My New Sewing Studio

My New Sewing Studio

I have been sewing for decades, but like many home sewers, I have never had a dedicated space where I could set up shop and have everything I need at arms length – until now. This is my new sewing studio that my husband and I made in a portion of our basement. Its not a finished basement so its a bit rough, but it has everything I need to sew and has become a great space to conduct private sewing lessons.

The highlight of the space is my cutting/work table. Made of a standard melamine board and table legs from IKEA, its both wide and tall enough to comfortably cut fabric and work on projects. No more aching backs for me.

The best part, I don’t have to pack up everything until the next time I want to sew. I simply turn off the lights and return ready to sew when the passion moves me.

I love this new space and can’t believe for all the years I have been sewing I waited this long to create my new space.

    There is nothing like a dedicated space, no matter where it is or how rough. It is yours! You will be amazed at how much more productive you become in your own space.

    Looks really lovely. Sew happy for you:) I am in the process of sorting my office space out and can hardly wait. It would be great not having to pack my machine up each evening.

    All the best.

    Thanks for the Ikea tip for the desk. I need a large one myself and don't want to spend a lot at the moment for one.

    You and your husband have done a great job.

    All the best to you.

    I agree with Sewista, a dedicated space is so precious. I have outgrown my space and am hiring someone to help me DIY cabinets and shelves. Enjoy your new space.
    I love the industrial looking lights! That is on my list too, and I am thinking possibly can lights.

    I especially like the look of all the storage on the back wall... always interested in how people sort/keep supplies, fabrics, patterns. Love the lighting, as I never seem to have enough where I'm working.

    Great sewing space. I am in the middle of creating a room as well. My husband is busy making cutting table and desks. I will post mine when complete. Happy sewing!
