New Tools

After the addition of my new machine in December, I did some major rearranging.  I'm really happy with how my Sewing Lab looks now, but I don't really have a place for my other sewing machines.  


With my constant obsession with rearranging, I need my furniture and accessories to be flexible.  With that in mind, I purchased a table insert for my SewEzi table which will allow me to switch machines at will rather than having custom inserts for each machine.  The insert just arrived, and I think it's going to work great for me.



 I still have the custom insert for when I use Nina (my Bernina), but when I want to use my Featherweight (still unnamed) or my little Juki (freebie with my new Juki and also unnamed) I can just pop in the SewEzi table insert.  The two little machines will be used for piecing blocks rather than quilting, so I don't think the lack of an extension table is an issue. 


These books also arrived while I was gone this past weekend.  I am super excited to learn how to take better photos of my quilts, and really needed Denyse's new book since she'll be the keynote speaker at QuiltCon (like anyone needs a reason for a new book!).

Happy stitching....and reading!

  1. Great that you are able to utilize the same table for different machines. And a girl can never have to many books. Especially those.

  2. Congrats on getting your sewing lab set up. Such a great feeling to have your creative space arranged just the way you want, isn't it. And new sewing books are always so inspiring and thrilling, so I'm sure you'll have fun paging through those new treasures.

  3. Looks like a lot of fun. Your table will be great. I always love new books. I can't wait until we build our addition to our house so I can redesign my quilting space. My small space is driving me nuts right now!

  4. I've been wanting a SewEzi table for a long time, mainly because I attend a lot of retreats, sewing days, and you never know what kind of table set up they'll have.

    Just got that Photography book and the Quilting Arts magazine, we'll have to compare notes...

  5. I like where you have your sewing table. Having that natural light should help unless you get spring fever and want to be outside.

  6. I love your sewing lab!!! I'm sure you will get lots of great ideas from your books. I am counting down the days to what (I hope) will be an entire week of uninterrupted quilting ;-)

  7. It's a constant struggle to get my room set up right. If I'm painting I need it one way and if sewing another way but I love your setup and table. Great green view!
