When you think something, you think in picture. You don't think a thought in words. You think a picture that expresses your thought. Working with this picture will produce it into your experience.
Today is the last day of Vicki Welsh's Real Studio Tour. We are supposed to share our studio with you. I've shown parts of my basement studio in the past. First I shared A Few Good Ideas with you. Then I showed you some pictures of how I Store Things.
Today I'll share a few more pictures of my work space with you. In the Longarm Studio you can find tools and office supplies.
|Tools and white board|
|Bobbin Winder and Inspiration Board|
|Desk and Bookcase|
|Metal Cabinet for Thread and Dyes|
Rack for Displaying Tops
|Another rack of stencils and tools|
Racks of quilt tops await my attention also.

Old Longarm is in the closet behind
In the main room of the studio is my cutting table, bookcase and ironing area. There is also a TV and piano. Art supplies are located in a dresser under the TV. (no picture)
A right turn here takes you into my Sewing Studio or to the stairs.
|Quilting and Art Books|
|Old Notions and Buttons in Jars |
Today the table is cleared enough to be used. Can't say that everyday. LOL You can see into the longarm studio here.
|Cutting TableYou can even see the matt today! |
|Strips in Bins|
|Big Ironing Board Workspace|
Since this is the Real Studio Tour I'll show you my Grandmother's Rocker which may or may not still be full of things waiting to be put away. Hey, they aren't on the floor and they are all projects neatly organized with all the parts together.
|The other end of the ironing board.|
Can't work without books on tape.
|Waiting to be put away?|
|Even a few quilts can be found here|
With the studio in the basement sometimes it takes a while for things to find their way back upstairs. I need to come up with a nice use for those wooden peach crates. I'm tired of moving them around.
Behind the green curtain is a stubbed in bath that I hope to have finished next year. Having to stop working to go upstairs for a bathroom break interrupts things for too long. A finished ceiling in the basement would be nice too. Of course having workers tracking in and out to do this and all the rearranging it would take is an issue. I guess no pain no gain.
I have a lot of space but I have a lot of stuff filling it all up too. If I could sell my old short arm and old longarm it would clear out some space. The shortarm is in my sewing studio (no pictures) and takes up 12 feet of it. The longarm fills the closet under the stairs.
I hope you've enjoyed this glimpse of my Real Studio. It's not a showcase but it's very functional for me.

I really enjoy visiting your studio and how neat to see you use the white meat trays like I do to "store" things!! Wow, you have 2 longarms and a short arm!!!! I'm a book collector just like you.ReplyDelete

I am so glad your studio looks worked in!!! What brand of longarms are the old and new?? The new one looks like an Innova and since I have one I am rather curious!!ReplyDelete
