Sewing room.

Sunday night was spent giving my sewing room an overhaul! I had too much furniture in the room, and the shelves on top of my sewing table were becoming very oppressive! A 'quick' re-arrange of a few pieces of furniture around (and out of) the room has left me with a much more functional sewing space.

I now have space for both my machines on my table now, with room to spare.

I will tell you more about this beauty soon...

Sewing patterns.

I am seriously excited about the coming weekend. You see, I have taken some leave from work and Mill and I are getting together for a sewing triathlon. No, not three items of sewing, but three whole days of sewing! We will be spending three whole days and two nights together in a massive sewing marathon. I can't wait! My list of projects I fear may be more than even three days of sewing can handle! Will share my plans later this week.

  1. Sewing room looks great Sam ,enjoy your weekend .

  2. Gosh, the marathon sounds like a great idea!! I love that you have a bed in your sewing room, lol! Talk about eat, sleep and breathe sewing!
    It's so liberating having a sort out. Your room looks fab and I notice a few of your recent thrifts being put to great use....I've been doing the same over the past few days, and I feel so much the better for it.

  3. Hi Sam,
    In the last month, I have just finished setting up my sewing studio.
    I have a dedicated old oak wooden table for my sewing machine and my overlocker. I have a bifold table as my work and cutting table. In the wardrobe I have set up with my fabric stash in those Ikea wardrobe hanging shelves, and a narrower set for my sewing patterns. Finally my dressmaker models complete the room.
    It now needs "finishing touches" to personalise it, An inspiration board, and a permanent solution for music as I love to listen to music as I sew.
    It is such a pleasure having a dedicated room for sewing.
    Your sewing studio looks wonderful. Happy creating!
