Finished and Moved In!

I have had several questions about how I wrap and store my fabric, I will be posting a quick photo tutorial on how to do it. So if you are interested in learning more, check out the sidebar for a link to "Fabric Wraps" If you do not see a link, that is because I don't have it up yet, check back later today! (4/24/2009) Thank you for stopping by!

Hi all, Well, this will be my last construction blog!!! As of 4:30 this afternoon I am moved in and unpacked! I still need to put my quilting machine on the frame, but need to install the optical sensors for the cruise control and that will take some doing so I may wait a week or so for that one. Other than that, I have spent the last 5 days hanging, sorting, organizing and putting away.
As usual a picture is worth a thousand words so here are the pictures!

This one is my machine, Torries Machine is to the right of mine, just not in the picture. And next to my sewing table is my laptop!This is my cutting table, with all of the scissors, rotary cutters, and rulers hanging on the wall. The cabinet gives me Massive storage space, you would not believe what all I have down there!The cabinets in this shot and the next are all of Torries flannel for her Silver Award. Another Shot of Torries flannel and my book case. I may make one change to the layout, this cabinet is not as tall and has a bit more open space than the shelves that I have all of my material on. We want to put a TV out there for my other daughter to watch while we sew, So I may switch the two and hang a TV from the wall for Morgen.This is my Quilting frame, I still have a bit to do before I can use it. I will have to pull it out from the wall into the center of the room when I quilt, but it slides pretty easily so it should not be too much of a problem.The futon and my white board, great for practicing free hand quilting! Thank you Dawn (aka the Pajama Quilter)This little cupboard holds my scraps and my stabilizer for my embroidery plus a bunch of other embroidery related materials.Fabric storage (my cottons) and my embroidery machine, thread and hoops.Front shot of my fabric storage, this is the one I may move to fit the TV.

Another shot of the fabric shelves. I was amazed at how much this holds, each shelf measures 11 1/2 inches square, I used a 5 inch ruler to wrap all of the fabric, measured, wrapped and labeled each one. So, that's it for now, I have to run, just got a call company dropping by!

Thanks for looking.

I love a peek into your sewing room Ginny. It's fun to see how everyone stores their fabric and arranges things.

Greeting from Maine..Sewing room looks great....I have my fabric in a cabinet as I have a lot of sunlight and had the experience of some fading..looks like a great layout...

I love your sewing room! It looks light, bright and fresh. You have thought of everything!

Don't you LOVE having your own sewing space and sewing with your daughter? Its totally the best!
I have the same frame as you do and upgraded my carriage to the new metal one... its soooo awesome and totally feels like I have a whole new frame. The stitch regulator works great on it too.
Hope you are enjoying your space!

The funniest thing about your comment, that was my Old,old frame. I have since sold that one, gotten a new one and am right now in the process of selling THAT one to make room for my new 12 foot Suzy Q!
