Where I Sew

This spring we moved to a new house. My husband worked very hard to complete my new sewing room just the way I want it. Most of the furniture, walls, blinds, etc. are white. That lets the fabric, thread, yarn, and projects add most of the color. I love it!

He installed cabinets and two permanent tables for my machines. I have lots of wonderful light, too! In fact, we've laughed about how bright it is, but working in it is a dream!

I have lots of these rolling drawers under each table to store patterns, interfacing, and office supplies. I love them because I can move them easily and I've organized my patterns by project type.

I have an ironing station here. All my sprays and supplies are in the short cabinet above.

We bought this kitchen island to be my cutting table. It has an extension that can fold up which makes it perfect for wider fabrics, plus it's more storage.

I even have room to display some of my collectibles. These are yard sale finds. There's some knitting, too. I keep my shawls on the dressmaker's doll.

My room is the best sewing room I've ever had!
