Where I sew month 2012: A look at Safety Pin Studio

It's "Where I Sew Month" at Pink Chalk Studio, my favorite online fabric shop.  I posted a link to the blog there last year and got lots of new visitors, so I thought I'd take some new photos of Safety Pin Studio and post again.  Please check out the Pink Chalk link above to visit more amazing sewing studios.

My studio is a tiny fourth bedroom in our house.  I remodeled the closet so that it's all shelves in which I store supplies and finished, rolled up quilts.

Check out my new ironing board cover courtesy of Michael Graves designs for Target.

Having a studio, a space dedicated to creative work,  has been really important to me over the years.  My work table takes up most of the room now, but it is vital to everything that I accomplish in the studio.  Most of my fabric is stored under the table in bins; some is in the closet.  In Indiana, I was able to have my fabric stacked on shelves.  It's probably the biggest thing a miss here, but I've made adjustments in the way I work and I love the cosy aspect of Safety Pin Studio.

Great space and I agree that a cutting table is one of the most important things to have!

Nice looking studio, Dana. Hope you get plenty of time to spend in there this summer!

Great studio Dana! I have to empty this room out of my sewing before everyone arrives tomorrow - trying to get the last little bit of sewing in first. Have a wonderful Fourth of July!

Thank you, Connie.

Thanks, Eileen. We are working on some projects around the house, but I'm grabbing a little time in the studio when I can.

All the best,

Happy 4th to you, too, Mary. I can't believe how grown up Audrey is. Have fun with your family.
Warmest regards,

Always love to peek into where other quilters make their creations! Thanks for letting us view!

You are most welcome, Frieda. I love your photographs of Scotland so much, not to mention the looks you share of your wonderful art-making.
Kindest regards,
