Where I Sew

I decided to join in on the blog tour hosted by Pink Chalk Fabrics of "Where I Sew". There are also posts by designers about their sewing space. Go here to take a look at all the sewing spaces.

I was going to share where I sew before I discovered the blog tour. We moved to a new home in June and I finally have most things where I want them. The above shelf is in our bedroom. Upstairs.

My yarn stash takes up 3 cubbies.

My fabric stash, quilt books and UFO's take up most of the other cubbies.

On top (beside the printer), is a yellow basket I couldn't pass up at Michael's last year and a stack of 3 very special quilts. I'll be sharing these quilts and some others in a series of posts every Wednesday in August. (My husband made the little origami bunny that is sitting in front of them).

Now, to my actual sewing space. It is downstairs in the garage. The lighting is ok, the privacy is amazing and if I want to be a part of what is going on, I just open the door going into the house, that opens onto the dining room/kitchen/ living room. It's great to leave a frustrating project behind doors, and not have to clean up too much when I'm in the middle of something.

Above my table, I have hung rulers, pictures I love and some mini crafts. My sister made me the Iris wall hanging, I made the butterfly cross-stitch when I was 8 or 9, and the house in the middle was painted by my mom when she was pregnant with me.

To the side is my ironing board. It's nice to finally have a regular size board. Before we moved to this house, I had been using a mini-ironing board on top of my quilt table. I use my quilt rack to hold ironed fabrics and quilt tops waiting to be quilted.

Thanks for visiting my sewing space. 


  1. I am envious of your new work space, Lots of good things will come from there!

  2. Oh I agree - it is great to have a space where you can be creative, but then shut the door if you need to. Hope you have many happy and creative hours in you sewing space!
