In this post, I'll show you the pics with a little info. On my other blog. I'll give more details on the organizing of all my stuff so if you're interested, visit Diana's Sewing Lessons in a couple of days and I'll have some details.
Before I get into it I have to give my husband Bob a lot of credit. He ended up having to assemble 11 different units to make my dream room a reality!
One of the longest wall holds most of my fabrics and other important components for my sewing . It consists of six units which are really closet organizers. They were made by Sauder and bought at Canadian Tire.
The drawers hold my silks ,interfacings, and pattern alteration stuff. The pattern boxes were shoe boxes covered with fabric from my Home Dec stash. All the baskets came from other parts of my house. I didn't have to buy even one as I have a huge collection of all types of baskets.
We used one more unit by the door and I decided not to add a top unit here.Iwanted a space to hold my pressing tools. After sewing a little today, I can attest to how convenient this placement is..Also,I want to put an inspiration board on the wall here.
The other long wall holds my self- designed work station.I wanted to be able to roll my chair from one machine to another without any obstruction so we used two tall bedside chests (yes, Bob had to put those together too.) at each end. My carpenter added side ends as well.
Over the workstation are these wall hutches bought at Home Depot. I love these little beauties! In the various baskets/ boxes are found all my supplies like serger threads, buttons, trims, zippers, elastics, etc.
I made sure that there would be enough room for both my dress forms in my new sewing room.
Originally, I had asked for a 16' by 16' room. Because of things being in the way, I ended up with 13.5' by 15'. Close enough.
I didn't want any clutter and there had to be a place for everything. So far, I think I managed to make that happen. Bob and my carpenter were constantly asking me if such and such were in my "dream". Poor guys. They were awfully glad to finish on Thursday! The grommets for the cords of my machines still have to be drilled and installed but other than that and getting someone to help carry my extremely heavy cutting table downstairs, my Dream Sewing Room is finished.
I feel so terribly lucky tonight as I type this post! To have such a wonderful husband . healthy children, and grandchildren and a beautiful sewing room is really amazing. Never a day goes by that I don't thank God for my many blessings!
Hope you're having a wonderful week of sewing!
