The New Sewing Studio

Craft Envy…Having A Place Of My Own


What used to be a chicken coop became a cabin and has now become a sewing studio!  In the above picture, the flannel board on the right sits on the floor waiting to be hung with the same clips used to hang mirrors.


Over the years, I have been having this running conversation with my husband.  I have been stuck on this thought, and I have been telling Tim I wanted my tombstone to say, “I finally got my own room.”  Now that I have this sewing space and the quilt room by way of the converted greenhouse, I’m thinking I will need to come up with something new for my tombstone.


The furniture from around my house and from my garage fit nicely.



Just a few years ago, Steve & Christine Rogerson donated the sliding glass door when the new cabin was in progress!  Now look at what a beautiful space this will be for sewing quilt projects together!


This 25 square box shelf can be purchased on line (or by phone or mail) from Pottery Barn. It only comes in dark stained wood and can be found in the office section of the catalog.  A good 8-10 years ago, my sons, Ben and Wes, helped me paint each of the boxes white as a summer group project.

The blessing of having this studio will be I won’t have to put away projects while I’m working on them.


Did I mention how quiet this room is?  I really enjoy quiet reflective time to process the day. I, also, like to concentrate on  the person the quilt project is being made for when I am designing, cutting, sewing, and arranging the fabrics.
