Today up on deck we have MARLENE who hails from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!
She has eagerly agreed to send me photos and share her sewing space with us.
Don’t you find it inspirational to see where others sew? I know I do!
Hi Bonnie.....love the idea of sewing room tours !!.....so here is mine.....it is the second bedroom in my little house and i have filled it to the brim !!.....my name is Marlene and i live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Thank you for sharing your home and sewing space with us, Marlene! I loved it! It looks so cozy and inviting!
This is the annex to the sewing room !!....when i need to spread out, i set up my table used for layering in the living room.....have task lamp handy that i use when hand sewing in the evening......on the table are pieces of flannel for a quilt for my son-in-law.....red, grey, black.....very manly....:))
into the sewing room...!!..on the ironing board is heaped ONE of the works in progress waiting for more FMQ..bag is hanging on closet door.
Inside the closet....where i have been keeping fabric of 1 meter or larger in length....am in the process of transferring it to shelves so i can see it more easily.....also contains the usual assortment of scraps, do dads, finished quilt tops etc
Design wall and regular cutting table with two blocks of Quilted Village - another work in progress
The largest part of my stash, plus books magazines, etc
Another work in progress - remember the days pre internet and you could order fabric thru the mail..??.....the company would send out tiny fabric samples to choose from...i have been trying to clean and organize and found several envelopes of these tiny bits.....1 1/2 inch square....and all different !!.....could i throw these away...???......NO of course not.....so i am turning them into 4 patches and not sure what will come next....clearly the cat has walked thru them.
The central action centre!!.....i have a new Pfaff 4.2 and love love love it !! office chair with lots of pillows, old CD player, empty cubby hole where the cat sleeps and an awesome window that i had put in that looks onto my back garden. I need natural light and could not sew facing a wall. My sewing room contains photos, pictures and things that mean the most to me because someone whom i love has given them to me....To anyone else, it might look like junk, but they fill the room with warmth and love, complimenting the positive energy from all the colours and fabrics.
Thanks for the opportunity of allowing me to share my space and i am so looking forward to seeing the sewing rooms of others....!!
I also love how it seems to creep from one room into the next into the next into the next…a girl after my own heart!
Today our cruise has us in Cozumel, Mexico! Be watching for tonight’s evening post to find out what the Williams’s got up to on THEIR Cozumel stop!
Our photos will post when I return home to the land of internet!
