“Where I Sew” Photo Mosaic
During the month of July, you are invited to add a photo of your sewing space to the mosaic at Where I Sew.
I just found this site tonight and I decided I better quickly neaten my sewing space so I can take some photos and add my room to the mosaic.
We moved into this house earlier this year and my sewing room was the first room to get a new floor and paint on the walls.
This is the wall I see as I enter the room.
I made this Thread Rack a couple of years ago so I would have somewhere handy to store my embroidery thread. It was originally one large piece when I lived in my house, then I cut it into 2 pieces so they could sit on the sewing desk when we moved into my husband’s house. Now that we are living in OUR house, it is back on the wall again. It fits perfectly behind the open door.
Lots of storage bins and shelve units in the double wide closet. I need to organize and purge my fabric and supplies. The bins make it look way more organized than it really is. The other side of the closet is just as full of bins as this side is.
My computer desk.
Right now, I have 2 printers, but will be moving the silver one out as soon as I can figure somewhere else in the house to keep it and still use it. The curtains on the large arched window are temporary, until I can figure out what I really want there. The white drawer unit under the desk is more embroidery thread.
I have several embroidery design discs and miscellaneous other “stuff” on the shelves above the serger and sewing machine. Right now the work table is a hollow core door sitting on top of 2 file cabinets. I am keeping my serger threads and accessories in the tubs below the serger. The black drawer unit under the sewing machine contains scissors, rotary cutters and many other sewing notions.
The tall bookcase holds my sewing books, several instructional vhs tapes and dvd’s.
The mess on the floor in front of my books is some of my latest Goodwill treasures waiting to be re-purposed.
The desk that my Brother Duetta 4500D Embroidery machine sits on is made from a recycled desk top sitting on top of 2 Ikea drawer units. These units hold a ton of stuff and I hope to get 2 more to replace the file cabinets in the under the hollow core door.
Back to where we started.
I keep most of my magazines in the short bookcase by the door. The white drawer unit in front of the magazines has no where else to go, so I am making use of it by keeping my cutting/pressing mat on top, and the iron can plug in close by. The larger 2 bottom drawers are both full of sewing patterns.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my sewing room. I will also be posting these photos on my Flickr page if you would like to see more details.
Thanks for looking!
