I’ve spent the last three weeks redoing my sewing studio. I used to have, among other things, a combination of free standing shelves and a portable project wall which have now become a rail and bracket shelving system to the ceiling, a permanent 8′ square project wall (using this tutorial), a peg board, and yarn cubes!As it turns out, drilling into nearly 100 year old brick covered in concrete is a PAIN IN THE ASS. Even with the right tools, finally, it took 5 trips to the hardware store to get everything I needed. I’d say it was worth all the work!The shelves are 7″ deep at the bottom and 20″ at the very top with a couple other sizes in between. I had the cubes already and used a studio-mates’ yarn winder to re-ball all my yarn so they stack neatly. Vinyl is rolled and stored in a large shipping tube. I spent about $300 all told, and I’m really happy with it.
I also finished my color wheel quilt from last year’s Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts project! I hung it high up in the small community space of the studio and I love it there. I will take better photos of it and show it off soon.Currently, my Field Study kaleidoscope quilt is on the project wall, something I am more than ready to get back to work on!
