Studio Day 3, Meet Joann!

Joann sent me an email sharing not only her studio space, but her blog which is really fun!
You can find her info at HERE.
She writes:
Hi Bonnie,
I’m sending pics of my sewing room ( s ) and stash so you can share on your blog. 
I hope that you will like the way I put your “scrap user system” to work in my stash...I guess you can say I have been bitten by the scrap wagon bug!
Thanks for all you do and have safe travels! 
This is the view into my office space

It's been awhile since I posted pics of my office and quilt studio, so since I am cleaning them in order to make it nicer for when people come to check out the long arm I am selling to make room for the new bigger long arm I ordered, I thought this was a good time to update my studio pics.
This is where I sew when I want to watch something on the computer. Under this desk area I keep 2 good size containers of crumbs/ fabric. One for neutrals and one for color. 

I keep my treadle machine under one of my windows in the office 

I also have a basic design wall in my office. 

My quilt studio is right next to my office

I have a 2nd design wall in my studio

Opposite of the design wall is where I keep all of my long arm thread, easy for my customers to choose the color of thread they want on their quilts.

Under my long arm, I keep my fabric yardage separated into the 12 colors I keep.

             Next to the yardage is where I keep my fat quarter storage

This wall runs parallel to my long arm and is where I keep my Bernina

To the right of my Bernina I keep some of my scrap user system...

and to the left of my Bernina I keep the rest of my scrap user system. Again all of the areas are separated into 12 colors. They are white, off white, yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, brown, grey, and black.
I use my foyer closet to store my batting and right now on my dinning room table is quilts waiting to be quilted and lots of stuff that is being sold with my long arm.

Thanks for sharing your studio space, Joann! I love seeing how people put the space they have to such good use!
I look forward to sharing more studio photos with you during our cruising week!
