what would be in your dream sewing room
This may seem ridiculously premature, but I have a question for anyone who sews for a next-Christmas project.
In our little city, a hospice program holds a festival of trees every year for which people decorate trees in various themes to be auctioned off. Some are utterly fantastic, and this has become a huge annual event.
My friends and I are going to make a sewing room for this event in 2006 and I am gathering ideas. The sewing room will have a sewing machine on a stand with a chair, a lamp, a tree, and an armoire with various fabrics and notions in it. Under the tree we will place some homesewn gifts such as a quilt, a doll with extra clothes, and a piece of art wear. On the tree, we will hang more homesewn decorations.
My question is: what do you imagine as being the best, most charming and delightful stuff a little sewing room could have in it if YOU were considering bidding? A pair of gold-plated embroidery scissors? Three yards of silk velvet? A book on millinery? whatever occurs to you…looking forward to input!
