A Burds Style Webinar, A New Sewing Room, etc

It's been an eventful week.  Besides being in the middle of having a new sewing room built, and cleaning out my old one  ( WOW! I've got a lot of stuff! ), I received an email form Burda Style wanting to know if I'd be interested in doing a webinar. I was astonished, flattered, astonished, overwhelmed, amazed and scared, all at once!

It's a really busy time here at my house so I have to think it through carefully. I'll let you know what comes of it!

I also realized I forgot to show you the inside of my coat last week and since it's really pretty , I'll post a couple of picks.


This is the first time I've actually used one of the labels I made last year!



Of course, I didn't sew a stitch this week  but here's a peek at my new SR. Not quite finished yet but almost.
Just the baseboards and the countertop for my work station left to do!. I'm gradually moving some my things in as you see here.

I covered some Coldwater Creek shoe boxes to store my patterns for easy access (top shelves). I already had all those baskets you see on the other shelves.  On the bottom ,the two baskets hold fabrics for coats and suits/jackets. On the second shelves,one basket holds lining fabrics and the other is for UFO's. The drawers hold interfacings and silks.


My Dh thinks I should have one more of these units but I want to wait and see. I have another unit given to me by Fabricville when I worked there which will be placed on another wall and I don't want another crowded sewing room.

I'll show you more next week.

Hope to sew something this week.

A webinar would be such an exciting opportunity ! Good for you.

Loving the peek of the new sewing room - you'll really enjoy a new space. I'm in the midst of cleaning mine up - maybe sewing will actually happen at some point LOL :-)

I like the way you organized this unit. For some strange reason, I thought I was the only one who covered shoe boxes to make my sewing area look neater. You've done a wonderful job. I agree completely with you about eliminating clutter. But, it's hard when we have so many great sewing supplies, patterns and so much fabric. We do the very best we can.

Good luck with the rest of the organizing project.
