Many of you have asked for me to share my new sewing room with you. It's a first for me, so you can imagine how excited I am. Before having this studio, I designed every quilt you see as a pattern on my dining room table. My table is 10 feet long and so I was able to keep the mess to one end and eat dinner at the other. Sometimes the mess crowded in on dinner, and of course when company came, I had to clean up the whole thing. I was just happy to be sewing that it didn't matter.........until I got to see sewing studio's that other people have. So, I'm happy to share with you the before pictures, the current pictures and also when it's totally completed.
Before it became a sewing room, it was a back porch. We never used it as such, so it was a perfect place to make into a room to house all the Primitive Pieces by Lynda quilts that were in the making.
The porch measured 40 feet long by 12 feet wide and had two sets of french doors that came off the dining room. If this was going to be the place, I didn't even have to go outside to start work in the morning.
Skeeter, one of our bloodhounds made sure everything went well during the construction process
The shelves have been primed and painted and ready to be loaded........very soon!
The floor was primed and painted with two coats of barn red paint. It seemed to take forever to dry....delaying the moving in process.
mini blinds have been ordered for the windows and a curtain will cover the door.
a design wall was made and from my kitchen window I can look out into the room and make sure what's hanging on that wall looks ok.
Baseboards and electrical outlet covers are drying and will be installed soon. That's about all that is left to do.
Moving day did arrive and it was a very exciting day. This is what you see when the french doors are opened. It's an area where one can sit and hand applique, hook, knit, etc.
Filling the shelves with fabric has been both a chore and a delight. I found that before I could even start on the downstairs shower (remember those 28 bags of fabric you've heard about?) I had to get what was sitting out and about on them first. So, it is a few pictures into the future where you'll see all the shelves full.
This old dresser will house office stuff once my computer cupboard gets in the room.
I found this wonderful tall skinny drawer unit in a favorite antique shop. It's perfect to store notions and sits behind where I'll be sewing.

This cubby works really well for skeins of wool. Part of the fabric was rearranged so this could sit under the window.
This black wall cupboard was brought down from upstairs, hung on the wall and now holds yarn. Hopefully, I can find a wonderful cubby to sit on the floor under it...or perhaps a small table. Searching out pieces is always a fun time for me.
There will be an office end to the room. I'm still trying to find an old piece of furniture that will house my computer, etc.
Down in the sewing end, there is a bookshelf that wool and wool yarn is stored. Look for some fun projects coming your way!
A computer cupboard now sits in the office end of the room. My husband built me this cupboard. I painted it and distressed it and just love the way it looks. The office end is slowly becoming just that. I have a black filing cabinet that's modern so have hidden it between the french doors. Can't see it when they are open. Hopefully this end will be finished soon.
