My studio setup has been bothering me for a few months now and I’ve been thinking about how to rearrange things to make it better. I have several issues in the room that limit how I can set up my areas but I think I’m off to a decent start.
I moved my small cutting table to another part of the room and swapped it with my ironing board. I removed the quilt rack that was in one corner and also the clothes rack and put those in my guest room. They don’t need to take up space in my sewing room. I like the placement of the ironing board. It can move around the room where I need it to be, I can swivel around in my chair as I’m sewing to iron something really quick. I originally had it set up this way but changed it last year when I got a wild hair. I think this format works better.
The last little change I made was to label my bins above the new ironing station! I originally wanted to use them for scraps but I quickly figured out it just wasn’t working. So now they hold things like my mailing supplies, binding clips, stabilizer cuttings, and applique cutouts. It keeps clutter put away which is always a good thing.
The big lightbulb moment of the day? Seeing the bottom row of pegs on my thread organizer and realizing my cutting tools and lint rollers fit perfectly on them. It keeps them organized and out of the way but nearby when I need it! I was so excited about this when I found it. If I ever get so much thread I don’t have room for my tools anymore we’re in trouble.
