Easy-to-Alter Space: Connie Crawford’s Studio

Threads magazine - 165 - Feb./Mar. 2013 Issue
Article Image
When Connie Crawford moved to the Seattle area about 10 years ago, she knew she wanted to stop commuting and work from a home studio. A former fashion designer, Connie had transitioned into a sewing career teaching industry techniques, writing books on pattern-making and fit, and creating patterns for Butterick. She searched for a home large enough to contain a sewing and design studio. The space had to be an office, an inventory room, a shipping room, and, most importantly, a space to sew. The sewing area had to have a long cutting table, a pressing area, and space for multiple sewing machines and sergers. The house around her studio also had to be private, quiet, and pleasing to the eye. Take a tour of Connie’s sewing studio in this article from Threads #165.

    Thanks so much for the post and pictures, I am in the process of setting up a sewing room and do not have a lot of space to do so.

    I especially like the flip down cutting tables and hidden sewing machine tables as well as the storage shelves behind the cutting tables.

    I don't have the funds to have someone put something like this together for me, but there are a lot of pre-cut kits I could modify to create a similar effect.

    The room is narrow and long, so doing a 'wall unit' like the one in your article would be perfect for the space!
