Adele Hetzel says
all the rooms look great but most are impractical. The thing that bothered me most is the fabric stored openly with exposure to sunlight. As in as little as one summer all the fabric could be sun bleached on the exposed side/fold thus ruining it. This would be a good idea only in a room without windows. Secondly by putting sewing tables in a corner there would be no room to the left of the sewing machine (needle) for medium to large projects.. forget making drapes or quilts.
and the most impractical would be having live plants that need water above threads that would be ruined by water dripping on them.
These rooms were probably not designed by sewers.
Judy Metzger says
ok. I might agree about the sun bleached material. However, just move the material to a place that does not get direct sunlight. As for live plants, don’t position them above the threads. maybe bottom right corner.
I agree that these sewing rooms are impractical, in the real world, many can’t afford all these nice cabinets. I don’t want all the knickknacks everywhere. I do however want a large cutting area and a large sewing area with extra room behind sewing machine for my quilts as I am quilting! If just dabbling in sewing, then they are very nice. Where are you putting all your fabric hoards?
I use toilet paper empty rolls to store cords.
Nell Carol Kozub says
I have TOTES of fabric! No way to keep it on display! I have mine inventoried and put into numbered totes so I can find what I need. At least 20 totes! I have buttons by color in drawers of storage units and the same with bigger drawers of thread. I have zippers divided by size and type and put into shoe boxes for easy retrieval. I have several machines and they are side by side with a chair that has wheels to slide from one machine to the next (sewing machine, serger, and blindstitch for hemming. My vacuum board is across from them to easily get to it when needed. I often use a cardboard cutting board that is placed on the vacuum board to cut things that are not terribly large, and put a banquet table up to cut larger things. May not be the magazine perfect looking set up, but its certainly the best workable setup for serious sewing.
I agree these are not entirely practical… but the pegboards are good, and perhaps the material won’t be there for long and so fading won’t be an issue. It would be quite sad if these lucky sewers weren’t ‘serious’. To each there own.
I have a bedroom converted into a sewing room that has a lot of windows at the north end as well as a door to the outside. The closet is being turned into shelves to hold bolts of fabric and I am thinking of putting cubby holes in as well to hold measuring tapes, and other sewing accessories. There will be a lot of light but no direct sunlight on any material. Although I love plants and have a lot of them outside, there won’t be any in my sewing room. I am trying to figure out how to keep my threads very near my sewing machine. I do a lot of embroidery and need a lot of colored threads nearby. I am having a cutting table installed in the middle of the room so I don’t have to walk far. Any ideas would be helpful on the best use of space possible would be helpful.
I keep my threads in a cabinet with all size depth drawers. Top is for my scissors, markers, seam rippers, etc in silverware trays. Another drawer has all threads and bobbins in cases. The other 2 are misc sewing supplies. This I keep to the left of the sewing machine under my sewing table. Turn the corner to the right is my design wall. To the left of my sewing cabinet is my irioning station on top of cube storage. One cube has all ironing supplies, while the rest have my info projects. Turn the corner to the left are 2 tall bookcases for my fabrics and books. To the left is my cutting table into the middle of the room with storage underneath. The other side of my cutting table is my office area. There is one window in the room between my sewing table and my ironing station. I do not worry about fabric fading because the whole side of the house has an awning 12 1/2 feet out from the house. Hope this helps!
The first picture on this page caught my attention – and not comfortably so – there are just some photos that cannot be flipped (mirror-imaged). Sports, music, and SEWING are just three. That “backwards” machine is just wrong and is the first hint that this post holds many impracticalities for true, avid sewers.
