Patchwork & Quilting

A New Sewing Space

Last week was moving week. All of my sewing stuff – my big sewing table included – was shipped, hauled and moved into another room in our house. Previously it was mum’s ‘office’ for when she worked fulltime as a primary teacher. And previous to that it was my older brothers room before he moved out.

But now, it’s mine!

It took a good four days to get everything just the way I wanted: two to move everything and another two to sort everything out!

Being the diligent-and-ever-so-organised-OCD-person that I am, I first made a to-scale plan-o-gram of the room with to-scale cutouts of the furniture that needed to be in the room. Here I was able to swap, shift and move stuff so that the dimensions of the room would work for the intended outcome – to sew!! (And to study…)

I ensured I had sufficient room for a design wall so I could see the layout of my quilts coming together, that the power-point was in easy reach and could be accessed by the iron as well as making sure enough light could flow into the room for both sewing and studying purposes!

And here it is!

And again at a fancy angle…

I was able to capture these angles using an app I downloaded onto my iPad –

And so, a new space creates new and fresh perspectives – here are a few of my favourite aspects of my new ‘studio’!
