The Sewing Workshop is starting to come together...

I did end up changing a few things around...not a lot...but enough to give the room a different feel.  I will have to think of some processes differently when sewing because of that but the previous version of the sewing workshop had gotten junky and stuffy.  

I really do like things sleek, minimal and tidy so that's the principal I'm using to reset the room.  I know that what I have will fit in the room, I just need it to fit in better. And after getting everything but the fabric back into the room, I think I've accomplished that goal!

Maybe catastrophes are a good thing because they make you rethink what you're doing...again I'm looking for the positive in what was a very stressful situation.


The fabric shelves are still empty ~ waiting for the fabric's return

Some drawers are the same - some have been used differently

This is the only set up that's still the same



Current magazines will go on the top shelf
Fabric will fill the bottom shelves

So everything is in except for the fabric.  I don't want to rush filling the shelves and I want to get as much out of the remaining bins as possible, so it will be done while I'm off later this week.




The car can go back in the garage...

The only thing is that there will be no sewing this weekend.  I thought about it but after moving everything around and setting things up I'm just too tired to attempt to sew.  I need to give a great big shout out to my daughter who helped me get everything back into the sewing workshop.  I couldn't have broken it down, or set it back up without her help!

...as always more later!

  2. Basement floods indeed are stressful. I hope you're able to get things back in order soon so that you can resume sewing.

  4. Periodically rethinking one's work space is a good way of becoming more efficient in doing certain tasks. So sad that you first had to go through a crisis, but hopefully you'll have everything in perfect order soon.

  9. Glad to see your a few steps closer to "normalcy". I'm sure you'll breathe a huge sigh of relief when the last box/bag is empty! Hang in there, sending big hugs and positive vibes!

  11. Fingers crossed your rearranged sewing room brings good feng shui vibes and you don't go through another disaster. I think your daughter is being clever and taking care of her future inheritance!

  12. Carolyn -

    No doubt, you will be truly happy when the job is done. Not only because your house will once again be in order, but because you will have your sanctuary back.

    Watching you go through this ordeal has inspired me to rearrange my sewing space to make it more efficient. Of course, I don't know when that will happen because, like you, I will first have to dismantle the entire room. Then I'll have to have someone come over to help me move some of the heavy stuff around. Hopefully, all of this will take place before I start my holiday sewing.

  19. Oh NO! I've just read about your sewing room catastrophe... how traumatic! You seem to have everything beautifully under control and will come out of it with a really well-sorted out-and-organised space, which is good, right? I'm thinking of you!

  23. Best of luck with your project. You are always so thoughtful and intentional. Enjoy the holiday, too!

  24. It's so good to see that you're starting to move back in. Just a little worry thought, though. Do you really want to put the fabric on the bottom shelves? I'm so paranoid of accidents of any kind with water and what have you that I always keep my fabrics far away from the floor. In my humble economy, magazines and patterns are replaceable, but fabric.... not so much. Just a thought. :)
