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