Do you have a room; a small space, a large place, a secret hiding place or nook in your home dedicated to your sewing projects?
In my new home I have a small room, which was probably a maid’s room at some time in the early 1900s, that has been donned as the sewing room. It is a very sweet space with moldings on one wall, tin ceilings, a large window and an even larger built-in cabinet. I painted this room the color of “Heirloom Lace”, installed an old Victorian shelf above my desk, placed some amethyst & crystals on the windowsill and began working on my design projects before even painting the trim or the baseboards or molding. I’d like to place some cork board on the wall, paint it white to create a blank canvas to pin up images of inspiration, drawings my friends have made me, photos and art. My boyfriend & I plan to build a large cutting / screen printing table in the adjacent room, but for the time being I feel settled enough to sit and work.
Where do you work? Do you surround yourself with striking visuals or prefer a more minimalist setting? Does it matter where you sew if you’re really into the project anyway?
We are working on posting a slide show or presentation to feature your sewing spaces. We are troubleshooting exactly how we are going to present this to the community, but in the meantime, anyone who wishes to submit photos of their sewing rooms can do so by following these directions:
