Some inquiring minds have asked………

What does my sewing/quilting “nest” look like????? A very short, somewhat guided ‘tour’………

“L” shaped table custom designed/made by DH

The wonderful sewing table was needed when I had my sewing shop in a retail space in town. When I moved my shop home, I was thrilled to see how perfectly it fit this corner of the room. And so, the tour is ended. If there are any questions, feel free to ask…….

    You have a serger. Do you use it a lot? I’ve never even tried one but I can see they might be useful. Nice tour!

      I do use it on some projects…like the necktie purses and totes I have made. I used it more when I had my shop. My specialty was bridal gowns/bridesmaid dresses and other (ex.-prom)dresses & formal wear. Also, men’s wear alterations (hems, etc). As you can tell from the yellowing, it is an old model…..going on 20 yrs. Before I had it I relied on a zig-zag stitch on the fabric edge. Wished I would have had it for the days of making t-shirts, lingerie, swimwear and dance/skating costumes! Glad you stopped by! Hugs..

    What a great space! I’d love to come peek through your treasure trove! Thanks for showing it to us! (I wouldn’t be caught dead showing mine! LOL!)

    LOVE IT, Doreen! I would feel SO at home in your quilting/sewing space.

    I was thinking today that mine needed a little organization/tidy-up/clean-up. When my pile of scraps from projects tips over onto the floor and my dust bunnies become dust LIONS….well, I think it’s time for a little Little House TLC work. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

      I am SO glad you stopped by…please, remember that a camera can carefully exclude some things, too! Hehe! My stacks of fabric totes, etc are under all those nice tables……there is absolutely NO room for dust bunnies/rabbits/lions!!!!LOL!

    Fabulous ‘nest’ Doreen. Would love to have something similar. We don’t have a spare room. 😦
    Maybe one day. At least with Gary away all week i can spread out in my large farmhouse kitchen and on the big wooden table but it all has to be put away on a Friday afternoon before he gets home. Really love the table and the machine set up.

      I used to create at my kitchen table….when the boys were still home (and using the room as their bedroom!), so totally understand. I would put a vinyl tablecloth over my fabric, etc, that was on the table and move the machine to a corner of the room, then we would have the meal! Removing the tablecloth, then, revealed the sewing project once more. Simplified the maneuver somewhat. Hugs, D

    Your “nest” like mine, reminds of a statement my first quitting teacher made…..nature abhors a vacuum. Of course, she was referring to qui,ting the quilt. But it can also apply to our sewing areas…if there’s an empty space, fill it! And I do!!

  6. Just don’t ask me to photograph my office, at least not until after I purge it of excess paper. My office was once the nursery and then the toy room. Not nearly as spacious as your sewing room, but I love it none-the-less. Thanks for the tour.

    Hi! Your creative space looks so good! Lots of space and you have so well everything in order! What a pleasure to work with a big table. x Teje

    • treadlemusic says:

      Hey, Teje! The nice thing about a picture…I can crop out my organized totes that are under all those flat table tops! Seriously, though…..I do have a very nice space that allows me to leave the “in-process” project out until I am able return to it. So glad you could stop by (so neat how the internet makes your visits possible..all that way..hehe!).
