Well, good morning everyone - and welcome to my sewing room! I'm so glad you decided to come for the tour! :)
As you walk in to my room you'll see the predominant feature is the thread wall - hanging on the back on a pegboard. On the same pegboard, you'll find my rulers, some templates and a little bag I hang around my neck when I'm working that has scissors, tweezers, etc. in it.
Behind my chair, you'll also see that Charlie's aquarium got upgraded - in fact, Charlie's not even in there anymore - I got him some friends, he didn't like them, so Charlie got moved upstairs and the friends (plus more of their friends) now live with me.
As you turn to the left, you'll see:
Some of my fabric stash - yardage of 3 or more yards folded 12 inches across in the white boxes, and yardage of 1-3 yards folded in small lengths in the boxes. You can also see my drafting table, and under it a basket containing some WIPs and batting. (The cushion in the window is for the day supervisor.)
Inside my drafting table are my acrylic paints, watercolour paints in tubes, watercolour crayons, coloured and black charcoals, fabric dye crayons, pastels, micron pens and "gilt" pens in gold and silver.
If you look along that same wall you'll see my stretcher frames in various sizes which I use when I'm painting on fabric as well as a little bookshelf , which is just inside the door.
All of those shelves contain baskets with craft paints, the rest of my thread, and assorted bits and bobs (buttons in containers, beads, all kinds of things). On the top shelf is a portable container that has all of my various rotary cutters, scissors, marking pencils, regular pencils and pens, measuring tapes and small rulers that can't hang on my peg board (without making it look insane, that is.) The smaller containers to the right have in them a small colour wheel, and saftey pins, and the round black container with the white bow on top has my pins in it.
If you swing around you'll see almost all my dressers from Ikea. (Wait to see why narrow profile dressers are great idea in a sewing room!)There are 8 of them in total - four are stacked two by two on either side of the bookcase. In the bookcase are all books related to quilting, surface design and sewing, along with magazines of the same theme. There is drawer in the bottom of the bookcase which has another one of those black baskets with ribbons in it, and the rest of the drawer is packed with patterns.
On top of the dressers to the left are three of my seven (!) sewing machines and the aquarium, and on top of the others are more quilt magazines, a plastic container with all of my various kinds of brushes/ tools for using soy wax, a clock, a plant and of course, my selection of Barbie-dolls. ('Cuz every once in a while, to entertain myself, I make Barbie clothes - which eventually get given to my great-niece.)
And what's in my drawers you ask? The rest of my stash of course! Every drawer contains its own colour:
Under the table is this little basketry/shelving contraption which contains all of my dyeing things:
Like the above - each shelf has it's own thing.
And from this angle, you can see my design wall and my Judy. If you look to the left of the photo, you can also see peeking out where my rolls of steam-a-seam, stitch witchery, stabilizer, pellon and fusible interfacing live, and my iron is tucked in there too.
But I figured it was close enough to bright to show it to you. Maybe it'll give you some ideas for your sewing room too!
Hope you'll come by and visit some time! Maybe this weekend. :)
