    A Room for Sewing

    "Poetry is the synthesis
    of hyacinths and biscuits."
    ~ Carl Sandburg

    guest/sewing room

    beads in spice jars

    Sewing space since August (aka dining room table).

    Moved all sewing stuff upstairs to the guest room.

    It's out of the way, not in the center of things...

    I tend to forget what I don't see.

    But it was time.

    Hi Tammy,
    Your new sewing/guest room looks lovely. It looks as if it has plenty of naturall light in there, Your dinning room window has a very pretty view, I love the style of your windows too. I have a very large dining table that I can use for sewig, crafting etc. but the down side is that it all has to be tidied away afterwards. One day maybe, I'll have a dedicated arty/crafty room again.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Su

    Sue I have the same problem, but have organised myself with a storage box that everything goes into except the sewing machine!

    Su and Jaki, I keep all of the other art materials in lidded baskets on shelves off the laundry room. So my world (other than sewing) is take out - use - put away. The guest room slash sewing space will still need to be cleaned up when we have guests of course. I can't paint in the room, because of the carpet and no nearby sink for clean-up! The light is actually very weak, so I'll need a few lamps! I wish, wish, wish to have a messy artspace with magical light!

    Your sewing space in the guest room is lovely. I know what you mean though with the out of sight out of mind reference. I have a lovely work space set up with my art and sewing stuff in the basement but I'm more likely to actually do creative things at the dining room table in the center of all the household action.

    Looks great, but I definitely understand the dilemma.

    It's awesome that you found a 'home' for your sewing studio, Tammy! Alas, I end up dragging my poor portable from pillar to post, as there's no room in my studio. How I wish I could leave it out and at the ready!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    Congratulations! With our last move, I was lucky enough to move up from a sewing space in another room to a separate workroom, just for sewing, knitting and art. It's twice as big as the guest room, but it gets *way* more than twice the use...
