nomadic sewing

After we moved to our new house last September, I set up my sewing room on the second floor. I was pretty pleased with it until November, when a cold spell hit, and I couldn’t go upstairs without donning several layers of fleece, down, and other arctic gear (we have no insulation on the second floor, and we’re not heating it right now, either). Anyway, a couple weeks ago I moved everything to the basement room, which is now a multipurpose room (guest/sewing/treadmill room). I finally got most everything set up today. It still has a ways to go, but I think it is now functional:


I couldn’t figure out how to make the colors in the panorama blend together. Can you believe I took an online Photoshop class, and I ended it knowing less than when I began?

    looks pretty awesome to me!!!
    and yes considering what i’ve just been through i can totally believe you would know less/do worse after the class.

    that looks like quite a nice basement room!
    and I wish I could take a Photoshop course 🙂

    I love your basement room! I, too, have not been happy with my second floor sewing room setup since our move, but although we have a huge finished basement, it doesn’t have any windows. Makes me feel a bit claustrophobic, so I’m sticking with the second floor for now.
    Looks like your setup is very functional!

    I’m TOTALLY jealous of that room! In Abq they don’t have basments which really makes storage space a wee bit difficult!

    That is a neat craft room!

    Looks great! I’m in the midst of trying to set up a basement multi-purpose area for sewing/knitting/weaving/computing in part of a massive one-room finished basement. I’m finding it hard to remember about all the supplies I own and keep them organized enough to actually use them on a semi-regular basis. SO, given that I lack the technology to create a giant transparent shelving unit, do you have any advice on keeping things in sight/order?

    lol – i can totally relate to photoshop woes! Just a thought but… did you already try going to “Image > Adjustments > Color Balance” to correct the color?

    Very nice! I wish my sewing and craft stuff had that much room to breathe, instead of the side of our walk in closet. That looks so airy and light and easy to find things. Lovely 🙂

    It looks so spacious and not at least – tidy! You’re welcome to come and organize my sewingroom too 😉

    Thanks for sharing your office! It’s so nice to catch a glimpse. I can’t believe you have 3 sewing machines set up! I thought I was the only one who owns three but I’ve never had the space to keep them all ready. Very lucky!
