan is to have enclosed cupboards on the walls above the "L" area.
My poor room is a MESS.  Now for the re-organizing and finding places for everything out in the new studio.  This is almost overwhelming to look at.  Without the cupboards on the wall in the new area, it is tough to find a spot to put all this....better get moving, so I can get more done today.  Hate to be down very long, I have to keep business going while  in reconstruction.  Once all is done it will be fantastic!


  1. This is truly a quilter's dream, all that room for creating in! Hope you get it all done ~

  2. Good for you! Big job - good results!
