My Sewing Studio!
Drum roll please - Mr F has been very busy over the past couple of days putting together the furniture for my sewing studio. This has been awaited for so long - we first submitted the plans for our extension to our local council back in August 2015 - which they subsequently lost (the official word was "mis-placed"!!) and were finally returned to us along with the go ahead to start the building work in July 2016. And finally my studio is ready for me to start being creative in! It's going to take a long time to find a home for everything in this 5x5 Kallax storage unit from IKEA!! I'm feeling quite overwhelmed by the amount of work I still need to do sorting through everything that has been boxed up for the past few months, and I might have to get a few of my local quilting friends to help me have a de-stash!! Oh and as you can see, there is a little splash of colour in my new studio - I bought a beautiful wrought iron coat stand a few weeks ago from a local charity shop, and it's perfect for hanging my homemade tote bags on!

I am interested in how you did plan and store everything in your new sewing studio,l keep trying ,but it always ends in a muddle. You seem to be very organised and get such a lot done.

Hi Christine - there are several pictures on my blog showing how my studio looks. The large furniture pieces were bought from Ikea, as detailed in the information with the picture above. I've used Really Useful Storage Boxes in the Kallax unit, along with some Ikea wicker baskets. I keep it as tidy as possible - I can't work in a messy room!

Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
