My Studio

Tomorrow I'll be back to post some Old Red Barn quilts that I have been working on this past week or so for the winner of free quilting services - Quilting Barbie, and another is a client I met through the Old Red Barn Flckr group!

I've been thinking you might like to see some photos of my basement studio. I know I always enjoy seeing others workspace and how other people organize their supplies. Here's how I currently organize mine.
The photo above shows my own to be quilted tops hanging in the order I want to quilt them in. The 2 quilts on the right and the quilt to the left of the pantographs are client quilts. My thread storage is to the left. I have 3 racks for quilting threads. I think I'll mount another rack soon as the 3 I have are getting really full.

Myself, in my longarm studio.

This photo shows my domestic machine. I sew on a Janome 6600P. This is were I do all my piecing.

This is my cutting island and my stash shelf. You can see about 1/2 of my stash as the island covers the rest.

Through the doorway there you can see my scrapbooking station. This is were I update my kids photo albums, make greeting cards, wedding seating charts, and all other paper related crafts.

This is my scrapbooking station from another view. It is actually in a hallway.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my studio.
